Description

This 3-day Mont Blanc climb will take you the summit of one of the world’s most famous mountains via the classic route to the top. The trip duration is perfect for you to acclimatize properly on your way up, increasing your chance of reaching the objective.

We will start off from Courmayeur and head to the Tête Rousse hut on the first day. Then from there, the following day we will make our way to the Goûter hut. Shorter programs usually skip one of these steps, and therefore, you need to go at a faster pace and have less time to acclimatize. The duration of this program is designed to make sure you don’t rush and that we are all safely ascending at the right pace. On the third day, we will reach the amazing summit of Mont Blanc.

You will need prior mountaineering experience and an excellent fitness level to join this program, however, you don’t need to be an expert as it is not a terribly difficult climb. This doesn’t mean we should underestimate it. There will be a maximum of 2 persons per guide to ensure adequate support for every climber.

Climbing Mont Blanc is an amazing mountaineering accomplishment and we hope that we can guide you to the top of this amazing summit. Contact us today and we will happily answer your questions before you book!
