Type of Trip
Join me on this 2-day Mont Blanc climbing trip and I will give you the tips and guidance you need to get the best chances to summit the highest peak in the Alps!
Climbing Mont Blanc (4810 m) is a dream for mountaineers from all over the world. Although it is an achievable goal, it requires physical and technical preparation and the guidance and supervision of a high-mountain certified guide. We will go over the use of crampons, roping and and glacier walking techniques before attempting the summit.
This majestic mountain is the highest peak in the Alps and in Western Europe, standing proud on the French-Italian border, south of the village of Chamonix and northwest of Courmayeur.
I will guide you to the top of this spectacular either by the the Dôme du Goûter and the Arête des Bosses route or by the the Trois Monts (Mont Tacul, Mont Maudit, Mont Blanc), leaving from the Aiguille du Midi.
So if you want to join me on this great climb to Mont Blanc, just send me a request! Book your trip and join me on this memorable experience.

About the Guide
I grew up far from the mountains, and I didn't imagine what was waiting for me...
When I was 17, I had the first symptoms: I left without second guessing it my foreign tongues studies and I settled at Briançon, in the Hautes-Alpes, to satiate my passion for snowboarding. I practiced non-stop for some winters, spending the "summers" in the southern hemisphere.
The virus started spreading: my love for large spaces led me to get certified as a mountain leader.
During 10 years, I spent my summers taking groups to discover the most beautiful hikes around the Ecrins massif.
During this time, I discovered alpinism and a there was a new spark in my eyes. The diagnostic came fast: I was severely passionate about the mountains. Since then I never stopped dreaming of every kind of ascent, and I organised my everyday life to try to achieve many of them.
I learned to appreciate equally the end of the mountain journey and the friend or rope parter with whom I share my trips. After 10 years going through paths with hiking groups and with a fierce desire to go higher, I started studying to become a High Mountain Guide. I became IFMGA-certified in August, 2017.
Today I propose to travel this path, leading us sometimes to a summit, to admire the vastness of the horizon, taking us to something simple, pure and essential.
My head is filled with memories and projects, and I would be thrilled to share one with you. But I'm also here to help you turn your own project into a reality.
