Highlights

  • Come and enjoy a full day glacier trekking day in front of Mont Blanc.

Description

Like a scene from a beautifully shot film, throughout this day long trip, you will get to trek on a high glacier directly in front of the iconic Mont Blanc peak (4,810m), where you will get to enjoy views of the Alps that you will never forget.

Our adventure will begin at the SkyWay ticket office in Courmayeur. From there, we will take a cable car ride to Punta Helbronner (3,472m). At that point, we will begin our easy and incredibly scenic trek on the glacier before returning to Punta Helbronner. Another wonderful highlight of this trip is we will visit the Rifugio Torino, where you can enjoy even more amazing views.

Due to the easy nature of this trip, no prior experience is necessary. As a result, even mountaineering beginners can enjoy this mesmerizing journey into the Italian Alps.

Not a very difficult trip, you will get to enjoy a thrilling trek on a beautiful glacier in the Alps of Italy. And throughout that trek, you will get to gaze upon several amazing peaks, including the aforementioned Mont Blanc. If that sounds like an adventure you wish to enjoy, just send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

Would you like to do some mountain climbing in the Aosta Valley? Then join me on this 2-day ascent of the Gran Paradiso Peak.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
