Trek & Climb Mont Blanc

Alpine Trekking Holiday with an ascent of Mont Blanc (14 days)...

This holiday is geared towards experienced winter hill walkers as opposed to hard core climbers. In 2005 despite difficult weather conditions we had a 100% success rate. This was again repeated in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

A full week of spectacular alpine trekking in the Mont Blanc area to get you fit and acclimatised for the second week when you will have your chance to climb the mighty Mont Blanc, the highest peak in western Europe at 4807 metres.

During the second week you'll be passed over to a highly experienced Mountain Guide (IFMGA) such as Jonathon Preston for further training and preparation for your ascent of Mont Blanc.

The cost for the trip is 1195 per person excluding accommodation or 1695 with half board accommodation and Geneva airport transfers. The trip will run for a minimum of two people.
