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.

Highlights of the Pyrenees

Based in the traditional village of Barèges (1250m), discover the numerous trails through the Pyrenees National Park, including to the famous Cirque de Gavarnie, Pont d'Espagne and the Vignemale, above Cauterets. In the company of a qualified mountain guide, you will discover the history, language and culture of the region as well as the geology and bird life. The walks range from introductory (on our 'gentle' weeks) to more demanding ('intermediate' weeks) on alternate weeks throughout the walking season. Advanced walks include one or two nights in a mountain refuge.
