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.

Haute Route & Mont Blanc

One of the greatest alpine journeys, the Haute Route, stretches from Chamonix in the French Alps to Zermatt, in the Swiss Alps. On this tour we venture off the main trails into the heart of the alps, trekking across glaciers with magnificent mountain backdrops such as the Matterhorn. Combined with a climb of Mont Blanc, this itinerary should more than satisfy the aspiring mountaineer. To join you will need a very good level of fitness and good walking and scrambling experience. Previous mountaineering is an advantage, however not essential.
