Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Western Europe, is without a doubt one of the most famous mountains in the world, the cradle of Mountaineering. The first recorded ascent was done here in Chamonix by two mountaineers - Jacques Balmat and Michel-Gabriel Paccard in August of 1786. Since then Mont Blanc has become one of the most popular destinations among alpinists.

Although this is not technically the most complicated ascent, you will still face some difficulties due to Mont Blanc’s height and the need to move along the glacier and difficult terrain. This climb will come as a good test of your skills, but will turn out to be an unforgettable experience, which you will remember and talk about for a very long time.

Testimonials

Rachel, USA

We went with Valery to Mont Blanc in mid-July 2019. It was planned to climb from the Italian side, but the weather and the condition of the glacier did not contribute to the ascent and the route was replayed on the go. Highly recommend this competent, calm and friendly guide. Thank you very much for this experience!

Phill, Ireland

My family had a wonderful time. It was their first big mountian. This is not a casual excursion, you must be in a very good condition. A great introduction to a demaning sport!

Laura, Romania

Amazing! Valery is the best local guide you can find in the area. We climbed with hi, via Gouter Route and it was a one in a lifetime experience. I would recommend him 100%.

Christian, Spain

This trip was amazing. Mont Blanc is so beautiful and our guide Valery was beyond helpful. This is so great to have an opportunity to listen to this man's stories about his various ascents. Thank you!
