Type of Trip
Reaching the summit of the Mont Blanc is every mountaineer’s dream. Is it also yours? Then let me make your dream come true!
The Mont Blanc does not need an introduction. However, I am proud to say that, during this 5-day program, you will conquer the highest peak in the Alps. Surrounded by valleys and numerous glaciers, the Mont Blanc is part of a massif that extends between the Valle d’Aosta in Italy and the Haute Savoie in France.
With its 4810 meters of altitude it is not an easy ascent. Moreover, it requires some mountaineering experience and a very good fitness level. You will also need to know how to use crampons and ice climbing gear.
Anyway, I will do my best to help you reach the Mont Blanc summit in a safe way. Therefore, I am leading groups of 2 people maximum. I can adapt the departure dates according to your wishes and availability.
So, please get in touch with me to discuss and plan this trip together. I will be happy to help you reach the highest mountain in Europe!

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

About the Guide
Xavi (Terrassa, Catalonia, 1963). Actually I’m living in Prullans.
During several years I have been practicing my two big passions, mountaineering and photography as hobbies. Actually I’m a High Mountain Guide and photographer in outdoor BTT races, mountaineering marathons or climbing competitions.
In 1982 I did became a member of Servei General d'Informació de Muntanya, a specialized mountain library. And from 1998 I’m working as High Mountain Guide for NKBV (Alpine dutch team).

Since 2005 I lead my own clients around the world as a freelancer Mountain Guide. From September 2007 I manage the Companhia de Guies de Montanha web, bound to Carros de Foc. I have take part in many expeditions to Andes in South America and Himalaya, Karakorum and Hindu Kush in Asia.
