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.

Pyrenees Snowshoe Week

Deep in the Pyrenees where wild valleys, frozen lakes and rolling ridge tops are in abundance, winter opens up a realm of opportunities for active adventurers. Away from its world class ski runs is a perfect wilderness ripe for exploration accessed by high mountain roads developed for the ski industry. From a comfortable base in the delightful town of Barèges at the base of the Tourmalet pass, the trip includes five days of guided snowshoeing, exploring the high passes, valleys and remote regions on foot with stunning views and the exhilaration that naturally comes with an alpine holiday in winter. At night experience the hospitality of your hosts with hearty mountain cuisine and the camaraderie that is all part of an adventure of this kind.
