The ultimate mountaineering expedition and a once in a lifetime experience! At 4809m Mont Blanc is not only the highest peak in the Alps but is also the biggest mountain in Western Europe. However, with the right training and guidance it is an achievable summit for anyone with a good level of fitness and a strong will. Our 6 day climb Mont Blanc course will prepare you with all the skills you need to get to the summit and look out over one of the finest views in the world.
Towering over the peaks of the French, Italian and Swiss Alps, Mont Blanc actually borders both France and Italy. If you prefer to go off the beaten track, you can reach the summit of Mont Blanc via the lesser known Italian route. Slightly longer and more technical than the classic French route, with no support from lift systems, it is one for the alpine purists who are looking for a more traditional experience.
Explore this iconic multiday hike from Chamonix to Zermatt, passing through some of the most beautiful places in France and Switzerland along the way.

Both tours are fully guided and your luggage will be transported between hotels, leaving you with no more to think about than enjoying every moment.
