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 by Bike

The Haute Route is one of the most famous walks in the European Alps and recently this famous trail has developed into one of the most rewarding mountain bike trails in the world. Setting out under the stunning shadow of Mont Blanc above Chamonix, we ride through the heart of the alps crossing high alpine passes at altitudes of over 2500m including Pas de Lona, Basset de Lona and Illsee Pass. The well maintained Swiss single tracks offer outstanding riding as we appreciate the breathtaking alpine summits and glaciers surrounding us. The fantastic final descent into Zermatt takes us underneath the stunning and unforgettable Matterhorn - the most recognisable peak in the Swiss Alps. This makes a fitting end to a superb mountain bike tour.
