Description

Join me for a 4-day Guided Tour of the spectacular Trient Glacier in the famous Alps Mountain Range.

This tour will take you through several beautiful parts of the famed Alps. It will also span two countries, France and Switzerland. However, the real highlight is the Trient Glacier. Over 4 km long with an area of over 6 km, seeing this enormous glacier is something you won’t forget. And you will not just be seeing this amazing glacier either. Instead, on the third day of the tour, you will be trekking over it.

Perfect for Beginners, this trip does Not Require Previous Climbing Experience. The hikes range from 3-5 hours, but are not too strenuous.

Over the course of those hikes, you will so many amazing things, you’ll be shocked that you were able to do it in only 4 days. From the Chalet des Grands to the Col du Tour, where you will see the incredible Mont Blanc Mountain (4,810m), the Highest Mountain in the Alps. You will also get to see the many peaks surrounding the famous Chamonix, such as the Aiguille du Midi (3,842m). After that, we cross the Plateau du Trient that offers unmatched views of nature’s magnificence. Finally, on the last day, after leaving the wonderful Cabane du Trient, we will climb the Pointe d’Orny and admire the sunrise, before making our descent to Champex.

So let me guide you on this amazing 4-day tour that offers some of the best views of the Alps one can see, highlighted by the spectacular Trient Glacier.

I’ll be awaiting your message.

And if you would like to join me on a Guided Rock-Climbing Day Tour on one of the many different ridges, walls, peaks and pillars in the Alps, you can do so here.

As a child, I spent my summer in the Alps and that is where my passion for the mountains was born. I became a certified mountain guide in the year 2000. I specialize in rock climbing, skiing and snowboarding. For me, it is a great pleasure to share my knowledge of the mountains with my clients and to help them improve. During my free time, I like to go hiking and snowboarding with my wife and my 3 children.
