    Le Petit Mont Blanc (3,424) definitely lives up to its name. Located in the Alps of France, this mountain is not too far from its larger namesake, Mont Blanc (4,810m). However, because of its smaller stature it is a much less strenuous mountain to climb. Thus making it a perfect peak for beginners wishing to climb in the crisp air of the Alps.

    On this trip, we will spend the entire day ascending and descending this wonderful peak. The trip will take approximately 7 to 9 hours. It is an easy climb, and does not require much prior experience. Scenic and comfortable, climbing Le Petit Mont Blanc is a great way to spend a day in the mountains!

    The trip will begin at the bottom of Val Veny, a magnificent looking valley of the Mont Blanc Massif. From there, we will make our way to the Checrouit lake (2,165m). At this stunning body of water, you will have great views of Mont Blanc, the Dent du Geant (4,013m) and the Brenva Glacier. After the lake we will climb to the bivouac Rainetto (3,046m). Finally, from the bivouac we will make our final push to the summit, where those same amazing views from the lake will be magnified by the altitude.

    It’s not often that in the Alps you have a chance to climb a beautiful peak in just one day. It is even more rare to find such a peak that can be climbed with enough ease that even beginners can do it. However, on this trip, you will have that chance, at Le Petit Mont Blanc. Send me a message if that sounds like something you want to enjoy.

    I can also offer another easy climb in the Alps, a 2 day ascent of the Testa del Rutor mountain in Northwestern Italy.

    I want to post my review on Peaks Hunter Mountain Guides ( see below).I climbed Mont Blanc in September 2019 with Peak Hunter Mountain Guides. The service I received was excellent. They provided me with all the information I requested and more. Scheduling was clear and everything went as it was planned. My guide, Luigi Gagliardi, is a highly skilled professional. He did a great job taking me to the summit, providing me with all instructions and taking a great care of me. I learnt a lot from him. He is also a great person.

    We were guided by PeaksHunter in a Gran Paradiso ascent, and it was memorable! We just would like to thank Silvia and Elis for the wonderful trip we\'ve experienced with their guidance. The communication and organization before and during the trip was clear and detailed. We felt completely supported and safe accompanied by Silvia and Elis. Thanks for clarify all our questions and help us very kindly mainly considering our lack of experience in trips like that. At supermarket, the ride to the park, the lunch before we start, during the trail, at meals in the mountain, at all these moments we had great company and support. This was our first ascent in this altitude and Silvia and Elis demonstrated be professionals very experienced and high skilled. We appreciate the way they enjoy the nature in a respectful and safe manner. They were attentive to the minor details regarding our security and also our experience. We are lucky to have had you as our guides. The best photo we took it is not enough to express how good is the feeling to be at this point in the mountains and appreciate pure nature. We saw landscapes completely new for our eyes in a memorable experience. Silvia and Elis, thank you very much. We really appreciate our time in Gran Paradiso and we feel lucky to be guided by you.
