Description

Are you looking for an unforgettable mountaineering adventure? Then join me for this 5-day trip and conquer the summit of Mont Blanc under expert guidance!

Mont Blanc (4810m),on the border between France and Italy, is the highest peak in the Alps and in western Europe. With stunning views, enormous glaciers and vertical walls, it is one of the most popular mountaineering destinations in the world!

This 5-day tour includes training and acclimatization. We will practice rock and glacier climbing on Le Petit Flambeaux and Aiguilles Marbrées. This will help us to learn new skills and to get used to the high altitude. Finally, we will attempt the summit of the iconic Mont Blanc!

We will stay some nights in Chamonix. However, on our way up the mountain we will rest in charming huts surrounded by breathtaking alpine landscapes in Torino, Tete Rousse and Gouter. This is an all-inclusive trip, so you just have to focus on the climb, without having to worry about anything else!

For this trip you need at least an intermediate mountaineering level (rock and glacier climbing). Furthermore, it is necessary to have a good fitness level.

So, if you are ready for an amazing ascent to the top of Mont Blanc, please get in touch with me. Let’s climb to the highest point in the Alps together. 

I also offer mountaineering tours to other iconic peaks, such as Monte Cervino and Lyskamm. Check them out!
