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.

Mont Blanc Rambler

Specially devised for walkers who like to 'smell the roses' en route to the next comfortable gte, this relaxed walk around Mont Blanc still takes in the vistas for which the Tour du Mont Blanc is so famous. In the company of a small group of like minded companions, a bilingual guide and a mule to carry your gear, the walk traverses high passes, meadows brimming with alpine flowers and wanders through typical mountain villages. There is ample time to stop and take in the stunning scenery, enjoy a picnic of local ingredients and absorb the alpine culture as you make your way to the next accommodation. This is relaxed alpine hiking at its best.

traveller reviews

Mont Blanc Rambler July 2015: It was a wonderful experience. The views and our photos were so beautiful at first they seemed unreal. Our guide Sebastien was excellent. He struck the perfect balance of giving us information that would be helpful and interesting then allowing us to enjoy the peace and beauty. The mix of people on the trip was interesting and fun. The food was delicious regional fare. The accomplishment of completing a challenging hike then arriving at a new place with a shower, a beer, and a soft bed was perfect. This would be a very reasonable trip to do solo. In the last couple years I have spent 10 days in Bora Bora and a week rafting the Grand Canyon. Mont Blanc is not only bucket list material like those, but a trip I would (and plan to) do again.
