    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 SwitzerlandMont 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.

    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.

    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.

    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
