Climbing Mont Blanc in 5 days

The trip included a climb on Gran Paradiso and Mont Blanc by Italian guides. Prior to the trip, I had asked twice if my trip could be rescheduled to the following year because we had heard of safety concerns on Mont Blanc and my main climbing partner was not able to come so my wife was filling in (and she did not have experience climbing big mountains). I did not get a reply on those questions, so rather than lose the money entirely, we decided me must try. Long story short, she got altitude sickness on Gran Paradiso so Month Blanc was definitely out. PeaksHunter staff informed me that not only could I not get a refund (which is understandable), I could not reschedule the Mont Blanc portion to the following season (a question I had earlier asked and not been answered). If you are looking to climb Mont Blanc, I would highly suggest looking at French only guides, as there are a LOT of hidden fees with PeaksHunter and their policies are not at all customer friendly. To be fair, I should note that PeaksHunter showed excellent hospitality with scheduling rooms and alternate plans for us, but in the end, I paid for a climb on Mont Blanc, and even though PeaksHunter wanted to reschedule my climb by moving a couple of days for weather reasons, they refused to work with me on moving to the next season which I think is completely unreasonable. Last, I would like to say that our guide, Paolo was AMAZING in how he looked after my wife and got her safely off the mountain when she suffered from altitude sickness. I hope the company gave him some of the money they kept from refusing to reschedule my Mont Blanc portion of the climb.

6-day Mont Blanc ascent with acclimatization

We spent a perfect week with Stephane in Chamonix. The 3 days acclimatization in the beginning are physically rather less demanding, but seemed very important to learn and deepen mountain climbing techniques as well as getting used to the altitude and to each other. The climb itself is very demanding, though. We started from the town of Bionnassay to the Tete Rousse Hut (1800 meters in altitude) on day 1, continued to the summit of Mont Blanc on day 2 (YES, we made it!) and returned to Tete Rousse Hut on day 2 (1800 meters up and down) and down to Bionnassay on day 3. Stephane made an outstanding job in keeping us going and motivated - and of course, high mountain trekking is exhausting and physically and mentally challenging. One should be aware of that before thinking of ascending Mont Blanc. We saw many other groups that were not well prepared and had difficulties during the trip. The 6 day itinerary gives the chance of evaluating one's capacities before starting the ascent. I would definitely recommend as well the trip as the guide Stephane Comte! Thank you!

We are so happy we got the chance to have a guided session at Fontainebleau with the E-S Guide team. They were super helpful and responsive, getting me and my climbing partner set up with a trip with <48 hours turnaround from first contact. We worked with Jèrèmie, who was top notch - he knew the area really well and was able to guide both of us to top multiple routes. He met us where we were at with our climbing ability, and was extremely creative at suggesting alternative beta and helping us through problems. THANK YOU!

With the huts on Mont Blanc closed and climbing suspended Peakshunter reworked our trip very quickly and swapped Mont Blanc with a program on Monte Rosa. With K suffering from altitude sickness on GP the Guide was brilliant in slowing the pace for her to make two summits on Monte Rosa and rather than risk problems by going higher on the last day rearranged the programme again and arranged a brilliant day on the Aiguille Marbrees. Thank you!

Communication with our guide, Claire, was super easy (via WhatsApp). We met her at the arranged meeting place and she showed us a great range of appropriate climbing spots. Her recommendations were exactly as we had requested (beginner and intermediate). Claire was informative, encouraging and patient, and her manner/teaching style really made for an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.‘I couldn’t recommend the service, or Claire, highly enough.

Carlos was guiding us very well in the mountains and he knew perfectly, what he was doing on rock or on ice.

Half-Day Bouldering in Fontainebleau, near Paris

We had a great experience with our guide, Leo. He arrived on time, picked us up at the train at station and drove us to the climbing spot. Leo is very friendly, introduced to us the history of the town along our ride. He is a great climber. My 15 year old is an experienced indoor climber. He had such a great time with Leo and learned a lot also. I would highly recommend Leo for anyone who wants to try climbing at Fontainebleau. The only reason I rated 4 on service is because I found out the last minute change in the guide after I sent an email inquiring/confirming our meeting time and place before we left home for Paris. I wasn’t sure how I might have found out it’ll I didn’t proactively send a message. To be fair, Ivan responded to my email quickly and the next day I heard from Leo. I emailed Leo when we landed in Paris and connected on What’s App. At the end of the day, it all worked out great! We loved the service, and Leo is an excellent climbing guide!!!

Kyriakos was very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and attentive. I really enjoyed having him guide me up the mountain. He was more than willing to share information and answer questions that I had, and he did a good job steering me toward a route that met my personal needs/goals. I couldn’t recommend him more highly!

6-day Mont Blanc ascent with acclimatization

Dear Sir I am very disappointed to say that I am appalled by your guide and his service. The first 3 days he was excellent and trained us well. Once we got in the mountain everything changed. He didn’t bother to check our bags which ended up with us carrying 8/9 KG’s overweight. Not only till another guide asked him why my bag was so big did he realize that it was a good idea to check. Not very professional. Then instead of been on the mountain 3 nights (as planned) he ran us up and down in 2 nights (3 days). Because of a storm on the second day, we did not summit. The next day the weather was better and if he had stuck to the plan, we would have made it. On summit day he kept shouting at my son (in front of a lot of people) just because my son took a few minutes more to get ready. He shortened our time on the mountain by one night just so he could get too the next client. On the 5th we were supposed to decent from Tette Rousse to the train. He was already with the next couple. At one stage I wanted to walk with 2 poles, he didn’t let me. (many other people used 2 poles) The only thing that interested him was breaking records for going up and down. I felt like I was in army basic training. I am 56 years old. On the last day from Tette Rousse to the train, he ran down so fast that the last 15 minutes on the mountain we were alone (he was at the train station) I trusted him and got scammed. In short, I already have a 4 team trip for next year, but because I cannot trust you or your guide I am forced to use a another company. I will not either be able to recommend your company to others either. Pity, it cost me a lot of money. And I believe you owe me on day fee, as we spent 2 nights on the mountain and not 3. Very disappointing

Climbing Mont Blanc in 5 days

Had a fine trip to Grand Paradiso with guide Elis from Peaks Hunters. The speed were quite high but good to be tested before mont blanc. Elis and us self evaluated that the succesrate to summit MB would be low so eighter an alternative climb or convert the trip for next year at French side. I understood we could convert the tour and get an voucher to be used next year. Contacted Silvia as well day after to comfirm that if we could get a voucer we then would like to cancel. Silvia agreed to send voucer day after. Now to day they unfortunately reply to the cancellation policy (no refund ). A very disappointing turn around, in that case we would ofcause have taken an alternative tour now when we had vacation. Br Jesper Pedersen

3-day Mont Blanc ascent with acclimatization

Had a Wonderful Time in the french alps. However, the down side of it, is that I did not make it to the summit because of the weather, and had to make a U-turn from 4,400m altitude, just 1-2h away from the summit. Now after the first try, I think this can be organised differently so the chance for the summit is twofold or even three fold. How can it be done differently? Acclimatisation can start at Tete Rouse refuge with overnight stay plus two nights at Goutter refuge. If done this way the chance of making it to the Mont Blanc summit increases. You have a bad weather one morning, but you try it from 12noon & have plenty of time as you'll slip at Goutter. If all day has bad weather you try again next morning...

Unfortunately the guide did not speak English fluently enough for us to have a good constructive dialog. We got more information from listening in on other guides when they informed their clients. It halted our possibility to plan and adjust our trip underway. The dialog between us, Explore-share and PeaksHunter was at times confusing and created some uncertainties regarding responsibility, payments and information. We will in the future try to go directly to a provider instead of going through a third party.

Fabrice was a wonderful guide who was very knowledgable about the area - from geography, history to the animals and plants we saw on our hike, he had a story to tell for all of them! He was incredibly nice to drive us to the mountains and back our Airbnb (only around 1.5 hours into the mountain) and the hike that we settled on was perfect - we saw multiple groups of ibexes and chamois, took in the wonderful Alps scenery and ended our hike at a beautiful alpine lake. I can’t recommend the experience more since it added so much to our trip in the Riviera, it was a truly differentiated experience. Would definitely be back again.

He pointed out great photo opportunities, so we managed to take plenty of nicely-framed photos on our smartphones. Fabrice also introduced us to the game of pétanque and thanks to him, we were able to understand and appreciate the games as they were being played by the locals during our trip.

Half-day sport climbing trip in southern France (Calanques de Marseille, Sainte Baume, Garlaban)

Guide was relatively helpful when planning, but we needed to reschedule due to rain, he stopped responding completely to email or text. Day of the climb, I kept messaging and trying to call him, but he blocked me? Very confusing. I'm sure he's probably a good climbing guide (we never ended up climbing with him), but his responsiveness was pretty unprofessional. We ended up finding some hikes to do in calanques and climbing at the local gym 🤷‍♂️ Guillaume’s answer - “Hello, thank you for your message. I’m sorry that we couldn’t make this outing because of the rain and then your schedule. Know that I didn’t block you but when we are active in the Calanques we don’t necessarily have a network.”

We had a thoroughly enjoyable trip. Thank you!

Andre was an outstanding guide and I really enjoyed my glacier adventure! It was really amazing to be in the mountains where we were the only tracks in the snow. In addition to planning a trip that was beautiful and at the perfect difficulty level, he gave me pointers to improve my skiing and backcountry skills. I would definitely book another trip if I come back!

Megeve, French Alps, Guided Ski Touring

First of all, I want to say that we were guided only one day by Stephane Combe. I have been ski touring for more than 20 years and never without a guide. What I like about the process is the proximity to calm nature, the sporty aspect and the adrenaline that comes with it from time to time. My best outings were those where trust with my guide was total. I rarely do reviews on sites but it seems important to me today to do so as the experience with Stephane Combe was unpleasant. As a customer, I did not feel listened to. To make him agree to propose a program different from the one he wanted to do personally was energy-intensive. Then he chose a blown descent to the west to descend at noon. Obviously the snow was not transformed. We arrived downstairs at 1.30pm to be told the day was over. He apparently wasn't there to work full days. In 20 years of experience, I have never seen such a selfish, egocentric, self-centered guide, swearing at anything he doesn't like. A very unpleasant character that I do not advise anyone to meet.

La Vallée Blanche Guided Ski Tour

This was, hands down, one of the coolest and most difficult outdoor experiences I have ever had. It was visually stunning. The ancient mountains that surround you on the Vallee Blanche are absolutely breathtaking, but there is good reason to be cautious. Do not ride the Vallee Blanche without a dedicated and experienced guide. You must be in very good physical condition to take this trip on a snowboard- skiing is a bit easier because you can traverse flat land better. You must be able to handle rugged terrain, and have pinpoint accuracy to cross ice bridges between crevices. Altitude, deep snow, unexpected weather and massive crevices are just a few serious hazards that require true alpine expertise. Our guide, Paulo, and his team were incredible. They were knowledgeable, friendly, and their communication skills were impeccable. The day that we were suppose to ride the valley turned out to be dangerously cold and windy but our guide was on top of the weather the entire time. We changed our original go-date to another one with safer conditions. As someone with a little bit of climbing experience, I truly appreciated our guides priority on safety & weather conditions; trust me, you wouldn’t want to be on Europe’s highest summit in the middle of a storm. We wound up going the next day after the storm. The powder was so deep that it was impassable on a snowboard at some points. The ski poles that we rented to traverse flat land, sunk all the way down into the powder, and there was no resistance to push yourself forward. On several occasions, our guide had to attach a rope to my harness and pull me out of a powder-jam. Paulo guided us safely down the mountain, taking breaks to rest and for water and food. At the bottom, we grabbed a few beers and nothing ever tasted so good. Hire these guys, you will be thankful that you did!!!

La Grave and Serre Chevalier 6-day ski touring initiation

The Guide did not even know I'am on splitboard. Everyone else was on skis, I was the only one on board. Guide has no experience on board, so the daily trips was designed for skiers, not borders. I would like to know which company is responsible putting me in a ski group, Azimut or Explore-Share? If you don't know the difference between what is doable with skis and splitboards, you would not sell trips for splitboarders! In the only day I could enjoy somehow, I did very hard time to stay on my feet on icy steeps, because I should have had a crampon, but I did not have it, because the list of necessary equipment does not mention it. All the skiers had one. The guide anyway did what he could to help me, all the respect for Rafael. But the whole trip was a fuckup for me that way. I really want to know who is responsible!?

The day that we hiked, was cloudy and cool at the higher elevations so he selected alternate routes that provided us with spectacular views of the mountain valleys that make up the park as well as a tour of Sospel a fascinating village that was part of the salt trade. The scenery is definitely worth the hike and Fabrice is a great guide and a pleasure to be with.

Hi, good service from explore share and peaks hunter, only some miscommunication on 2 or 3 days program, due to bad communication between you both. The guide was OK, friendly although non very experienced in the practice of pédagogie and communication, especially before couloir des Goûter s, there can be better briefing on security and also in general on the whole expedition. But he can grow by learning some coaching lessons. We did not do the final ascension due to bad weather, a proposal and financial compensation for 2nd attempt would have been welcome.6/10.can do better.

Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route

As I wrote before (check the emails) there was a problem in communication between the square (client, explore share, peaks hunters and the guide) after I booked the mont blanc in 2 days I thought that it would be a good idea to do also an acclimatization day. I send 2-3 emails to explore share I text in what's app about that and they replied after 2-3 days... The automated text from what's app was disappointing and made me angry because I asked something and I got the reply would you like to ask something... Also by email they asked me about my experience which I had send like 1 month ago about the other trip... Finally I canceled the acclimatization day because of that and I feel sorry for peaks hunters because they have already booked a guide... I am not sure if I would recommend explore share to anyone.... Instead of being cool and relaxed I was feeling nervous checking my phone for an apply during my vocation... NO!

If you have no experience on higher mountains and in climbing in general, there is no place for you on mt blanc. train hard, prepare and come with the right expectation!

I don’t usually write reviews, but I gladly do for this trip because it was fantastic! Great guide, fantastic tour! The accommodation is really basic, that is just something to be aware of. The only point to not give a 5 star trip rating is the fact that the group size being twice as large as was promised, it made for a 14 person mixed dormitory the first night- and thus no sleep.

Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route

My friend and I had a great time summiting Mt Blanc! The guide was great and very supportive and flexible the whole time. A couple of things to consider 1. Make sure you leave at least 1 day available after your trip in case you need to move the dates around, we almost didn't make it due to bad weather but were able to be flexible. There are lots of fun things to do in Chamonix if you don't need the day. 2. The packing list needs some improvement especially to consider females - I would bring an extra layer just in case, thicker socks for summit day, ski goggles, hand warmers, very thick gloves, maybe even a foil blanket. Make sure you bring a thermos not a water bladder as it will freeze (we made this mistake!)

North Faces of the Alps guided 4-day training program

Enrico is a mountaineering expert. I did many tours, summits and expeditions with him over the past 15 years Not only does he know the environment, but he is also technically very proficient, which is very comforting when the going gets tougher. He is a very safe guide, does not take chances as he wants both of us to get back home safely! And he likes to share and explain every decision he makes. Every outing with Enrico is a 5 star experience.

Vallée Blanche guided off-piste skiing day

This was absolutely the best day of our 7 day ski trip to Chamonix. It wouldn’t be the same without our guide Daniel who made us feel comfortable, welcome and most of all, safe. From the start to finish everything was perfectly planned and adjusted to our possibilities. It was not just skiing, there were times when genuine knowledge and skills were needed and Daniel showed his best. Nevertheless, he’s a kind of person you’d like to be friends with. While reading reviews about Vallée Blanche, I’ve noticed that some described this descent as a piece of cake, but in reality you should evaluate your fitness and skiing possibilities with your guide first. All in all, the scenery is spectacular, the whole experience unique and totally worth the money. Thank you Gauthier for smooth and proper communication before the experience! And thank you Daniel for everything!

Daniel was an excellent guide. He took my son to some places we would have never have gone and was able to find powder and some skiing terrain that he would not have found in the northeastern US where he typically skiis. Daniel's knowledge of the mountain was terrific. He worked with my 15 year-old as best as he could to get him comfortable with a stranger to the point where they communicated openly and shared personal stories. Daniel also made positive comments about my son's skiing abilities and about his conditioning which were encouraging. They seemed to really connect on a passion for skiing and my son's desire to return again to take on even more challenges with Daniel are strong. We highly recommend him.

Kyriakos was awesome! Very knowledgeable but didn’t push or feel like a lesson. If we asked a question he’d answer but we never felt like he was trying to teach. I was extremely happy with how we saw every other “group” going down more or less the same route and he brought us over to a spot that was untouched.

I had a great day out in a safe but somewhat challenging environment. I would recommend Gauthier and his team to anyone looking for a safe but adventurous day out in Chamonix.

They provided me with all the information I requested and more. Scheduling was clear and everything went as it was planned. My guide, Luigi Gagliardi, is a highly skilled professional. He did a great job taking me to the summit, providing me with all instructions and taking a great care of me. I learnt a lot from him. He is also a great person.

1-day Hiking Fenestre Lake and Pass in Mercantour National Park

We had an amazing trip, we wanted to explore the Mercantour region, reconnect with nature, and spend quality time as a couple. Fabrice understood the brief, was clear in his guidelines to prepare the trip, proposed different options, and, ultimately, adapted the hikes on a day to day basis based on the weather. For example, instead of having us hike all day in the mountains in pouring rain on the first day, he adapted the program and took us for a hike all around Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat along the riviera coast. The hikes were stunning, especially at this time of the year (fall) with amazing lights and colors. We highly recommend Fabrice as a guide, he is very knowledgeable on the fauna&amp;flora, local history, on wolves. He also initiated us to some key principles of Nordic walking and mindful walking. Thanks Explore &amp; Share team for connecting us. We definitely will do it again and recommend to friends.

Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route

It started good, everything felt great all the way to Tete Rousse Hut were we did sleep. We was not tired after the walk. When we arrived I did pay again for as stayng there even though I did know that I already done it. That whas both me and the guide fault. Because he did tell me to pay and some part of me then though that; if they dont think I have paid, maby I haven't. Insted of showing them the mail I got. Did not get a recipt either so thats 200€ I will never see again I know. At 2 in the night at breakfast I was very exited about moving on. But at the table over guide teld us that it not was a good idea for as to try to take the top. I was very surprised about this. Because everyting felt so good the first day. He told us just because we did not have a reservation at Gouter hut he did not want as to walk down the 80m wall the same day. But way we did not get the chance to show what we can do I wonder? I guess he thought that we had to little experience and he did not want to take the risk. Still I did enjoy the ~24 hours up there and I did learn how to climb mont blanc. We want to try it again but next time we are quite sure we will hike it in 3 days and no guide so we can try it on over ones.

We spent a day hiking with guide Fabrice in Mecantaur Park. It was a great hike with different levels of difficulty. We rested at the lake at around 2000 meters and then made our way to the mountain pass high above. We were rewarded with a lot of wildlife sightings and even a patch of snow in August. Patrice was great and gave us a lot of information about the area and the flora and fauna. He was also great at pointing out historical events that took place in the area in the past.

Mont Blanc 10-day guided hiking tour

10 day / 9 night Full TMB Tour Congratulations, you found it! The best TMB trekking operator in all the land! No seriously, book it now! My time with Happy Tracks was absolutely exceptional and I wouldn’t hesitate to book another trek through this company or recommend it to all my family &amp; friends. From pick up to drop off - everything was meticulously taken care of by Anja &amp; Raphael. We were treated to delicious homemade food, fantastic lodging, and off-the-beaten-path adventures every single day. Our guide Dave was fantastic - quite literally a world-class guide. His expertise &amp; character made for a super fun (and super safe) holiday. He went above and beyond to have us taste local delicacies and see parts of the TMB that would be easily missed by the average hiker. The TMB is a challenging hike, but the support of the Happy Tracks team made it one of my most cherished memories. Well done guys! Hope to trek with you again sometime!!

3-day Mont Blanc ascent with acclimatization

The guide is friendly and attention to safety. But the arrangement of such time and place is not suitable for us. The first day took the cable car at 1:30 PM and then take the train, stay in Tête Rousse refuge, only spend 5 hours total. And midnight at 2:00 Am started to climb to the summit and straightly back to the train station to catch the train at 5 Pm. It would take 15 hours. The physical strength of the two days was too unbalanced. In fact, I would not have these problems If we stayed in the Gouter refuge on the first day. My husband and I knew that will be a big test for us, but it doesn't mean we want to give up the climb to the summit. The uncomfortable thing is, The guide asked to go back even we didn't see the Mont Blanc. I am very upset, but the guide insists that I don't have a way to resist. My husband and I just slowly walk with disappointment. At 9 Am we arrived at Tête Rousse refuge, and slowly took a meal, slowly descended the mountain, and arrived at the train station at 1 o'clock, not 5 pm. We spent time and money to climb our dream Mountain, but this is the result, very dissatisfied of.

Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route

A great and wonderful journey. The contact with Peaks Hunter and their guide Alberto was perfect. Despite no one has been able to reach the summit of Mont Blanc by this way during the last 3 days before our climb, Alberto has succeed to open the way to give us the opportunity to reach the summit. Very versatile, experienced and funny it has been a pleasure to climb the Mont Blanc by this route with Alberto during those two days. Wilder and and less crowded than the Gouter route, if you are well trained and not afraid by some snow/ice walls it is a great adventure, gorgeous landscapes. I recommend to descend by the Goûter Route, a bit longer in distance but shorter in duration and less complex. you will get the chance to see new landscapes and to view from where you have started in the morning. Great journey, thank you Peaks Hunter !

Private horseback riding tour in the Chamonix Valley, France (2 hours)

I had several private classes and a trail ride booked with Christophe Andre. I ride western and was very happy with several days riding instructions for English style riding. The facility is spectacular has open and covered arenas and position between Glacier de Bossons and alpine meadows. Christophe has horses for every level of rider from the novice to experience. All riding gear is of very good quality and saddles/ pads and blankets are in impeccable shape. The trail ride is suitable for riders of all levels, there’s a opportunity to trot and do galloping if a composition of the group permits. I recommend a private tour, so you will not be limited by the ability of others. Trail goes up to the mountains, across the river, alongside of the glacier into the lash forest. Christophe is very fun, light and very knowledgeable instructor. Spectacular rider himself he was very patient with my novice to the riding friend and was very attentive to all our needs during the 3 hrs adventure. I would definitely come next year again with my family!

Mont Blanc is a beautiful climb, due to a tight schedule a 2 day was the only option for me and while we summited the mountain it felt like we lucked out with a clear weather window. My guide, Mihnea was great! He looked after all the details and offered guidance with my basic mountaineering skills. I would definitely go climbing with him again and would recommend him to anyone!

Mont Blanc 10-day guided hiking tour

We are a group of 5 people from Hong Kong and booked a 10 trekking days + 1 rest day TMB Private Tour from Happy Tracks. We searched around a few companies which offer private tours in parallel but Raphael from Happy Tracks replied the quickest with the details we needed. We had a nice impression from them already. We chose to stay at hotels as much as possible instead of refuges and we were very satisfied about their arrangements, it felt good to relax and recharge in hotels after a whole-day trekking. Our guide, Dave, is a very experienced, resourceful, knowledgeable gentleman with a sense of humor. Dave gave us a very accurate weather forecast which prepared us mentally and physically and adjusted our route according to weather condition. Occasionally, we were off TMB route which became highlight of the day. The homemade lunch prepared by Rachel is definitely a bonus. They were in great varieties, delicious, and even including desserts! (we thought we would have dry sandwiches only for everyday). We would recommend everyone to book with Happy Tracks for TMB Tour if you would like a stress-free planning for the tour with good value for money.

Mont Blanc 10-day guided hiking tour

We have hiked many places in the world--Kilimanjaro, Peru, the Himalayas, the Nepali coast, Yosemite, Mt. Whitney, the Sierras----and the Swiss Alps rival each of those with their own unique beauty! Raphael, the Happy Tracks owner, responded to all of our emails and requests promptly and thoroughly and worked diligently to solve issues as they arose, such as an injured guide and fellow trekkers who needed some route changes. The accommodations along the Haute Route were excellent--ranging from dormitory-style, to camping lodges, to beautiful hotels. Meals were typically great (even had rabbit one night, duck the next, and nothing beat the gourmet meal Anja prepared at the Le Peuty Refuge!). Our guide, Wendy, was likewise excellent and attentive and we learned a lot about Swiss flora and fauna along the way. The Haute Route is strenuous in terms of being able to hike long days, with very steep and long periods of ascent and descent (the Swiss are not big on switchbacks) and needing to have no fear of heights (luckily we both do not have that issue) because you need to be willing to walk along steep, exposed ledges (and not always with a cable). It was also helpful that we both had at least some bouldering and scrambling experience; conditions along this trail are subject to erosion and major detours due to the many landslides, rockslides, and avalanches. All that said, Wendy guided us through calmly and we were rewarded by incredible views and experiences. Can highly recommend Happy Tracks!

Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route

We had a great trip and it was an epic challenge but we only made it to 4400metres which is 400metres from the summit when we had to turn around as I became sick with altitude and needed to get down safely. So had to abandon our summit attempt. Gigio was a super guide and looked after us very well and got me as far as I could go but in the end the best decision was to come back down to a safe altitude and feel good again &nbsp; We had an amazing trip and are not deterred from possibly trying it again someday but will look to acclimatise for longer next time &nbsp; Thanks for organising our fantastic guide and tell him a big thank you from us &nbsp;

Mercantour National Park, France, Guided Hiking Lakes Adventure

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our hike to Mercantour National Park. Fabrice was entertaining and knowledgeable, and helpful. He arranged for our pickup from our hotel at Nice, and even drove us to a village bakery to pack a Provençal sandwich for our picnic at the top of the mountains. Fabrice shared with us a lot of information about the place’s landscape, flora and fauna. And he also showed us how to spot the wildlife and take pictures of the animals. We learnt that he’s also an avid photographer and has extensive experience in nature photography. The highlight of our trip was reaching the crystal clear mountain lake, close to the top of the mountain range, where we also got to cross the border from France into Italy for our picnic. The only regret we have is not being able to spend more time in the park, as the hike took most of the day. We will definitely be interested in doing this again! Thanks for the arrangement!

Mont Blanc 10-day guided hiking tour

Raphael and Anja did an amazing part with our group that had a lot of moving parts - which only got more complicated as the trip progressed. Their support didn't end until we left the country. We had two people joining us part way through the trek. Their flight was delayed getting out of the U.S. and Raphael had everything rebooked so that it was seamless when they landed. One of our members was sick and Raphael was readily available on WhatsApp to help us navigate a transfer. Our accommodations were wonderful and luggage transfer was perfect (and when they were stuck in traffic we got a text advising us they'd be late). Raphael showed up in person for a map review the night before we started hiking - and we met Anja along the way. What a dynamic duo. We can't wait to start planning our next adventure with them at the helm!

Our group consisted of mostly 55-65 aged individuals, and we requested private lodging for the trip. The logistics were perfect, with assistance from Geneva to Chamonix. Our guides, Raphael and Jack, always looked out for our safety during snow and water crossings, and provided for our comfort throughout the hikes. Our evenings were excellent and the meals at local hotels and restaurants were excellent. I highly recommend Happy Tracks for their skill, preparation and planning, and friendliness.

North Faces of the Alps guided 4-day training program

Getting in contact through explore-share.com with Enrico Bonino, mountain guide, was really a snap. Some time later I got in contact over phone/mail with Enrico. Finally we found a time window in February to go ice climbing for 2 days in Chamonix. 850 km and a night later I found myself on the Italian side of the Mt Blanc in Courmayeur. Enrico took us to the traverse of the Aiguilles d'Entrèves. Not very difficult but perfect to acquaint myself again with granite and mixed climbing after a lapse of ... +20 years. The weather was brilliant, blue skies, sun all over and the scenery was +++, pure enjoyment ! The next day the weather was grey and some snow was forecasted. So Enrico took me to Cogne where we climbed the 7 lengths of Ghost Goully. Not a pure icefall, it has some mixed, more mountain-like, character. After hiking back to the village Enrico took me to his favourite pub where we had a tasty piece of pizza and pastry. A Short trip but just what I needed to get some feeling climbing with crampons and ice axes again. This is definitely asking for more and I'm looking forward to the next trip ! Thank you Enrico, Bruno

Stephane was injured so arranged an alternative guide who was very good. When I booked the trip it was to do the Vallée Blanche. After I made the booking it was suggested that if that trip was not possible, we would do off-piste skiing in Megeve (where we were staying). The day was very good but it would have been better if I had been told before confirming my booking that the chances of doing the Vallée Blanch at that time of year were very low.

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.

Jessy nous a emmené dans différents endroits magnifiques, où nous avons pu profiter d’une excellente neige et ce, alors que les conditions d’enneigement étaient franchement défavorables (il n’avait plus neigé depuis plus d’un mois). Jessy prend une juste place dans un groupe où il s’y mêle très spontanément, sans être invasif et en nous laissant profiter de certains moments entre nous. Il semblait manifestement animé par le souhait de faire vivre à ses clients une belle expérience ! Je le recommande très vivement. Charles

Ski touring and Freeride skiing in Les 3 Vallées

J'ai fait 2 jours avec Jessy et j'ai vraiment beaucoup apprécié son rapport avec le groupe et le choix des randonnées à ski. Il arrive bien à estimer la force du groupe, à satisfaire les plus expérimentés et à soutenir les moins aguerris. Toujours là au bon moment et en même temps pas intrusif. Il porte de l'attention à chacun et prends même des photos spontanément pour nous les envoyer en fin de journée. Quelqu'un de souriant et enthousiaste qui prend du plaisir à partager sa passion! Je le recommande vivement. Jean Phi

La Grave and Alpe d’Huez freeride skiing

The conditions were hard, a lot of wind and some cloud layers downside. Quentin managed to keep the group together and drove us trough deep powder on the lower parts of Alpe d'huez since La Grave was closed. It is an excellent guide with huge human skills ! We loved our journey with Quentin and are sure we will ride together again soon

Mont Blanc 10-day guided hiking tour

Did the Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB) with Happy Tracks. If ever you look for hiking or snowshoeing guides around Mont Blanc, can fully recommend them. They still did the 10-day tour with me even though all other customers pulled out – MANY THANKS!!


 

There are many reasons for choosing France

The French Alps are an invitation to explore the outdoors in all possible ways. The charming town of Chamonix, lying at the foot of the Mont Blanc massif and the Aiguille du Midi, makes a great starting point. To the south, three stunning national parks ‒Vanoise, Ecrins and Mercantour‒ allure hikers and nature lovers from all around the world.

 

Good to know:

Country Code:

+33

Language:

French

Currency:

Euro (EUR)

Best time to visit:

France can be visited all-year-round. During spring (April-June) and fall (September-November) you’ll find less tourists, lower prices and mild temperatures. Summer (especially July) is very crowded. The ski season in the French Alps runs from December to April

What’s the weather like?

Weather varies greatly between regions: the northern cities and mountain towns have very cold winters (with heavy snowfalls on the mountains) and warm summers; while the coastal cities by the Mediterranean enjoy mild temperatures almost all year and very hot days during the summer season

Getting there

Most of the world’s major airlines have direct flights to Paris. Other important regional airports include Lyon, Nice, Marseille and Toulouse. France is well-connected to many European cities by train, bus or ferry. If you are traveling to the French Alps, the closest airports are Geneva (in Switzerland, near the French border), Grenoble and Chámbery. To explore the French Riviera, the best gateway is Nice

More info about France:

France is the largest country in Western Europe. Incredibly diverse, a trip to the country allows many possible itineraries. The glaciated peaks of the French Alps are the perfect scenery for all types of mountain activities, while visiting the wine regions of Champagne and Bordeaux makes for a singular experience. To the south, the French Riviera allures travelers with sun-drenched beaches and the island of Corsica, tucked in the Mediterranean Sea, provides endless options for hikers and explorers alike, including the most challenging hiking route in Europe: the GR20. When it comes to cities, the big favorite is always Paris: a major tourist destination featuring some of the world’s most iconic historical sites, museums, architecture and cuisine
