This 6-day Mont Blanc climbing course will help you reach the summit of the highest peak in the Alps!
The Mont Blanc (4810 m) is located in the border between Italy and France. It’s the highest mountain in the Alps and in western Europe, and it’s one of the most famous peaks to summit on Earth!
But although it may seem like an easy hike from above, it’s in fact a very hard high-altitude mountaineering experience, that requires a very good fitness level and some technical mountaineering skills. Plus, you’ll need to have previous acclimatization.
So, in this 6-day course we will show you how to build your “Mont Blanc project”. You will learn roping, crampons and glacier walking techniques. We will sleep in high altitude mountain hut to get your body used to the lack of oxygen. We’ll also guide you through acclimatization climbs to prepare your body and mind.
It will be a great experience, where you’ll be learning and exchanging mountaineering knowledge and at the end of the week, we’ll attempt the Mont Blanc ascent.
There are two routes that we can follow:
- The Dôme du Goûter and the Arête des Bosses,
- The Trois Monts (Mont Tacul, Mont Maudit, Mont Blanc) leaving from the Aiguille du Midi.
Sounds like an amazing weekend? It is! Send us a request and we’ll make this 6-day Mont Blanc climbing course a memorable experience!

Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
