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.

High Pyrenees Explorer

The HRP 'Haute Route Pyrenean' (HRP), is a high-mountain trail, following the French-Spanish frontier across the wildest and most spectacular peaks and passes. The highest passes on the HRP are often snowy even in midsummer, and the going underfoot can be challenging, but the rewards are immeasurable. We offer three stages in consecutive week long trips, with stage three including an ascent of the mighty Pic Aneto (3404m), the highest peak in the Pyrenees. At night stay in simple mountain refuges, serving hearty cuisine and brimming with character.
