If you're visiting Europe, I say ditch sight-seeing and opt for this hike, as it will bring you as close to Europe's beauty as one can get. Taking you through the most scenic European countries, France, Italy and Switzerland, this is sure to become the hike of your life. The hike circumscribes the Mont Blanc, the 'Monarch of the Alps' and is done in an anticlockwise direction. The route passes through seven picturesque valleys with the most enchanting views of mountains, lakes, and snow peaks, all in one go! This classic hike is perfect for a solo/back-packing trip.
