Description

Follow me for an incredible adventure ascending Western Europe’s highest peak and paragliding down on the way back. During the 7 days of this tour, we’ll enjoy paralpinism in Mont Blanc and its surroundings.

We’ll meet at Chamonix and begin this unforgettable adventure. In order to make the most of the ascent, I’ve planned some acclimatization climbs to Tête Blanche (3,429 m) and Aiguille du Tour (3,542 m). You can review the itinerary below for a more detailed description of what we’ll be doing each day. Nonetheless, the itinerary may change depending on weather conditions. Also, if you are too tired or would prefer to descend through the glaciers, the paragliding portion of the trip can be altered.

This trip is for participants with experience in mountaineering that know how to use crampons and an ice axe, particularly for those that have already done some previous mountaineering course. Additionally, it is also necessary that participants be in a good physical condition since we’ll be covering long distances every day.

Book your trip now and discover this dazzling iconic mountain in the French Alps like never before.

I also offer a paralpinism adventure in Sierra de Guadarrama, Spain. Be sure to check it out!
