Suitable for climbers of all levels this climb will become a unique challenge that will leave you with unforgettable memories
Seeing the cradle of the World’s mountaineering will become a unique and life altering experience
All of our guides are IFMGA certified professionals with lots of successful ascents on the record. Hearing their stories will become on of this tour’s highlights
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.
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!
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!
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%.
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!
In addition to standard medical insurance, we strongly recommend you to purchase specialized insurance for extreme sports. It is important that your insurance covers expenses related to the work of rescuers in the mountains (rescue work) using a rescue helicopter.
Climbers should be prepared to take care of themselves in cold environments. This means knowing how to control body temperature by hydrating well, wearing multiple layers of clothing to maintain body heat, and eating sufficiently (regularly throughout the day) to maintain strength.
Your guide will carry a first aid kit all the time during your climb. However, please bring your own medicine in case you need any of prescribed items.
Only IFMGA recognized mountain guides are allowed to take you to the summit of Mont Blanc. This is strictly controlled in the Alpine countries. Every other adventurer, instructor or mountain leader who guides on Mont Blanc can even be arrested on the mountain by the mountain police and rescuers.
The Goûter Route is usually reckoned as the easiest route up Mont Blanc, it is extremely popular with mountaineers. The Three Monts Route is interesting and diverse, as it passes through the peaks of Mont Blanc du Takul, Mont Maudit and Mont Blanc itself.
We recommend you to book your climb to Mont Blanc in advance as sometimes the Prefect of the Haute-Savoie imposes restrictions on the number of people that can ascent on one of Europe’s highest peaks.
