Description

Do you want to reach the highest point of the Alps with an expert guide? Then this trip is for you. Join me for an awesome alpine experience in Mont Blanc!

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

This 5-day trip starts with some training and acclimatization. We will practice rock and glacier climbing while we get used to the high altitude. This first part of the trip includes climbing on Le Petit Flambeaux and Aiguilles Marbrées. Finally, we will be ready to ascend the impressive Mont Blanc!

On this fabulous mountaineering adventure we will stay some nights in Chamonix. However, most nights we will sleep in scenic and charming mountain huts surrounded by breathtaking alpine landscapes in Torino, Tete Rousse and Gouter.

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

So, if you are up for an unforgettable mountaineering trip in Mont Blanc, please contact me. Let’s live the unique experience of climbing the highest point in the Alps!

I also have an all-inclusive version of this trip. Check it out here.
