Two amazing ascents in the same program! Climb up to the summits of the Grand Paradiso and the Mont Blanc in this 6-day mountaineering tour led by Martin, a IFMGA mountain guide from Spain.
Jul, Aug, Sep
It’s my pleasure to invite you to ascend 2 giants of the Alps: the Mont Blanc and the Grand Paradiso. As you may know, the Mont Blanc is the highest summit of the Alps and a classic ascension par excellence. I think that all climbers should climb it at least once in their lives.
As for the Grand Paradiso, it is a mountainous massif between the Aosta Valley and Piedmont, in Italy. With a height of 4061 meters it’s the seventh highest peak the Grayos Alps.
We will first reach the Grand Paradiso summit and then, we’ll head to our biggest goal: the Mont Blanc. Technically, it is not a complex ascent. However, it requires a good fitness level, some basic mountaineering skills, such as walking in crampons and using an ice axe and good acclimatization.
There is an option of ascending the Mont Blanc by the normal Gouter route or by the route of the “four thousands”, depending on the participants level.
Spending the nigh under the stars, watching the sunrise on the summit and the views of all the Alps at our feet. They are the things which make this trip unforgettable!
So, if you find this mountaineering trip interesting, please fill the form and get in touch with me. I will be happy to lead such a challenging expedition in the Alps!

We enjoyed this trip in the Alps very much!! It was an excellent introduction to mountaineering and the stunning peaks of the Alps massive. Our guide Martin made the full experience a succes; pushing us to the limits, keeping us safe at difficult rocky ascents, but also taking time to enjoy the scenery and the climb. Thanks a lot for the beautiful pictures too!
