Mont Blanc Ascent

Firstly may I just say I absolutely loved the Mont Blanc trip, and when talking to the other climbers who had gone with other agencies, our trip had the best mix of mountain huts, walks and training, so thank you, it really was superb.

The Way of St James - Aumont to Conques

Traverse the centuries of time and the borders of Europe on the medieval pilgrim trail of Compostela. In the 9th century, the tomb of the apostle St James was unearthed in Compostela. The site became the focus of a pilgrim trail beginning in France, and crossing northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. This journey, along the Via Podensis, the French Way of St James, takes pilgrims from Le Puy en Velay to the Pyrenees at St Jean Pied de Port. The route passes a multitude of churches and monasteries, resembling a travelling museum of Romanesque art. Six stages of this historic trail are included in our self-guided walking program in France.

traveller reviews

Well we are finally back in Melbourne and I can report that the trip you booked us through UTracks was terrific.

The scenery was great, the walking quite tough in parts but very enjoyable and the arrangements worked without any trouble at all.

Accommodation was good, the food mostly very nice and luggage transfers worked a treat.

Thanks to you and UTracks we had a very nice time.

Its our second trip through World Expeditions and both have been very well organised and stress free.
