Climbing Mont Blanc 

beginners program

Follow a certified mountain guide on this 6-day training and ascent of the iconic Mont Blanc in the French Alps, a truly spectacular mountain adventure!

Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, is located on the French-Italian border and boasts an altitude of 4810m. On this 6-day trip, we invite you to discover its unique surroundings.

 

We will spend the first 4 days acclimatizing to the conditions and altitude. This will give you time to prepare for the ascent on day 5. The preparation will start on the fabulous Glacier du Tour, which provides the perfect setting for acclimatizing. We will develop our mountaineering techniques during the first days.

 

On day 3, we will go to Petit Fourche at 3520m or Aiguille du Tour at 3542m and descend to Chamonix in order to rest. On the fourth day, we will spend the night at the hostel ‘le refuge de Tête Rousse’ at 3167m, from where we will begin our summit attack on the next morning. 

We will take the ‘Voie Normale du Goûter’ route and you will be well monitored throughout with a guide to participant ratio of 1:2. If weather conditions are not favorable, we will be able to try again on the 6th day.

From the summit of the iconic Mont Blanc, we will enjoy a 360° panoramic view over the surrounding mountains.

Regarding level, keep in mind that this trip is not for complete beginners and some mountaineering experience is required (for example mixed rock/snow conditions above 3000m). Also, you should have a good fitness level and be comfortable wearing a backpack.

Don't miss the opportunity to summit the highest mountain in the Alps! Book your place now and get ready for a unique climbing experience.
