“This guide was a must-have for us! The tips on how to use our phone as a GPS via the Gaia app while without signal saved us hours of backtracking when we lost the trail…I was so impressed! Additionally, the details about where each campsite was what types of things we could find there was invaluable. I HIGHLY recommend this package!” -Julia, USA

Our Story

​Hi! We’re Emily and Ian, a married couple based in Boulder, CO. We share a passion for the outdoors, touring the globe, and travel planning. So when we discovered the Tour du Mont Blanc, it was like the universe had conspired to combine all of our favorite things. We first hiked the TMB in the summer of 2017 and completely fell in love with the mountains, cultures, and the travel experience that can be had with just our feet and our backpacks.

However, in preparing for the trip, we quickly learned that there is a lack of clear, reliable, easy-to-access information out there. We put a LOT of work into planning our own trip, and we wanted to share it with our fellow hikers. Thus, TMBtent.com was born and we haven’t looked back. As we’ve grown the site, we’ve had the opportunity to connect with numerous locals and hikers in order to continually grow our knowledge base.

Nowadays, we are one of the top-ranked TMB resources on the web, and we’re constantly adding and updating our content. In summary, we are just a couple of travel planning enthusiasts who want to help others experience how awesome the TMB can be. We would love to be part of your journey!
