This 4-day program in Mont Blanc massif will take you through one of the Alps’ most famous ranges! Come join me and explore this stunning alpine region!
Mont Blanc massif is a mountain range that belongs to the Alps and is situated in the border area between Italy, France and Switzerland. Mont Blanc, the highest summit in western Europe, is part of this glaciated massif. It is a beautiful place to enjoy hiking and discover incredible natural spots and landscapes.
On this program, first of all, we’ll pick you up at the Geneva International Airport at 10 am. We can also arrange to pick you up in Chamonix. Then, during the tour, you will follow different trails through beautiful meadows and valleys. Also, you will contemplate the astonishing views of the Alps and get to see some of the region’s wildlife, such as marmots, ibex and mountain goats. As for the accommodation, we’ll stay in mountain refuges and guesthouses. Finally, at the end of the tour, we can say goodbye in Chamonix or we can go to the Geneva airport. You will find a more detailed description of the itinerary below. However, take into account that it can change according to weather conditions and the group’s level.
Because this is a challenging excursion, it is important to be physically fit and have some prior hiking experience in order to join. These are the Alps after all! Of course, I will be there the whole time to assist you and ensure your safety and enjoyment.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
