Description

Towering above the snow-capped mountains that line the French and Italian border, climbing Mont Blanc is the perfect way experience this pristine part of the Alps!

Rising to 4,808 meters (15,774 feet) in elevation, Mont Blanc is the highest peak in Western Europe and the Alps. While climbing it is physically challenging, it is not technically very difficult.

Depending on your ability level and preference, we can choose to head up the peak via either the Italian side, from Courmayeur, or the French side, from Chamonix.

We will either take two to three days to climb the peak, depending on the route. However, the climax of the trip will always be summit day.

Getting a pre-dawn start, we will begin our ascent, enjoying a phenomenal sunrise over the Italian side of the mountain. After reaching the summit at mid-morning, we will drink in the incredible beauty before heading back down to the valleys below.

Among the highlights of the trip is staying in one or more the mountain’s famed refuges. In order to reserve your spot, it is best to book as quickly as possible.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this scenic and exciting adventure, climbing Mont Blanc!
