Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

How long should I stay?

A five-day trip covers the best of Chamonix, though more days means more opportunity. The region is quite expansive, so travelers should consider what type of program they would like to undertake. With the Tour du Mont Blanc and other sustained trips, it is a great way to spend the better part of two weeks delving into the beautiful wilderness and unique mountain culture in Chamonix.

Best time to visit

The months from June to September comprise the peak climbing season in Chamonix-Mont Blanc. It can be fairly crowded in the middle of the summer, so spring and autumn also provide reasonable conditions for a trek.

My daughter (17), son (16) and I (53) had a brilliant time over four demanding days of hiking along
parts of the TMB, led by our excellent guide Dave. He extended the routes to give us the best possible experience, matched to our fitness and ability. The accommodation in Refuges was great throughout and my teenagers particularly loved Happy Tracks’ Refuge Le Peuty in Trient. Anja and Raphy made us welcome and it had a lovely atmosphere. If you are fit enough, its hard to beat this trip.
Five amazing days ,professional and friendly service. Keep Calm and Climbing with Sebastien Lauren
We did 10 days TMB with Happy Tracks. All the arrangements were very professionally handles. Our guide Ian was helpful
and knowledgeable. The lunch packets were good . All the refuge and hotels they selected for our group were high quality . All in all we had best trip.
Raphael organizes a well planned 10 day TMB for us. We were a group of 5 and we had Ian
as our guide. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. The hotels and refuge selection was good and we had excellent stay in all places. Our luggage transfer was handled professionally by Rachael along with lunch bags for daily hike. Overall very professionally guided trip by the Happy Track team
I can’t recommend Raphy highly enough. Good company and the magic ability to know who needs help and who needs
to just get on with it themselves. Great choice of hikes with stupendous scenery.
The tour was fantastic and it was made even better because of our guide, Raphael. He was incredibly nice and
helpful while telling us funny and cool stories and facts! LOVED THE TOUR! RECOMMEND 10000000%
Raphael planned a wonderful trip that was well executed! Great hikes, great food, great hotels! So we enjoyed his fellow
guide, Jack, who was very helpful and friendly. Overall, a great experience! Would highly recommend!
Our 5 day tour du Mont Blanc is one of the most amazing experiences of my life. My wife and
I were among a group of friends that consisted of 22 from the USA. Our group consisted of mostly 55-65 aged individuals, and we requested private lodging for the trip. The logistics were perfect, with assistance from Geneva to Chamonix. Our guides, Raphael and Jack, always looked out for our safety during snow and water crossings, and provided for our comfort throughout the hikes. Our evenings were excellent and the meals at local hotels and restaurants were excellent. I highly recommend Happy Tracks for their skill, preparation and planning, and friendliness.
Happy Tracks came highly reccommended to our group. They did not disappoint. Raphael, Jack Anja & Rachel took great care
and pride in providing the best hiking experience on the TMB.
Just completed the 4 day Mont Blanc highlights tour and had the most amazing time. Raphael and Anja are outstanding
and supported us throughout our journey. Raphael is the best mountain guide knowing exactly when to support and when to push. Simply wonderful business
Happy Tracks offer the best service in the world! Our leader the power house woman Anja was amazing. She went
beyond her call of duty at times to ensure we had a super adventure on the Tour Du Mont Blanc. She was always one step ahead of us in terms of our needs. She is passionate about what she does and therefore it comes naturally to her to excel in offering a great service. If you want to experience a trek with a calm confident knowledgeable leader book now!! Epic trip … they also ensure the other people on the trek are cool too! We had an amazing bunch of people on our trip! From 18 year olds to crazy coppers From Wales, to royals ! These people make the trek and Anja facilities the banter! 😘Thank you x Gill
I loved the trip! The trek was very beautiful and challenging, as I like it. Our guide was Raphael. He
was very personable, knowledgeable and just awesome. I would definitely recommend this trek to anyone!
Die Tour Mont Blanc in der Gruppe mit Raffael als Bergführer war einfach wunderbar. Schon beim Buchen haben Anja und
Raffael super schnell und freundlich geantwortet. Die Zeit vor Ort in der Gruppe war fantastisch – die Wege gut ausgesucht, die Hütten urig, die Atmosphäre motivierend. – Man hätte sich nicht mehr wünschen können. Und dann haben uns beide auch noch mit sehr leckeren Menüs in den Selbstversorger-Hütten überrascht. Die Crepes mit selbst gesammelten Himbeeren und Blaubeeren mit weißer Schokalade im Sahne-Bett waren mein Favorit. Vielen Dank, dass Ihr Euch so ins Zeug gelegt habt. Die schönen Erinnerungen klingen noch nach!

The hike was absolutely wonderful. Anja was a great guide who kept sharing lots of information about the region while
we were hiking. She was kind enough to accommodate our food restrictions and brought us wonderful homemade lunches and snacks every day. She ensured our hike was full of different grades of difficulty so we never got bored and learnt a lot. It was an amazing experience and we would definitely recommend Anja to everyone!!!
