Reach the summit of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, on this exciting 5-day course.
Standing at the top of Mont Blanc (4810 m) is something that every mountain lover should experience at least once in a lifetime. Would you like to join me?
The Mont Blanc Mountain Range is an endless playground for mountaineering, rock or alpine climbing and ski mountaineering.
At the heart of this range towers the impressive Mont Blanc (4810 m), the highest peak in the Alps and the most obvious way to start discovering these beautiful glaciated mountains.
This time, I propose a 5-day course that is both a training and an ascent.
The ascent of Mont Blanc (either via the Trois Mont route or Gouter route) is a serious climb due to the logistics required, the strategy of the climb, some objective dangers and -last but not least- the technical difficulties and altitude.
Because of that, going with an experienced mountain guide who knows the area well and has good technical abilities will increase significantly your chances of success and safety.
In this 5-day course, you will prepare yourself for this climb and also for other similar climbs.
Acclimatization is a very important factor for climbing Mont Blanc. That’s why having extra days to let the body adapt to the thin air and low pressure is better and safer.
Ascending this peak has become a very popular activity, so it’s sometimes a bit crowded. However, it’s still an extraordinary experience that will open up different new perspectives for you.
I climbed Mont Blanc for my first time in 2007: it was my first adventure in the French Alps. Since then, I returned every year and climbed many other interesting routes, peaks ridges and couloirs in this area.
This programme also includes visiting as many areas as possible on this incredible mountain range. You can find the complete itinerary below this description.
Are you ready for an incredible adventure in Mont Blanc? Please, contact me if you’d like to join this trip or something similar. I’ll be happy to share my passion for climbing mountains with you.

My partner and I felt so safe with Mihnea. Mihnea was very professional and listened to how we were feeling during the entire time he was with us. He is very knowledgable about Mounteering. We decided not to attempt the summit due to bad weather a few days before and Mihnea tailored another plan for us which we had a great time doing. Mounteneering was very physically and mentally challenging and I am glad we got to spend time with Mihnea to learn more about techniques so maybe we can practice more and then one day attempt the summit again with Mihnea. This is a great trip!
Mihnea is an awesome guide. He is very knowledgeable, great company and everything you would want in a guide. If I come back or do another route I will try to get him again for sure. Thank you.
I think mont blanc and Chamonix is an amazing area to learn climbing skills and would recommend it. My guide was very skilled and took all safety precautions where necessary and had great days in the Alps. A couple of points I need to mention, It isn't made clear what accommodation is required and therefore was trying to book last minute which I found disrupting. The other thing is what your fee covers isn't made clear .I had to pay my guides lift fees which should be included in the fee, so be aware of what's covered before you register.
