    Do you want to experience an exciting and challenging ascent to one of the most mythical summits in Europe? Then join me on this beautiful 6-day expedition and make your dreams come true. The Mont Blanc ascent is a must-do for every true mountaineer!

    Mont Blanc is the highest peak in the Alps (4810 meters). It lies in the Graian Alps range between Aosta Valley, in Italy and the Haute Savoie, in France.

    At this time, I propose a 6-day program to complete the Mont Blanc ascent. The starting point will be one of the three world-famous villages that surround this summit: Chamonix. Firstly, we will take three days to acclimatize. The ascent will then take place on the last three days.

    Additionally, if you want to participate in this Mont Blanc ascent, keep in mind some important requirements:

    – Technical Level: You must have some experience using crampons and be capable of hiking for several hours (days are long!).

    – Physical level: An excellent physical condition is a must for this trip.

    Here are some of the expedition’s highlights:

    • The Mont Blanc ascent is a classic for mountain lovers. A real “must-do” for your mountaineering record.
    • It includes acclimatization time. We will then ascend using the “Royale” route.
    • You’ll get to enjoy beautiful and breath-taking landscapes.
    • Guiding by an IFMGA-certified mountain guide.

    So do not hesitate to get in touch with me. You will find a detailed itinerary below. However, I can always adapt the program to your abilities, experience and wishes. I will be glad to guide you on such an amazing adventure!
