Description

With its 4810 meters, Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in the Alps. Therefore, you HAVE to climb it if you are a true mountaineer! 

To make sure we will be able to climb this giant, we will ascend Gran Paradiso first. This is a relatively easy 4000er, perfect for a warm-up and acclimatization. Then we move to Chamonix, and from the Cosmiques hut we reach the top of the Mont Blanc.

We will ascend via the Aiguille du Midi route. This route goes through Mont Blanc du Tacul, Mont Maudit and finally Mont Blanc. The views from the top will stay with you forever!

This is a rather demanding excursion and you need to be in good shape. The days are very long! You also need to have some mountaineering experience. In particular, you have to be able to climb on rock and ice, on steep terrain. In fact, I recommend to do a 4000er training beforehand.

Do you want to get to this world-famous summit? Then please send me a request to start this adventure!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
