Description

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!

And if you’d like to check out some of my other programs, please take a look at my 7-day Monte Rosa mountaineering summer program or my 8-day Mont Blanc trekking tour.
