More Info

Located in France near the country’s border with Italy, the Mont Blanc massif crowns one of the world’s top alpine playgrounds. With a first recorded summit in 1786, climbing Mont Blanc is a rite of passage for the many climbers that seek to summit the tallest mountain in the Alps (4,810 meters / 15,781 feet). While a tough climb that requires solid physical fitness and technical skills, climbers don’t have to be expert mountaineers to tackle the one of the popular routes to the summit.

A great and wonderful journey. The contact with Peaks Hunter and their guide Alberto was perfect. Despite no one has been able
to reach the summit of Mont Blanc by this way during the last 3 days before our climb, Alberto has succeed to open the way to give us the opportunity to reach the summit. Very versatile, experienced and funny it has been a pleasure to climb the Mont Blanc by this route with Alberto during those two days. Wilder and and less crowded than the Gouter route, if you are well trained and not afraid by some snow/ice walls it is a great adventure, gorgeous landscapes. I recommend to descend by the Goûter Route, a bit longer in distance but shorter in duration and less complex. you will get the chance to see new landscapes and to view from where you have started in the morning. Great journey, thank you Peaks Hunter !
Everything was as agreed.
Trip was excellent but explore share needs to provide more information, the only reason I knew what was going on
is that I was with Azimut on another trip.
Because of not so good weather conditions we had to change the destination of our trip. Nevertheless Nicolas was very
helpful with some alternatives and we ended up having a great time anyway.
My partner and I felt so safe with Mihnea. Mihnea was very professional and listened to how we were feeling
during the entire time he was with us. He is very knowledgable about Mounteering. We decided not to attempt the summit due to bad weather a few days before and Mihnea tailored another plan for us which we had a great time doing. Mounteneering was very physically and mentally challenging and I am glad we got to spend time with Mihnea to learn more about techniques so maybe we can practice more and then one day attempt the summit again with Mihnea. This is a great trip!
I climbed with Marco. He is a very experienced mountain guide with a huge knowledge. I felt safe the whole
time. A lot of laughs during the trip. Thank you explore-share.
3 days for beginners, 2 days for more experimented .. and depending on the logging, difficulty increases … should be
more visible .. Booking was made personally but not by the organization team Pros: – Andreas’s skill as a guide, impressive – knowledge of the mountain – calm and patience Cons : – preparation required from Tete Rousse vs Goûter .. better information needed – extra costs related to the summit .. food, lift, trains , ….
Bit more trouble with booking, it blocked amount from credit card two times. Guide was professional and made climb very enjoyable
Carlos is a fantastic guide – he has over 20 years experience in the mountains and the right attitude: safety
first, then enjoyment. His excellent local knowledge of the routes meant we could adapt to the weather and conditions. He also has the mix of being an excellent alpinist but also loving the scenery and wildlife. We had an incredible experience that we will never forget! This 3 day trip is a great option as you have a ‘training day’ to help acclimatise, refresh skills and come together as a group before your ascent! explore-share is a great platform to connect adventurers with guides and experiences – the chat service allowed us to ask questions first and work out the best dates for us
Carlos is a great guy and knowledgable guide! Although we were unable to attempt to summit Mont Blanc due to
weather, Carlos still ensured that we had a really fun and interesting trip! I would definitely recommend!
Gigio was a fantastic guide and extremely graceful!! His knowledge of the mountain was superb and he did a great
job making me feel comfortable throughout the ascent. Overall the experience was exactly what I was hoping for thanks to Gigio!
Le boss et toute l’équipe sont des grands passionnés, et ça se sent
Mont Blanc is a beautiful climb, due to a tight schedule a 2 day was the only option for me
and while we summited the mountain it felt like we lucked out with a clear weather window. My guide, Mihnea was great! He looked after all the details and offered guidance with my basic mountaineering skills. I would definitely go climbing with him again and would recommend him to anyone!
Great experience with very knowledgeable and friendly guides. Great atmosphere.
We had a great trip and it was an epic challenge but we only made it to 4400metres which is
400metres from the summit when we had to turn around as I became sick with altitude and needed to get down safely. So had to abandon our summit attempt. Gigio was a super guide and looked after us very well and got me as far as I could go but in the end the best decision was to come back down to a safe altitude and feel good again   We had an amazing trip and are not deterred from possibly trying it again someday but will look to acclimatise for longer next time   Thanks for organising our fantastic guide and tell him a big thank you from us  
Jurgen Schnitker for Mont Blanc 2-day climbing ascent
I had a great adventure to climb Mont Blanc and summit successful. The two guide are very nice, friendly and
helpful, I really appreciate them. They always keep the safely first, well done. The experience is very good, from safety, service and Mountain View. I will introduce my friends to come here. Thank you very much!
This was an incredible experience. Carlos did an amazing job. He was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the climb
and was great at getting our shelter and transportation secured all while making sure I was safe and having fun the entire time we were climbing. I couldn’t be more confident to recommend. If you want the adventure of a lifetime, high in the French Alps then climb Mont Blanc with Carlos.
Excellent
