Description

Follow me up Mont Blanc, one of the most iconic peaks in the Alps. During 6 days, we’ll explore the French side of this impressive mountain between the Monte Rosa and Monte Bianco group. Join me!

For this adventure, we’ll meet at Gressoney Staffal and spend the first 3 days at the Gnifetti Hut (3,600 meters) for acclimatization. The following three days will be spent attempting to reach the Mont Blanc summit (4,810 meters) from the French side. We’ll try to spend those nights at the Gouter hut (3,800 meters), but it is a hard place to book, so we might stay at the Tete Rousse Hut, just a bit lower down in the mountain. For a more detailed description of the itinerary, make sure to read the section below.

The dazzling Mont Blanc is Europe’s highest mountain and is also considered one of the eight Wonders of the World. Send your request to explore this outstanding mountain. Take part on an epic adventure planned for intermediate mountaineers!

For more summer adventures in Italy, follow me to ascend the Monviso peak and/or enjoy canyoning in different locations around northern Italy.
