    Let me invite you to live 5 great days in Mont Blanc. As you may know, it is one of the most beautiful mountains in the world.

    Mont Blanc is the summit that every climber should reach at least once in life. It is an iconic symbol of the mountain above Chamonix, Saint Gervais and Courmayeur. In addition, its ascent allows mountaineers to try a unique alpine experience and enjoy the magical scenery of the Alps.

    As for the itinerary, we can take the French routes (Goûter hut or Cosmiques) or the Italian one (Gonella Hut). But first we will dedicate 3 or 4 days to an acclimatization. It will also work as a technical preparation while enjoying a breathtaking landscape through glacier walks.

    I generally recommend to do this ascent in 5 days in order to maximize our chances of reaching the summit. The few days before the ascent are designed for your body to get well acclimatized. Please note that Mont Blanc is not for beginners.

    The best time to climb Mont Blanc is usually between the months of June and September.

    At the bottom of this page you will find the program I usually offer. It’s only a sample itinerary. The chosen route will depend on weather and snow conditions as well as on your preferences and physical level.

    So please contact me if you find this 5-day ascent in Mont Blanc interesting. It’ll be my pleasure to be your guide.

    • Day 1Quintino Sella hut (Monte Rosa)

      Leaving from the Gressoney Valley, chair lift to the Bettaforca Pass. Then 3 hours of trekking to reach the mountain hut. Elevation gain: + 860m.

    • Day 2Gnifetti Hut

      Leaving from Quintino Sella hut, we will trek to the Gnifetti hut passing very close to the Lyskamm (4272 m), the emblematic summit of the Monte Rosa Massif. Total walking time: 5 hours. Elevation gain: + 690m / – 640m.

    • Day 3Regina Margherita hut

      Leaving from the highest hut of Europe through an exotic glacier scenery. Descent to the transportation with the assistance of lifts. Accommodation in a hotel or B&B. Total walking time: 10 hours. Elevation gain: + 1000m/ – 132 m.

    • Day 4Goûter hut

      Going up from The Houches by a rack railway up to the Nid d’Aigle. An easy trail leads us to the Tête Rousse glacier, then we will make a short break on a hut with the same name. After that we’ll set about the spur of the Aiguille du Goûter to reach the Goûter mountain hut. Night at the refuge (3817 m). Hiking time for the day: 5 hours. Elevation gain: + 1020m.

    • Day 5Mont Blanc Summit

      Leaving from the hut at 4 am to the Dôme of the Goûter through easy snow slopes. Short descent to Dôme pass, walking across the glacier plateau and taking an increasingly pronounced climb to the Vallot mountain hut where we will make a short break. Then we will approach the Bosses ridge, steep and sharp. Here is when we’ll take the ridge towards the rocks of the Tournette and then the final sharp edge, with the reward at the end since finally the summit appears. At this stage it is almost about to happen! Upon reaching the top, a small photo session, an overview, an appetizer and the descent will start. Do not forget that when we get to the top, we will be halfway, concentration will still remain a necessity!

      It will take us about 2,5 hours to reach the Goûter hut again. After a short break, we will set off for the descent of the Aiguille du Goûter to return to Nid d’Aigle and the valley. Total duration: 10 to 12 hours. Elevation gain: + 1000m and -2020m.

    The best trips I have ever taken! Andrea was a fantastic guide, very friendly and made me feel extremely safe at all times. I came in with no prior experience and he taught me everything i needed to know for the trip and went at my pace. The trip was well organised and ran smoothly. Would 100% recommend.
