Join Jon, an IFMGA certified guide, on this 7-day traverse of the classic aretes of Mont Blanc massif. And enjoy the Alps from a new perspective!
Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
This 7-day traverse of the classic arêtes of the Mont Blanc massif will take you across the Alps' alpine mecca. You'll enjoy a bird's eye view of these stunning valleys!
Chamonix is, without a doubt, the best starting point to enter the alpine world in Europe. And, with this program, I'll take you to the incredible ridges that rise over the valleys. So you'll have the best possible views of this paradise!
During this 7-day adventure we'll go over three of the most famous ridges in the world: Arête des Cosmiques, Arête Midi-Plan and Arête de Rochefort. Sometimes the hike will be over rocks and other times over snow.
Moreover, we'll be sleeping in some of the Alps' best mountain huts, both on the French and the Italian sides of the border. Up here, your connection with nature will be unique.
Safety is always my top priority so I've decided to do this program with small groups of 1 or 2 people. This way, I can follow all your movements and also tell you about this wonderful place in a more relaxed atmosphere.
So please let me know if you’re interested in this 7-day traverse of the classic arêtes of the Mont Blanc massif. And please specify all your requests so I can make the proper arrangements!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
