All-In Mont Blanc and Gran Paradiso Climb

With the huts on Mont Blanc closed and climbing suspended Peakshunter reworked our trip very quickly and swapped Mont Blanc with a program on Monte Rosa. With K suffering from altitude sickness on GP the Guide was brilliant in slowing the pace for her to make two summits on Monte Rosa and rather than risk problems by going higher on the last day rearranged the programme again and arranged a brilliant day on the Aiguille Marbrees. Thank you!

Climbing Mont Blanc in 5 days with double chance to summit

The trip rating is actually for summiting Gran Paradiso rather than Mont Blanc. Unfortunately the conditions for Mont Blanc were very poor with all the thawing of the permafrost enabling many rock slides. Explore-Share receives a 4 as the instructions for wiring funds were consistently incomplete. The address for Explore-Share that is on file with the bank is required not just the address of the bank.

All-In Mont Blanc and Gran Paradiso Climb

It was great! Unfortunately we had to cancel mt Blanc due to bad weather, but Gran Paradiso and Montviso (which we climed as an alternative for mt Blanc) were just great! Thanks again!

Aiguilles d’Entrèves guided traverse

The trip was simply awesome. Benja is such a great mountain professional, It was a delight to walk along his side. I would definitely recommend both the man and the guide. He provided us with good tips and a good amount of material as well. His pricing practice is well fitted and super flexible. If you're still wondering whether you want to go or not, please help yourself and go for it! Kévin

Climb the 82 4000 meter peaks in the Alps

We went on a tour to Mont Blanc and Italian Alps with Enrico. He organized everything well, looked after our safety, dealt well with different levels of fitness in our group, was flexible when required, and was always pleasant.

Climb the 82 4000 meter peaks in the Alps

Enrico was a super super guide, very well organised, knowledgable and attentive. He cared for the group and for his sport. We had fabulous trips and very happy memories. Together with we went to Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa, Valle D'Aosta and Dolomiti Via Ferrata. Enrico gave me the skills and confidence to become self-guided and to organise my own trips which is what I am still doing today. I have a great respect for Enrico as an individual, a mountaineer and guide.

More info about Mountain Climbing in Courmayeur:

Situated in the shadow of the Mont Blanc massif, in the northwestern corner of the Aosta Valley, Courmayeur is a popular and ideally located starting point for a variety of different mountaineering expeditions. Along with the lesser-climbed Via Italiana up to the summit of Mont Blanc, there is also the lesser-climbed southern route up to the top of the Matterhorn, or Monte Cervino, as it is known on the southern side of the border. This is challenging variation is also a bit tougher than from the Swiss side, but yields the same unbeatable views. Aside from these two, there are plenty of other iconic peaks to be conquered. Monte Rosa, Gran Paradiso and the Breithorn are all perfectly suited for novice mountaineers looking for some high-altitude alpine experience. Meanwhile, Aiguilles d’Entrèves is the perfect 1-day challenge for advanced mountaineers looking to get another classic alpine route under their belt
