We have our winner!
Our winner is a lovely lady from the UK who made the shortlist because we loved the challenge that she had set for herself recently. We will let her tell you more about herself.
Her name is Suzanne, she has never trekked in Europe and is very excited about joining us in August! Suzanne has agreed to tell us about her journey - in getting fit for the holiday and the highs and lows of the trek itself, so you will be able to follow her as she begins to get ready for her own Tour du Mont Blanc.
She was picked at random from our worthy list of shortlisted people from all over the world. And we would just like to extend a big "thankyou" to everyone who entered. You may have noticed that we didn't even ask for names this year on the entry form, just your answer and your email address to contact you, so that everyone - no matter their gender or location could see that they would be treated equally and a huge number of you responded. We are sorry we took some time to get the shortlist ready but it's because we considered every single answer and are truly overwhelmed by what trekking in the mountains means to you guys.
For those of you who subscribed to our newsletter, we will be in touch shortly - we only send 4 newsletters per year, but want to welcome all of you into our community.
Mont Blanc Treks
The Tour du Mont Blanc regularly features in the World’s top ten “ultimate” treks. As you follow the ancient mountain hiking trail through the French, Swiss and Italian Alps the landscape is breath-taking at every turn and every day is unique. There are stunning Alpine views (and the fabulous Mont Blanc the star of the trail,) from floral meadows to snow-capped peaks, rich with flora and fauna. And hand-picked accommodation and local gastronomic delights to look forward to at the end of each days walk.
"Covering 170km and 10,000m of ascent, and taking in France, Italy and Switzerland, the TMB is one of the world’s greatest walks, offering trekkers a tough challenge with spectacular scenery"
Andrew Gilchrist - The Guardian
The competition includes:

We know we are lucky to live in these mountains and each year we hope to give something back by offering our winner the chance to discover the beauty of the Alps for themselves.
