We run the Mont Blanc Ascent as an open or bespoke event over 8 days and 7 nights with 6 trekking/climbing days. To book any number of participants onto an event, simply select the date in the calendar and follow the booking procedure.
Weather conditions allow us to run this trip from early June to mid September.
Mont Blanc huts book up very quickly, therefore, we advise that you book your Mont Blanc Ascent as soon as possible to enable us to secure huts and avoid the risk of beds being unavailable for your dates.
I have never climbed before but I would like to climb Mont Blanc
You’re not the only one! And why not? Why set yourself limits? Every year, people ask us this question. ‘Back in the day’ people would complete an ‘alpine apprenticeship’ which would consist of many alpine summers spent practising their skills and climber lower, but not lesser, peaks before tackling the big one. People have less time (seemingly, although there are still 24hrs in a day), the boundaries of adventure travel have moved on and with the ready availability of the internet for you to research this information, you can, very quickly, decide to take part in an adventure. Whilst some may think this is a bad thing – we don’t. We are, after all, in the business of helping you achieve your goals. So if you decide to have a crack at this you need to know what you are letting yourself in for.
Mont Blanc will maybe be the hardest week you experience in your life. It is high, it is cold and it is exposed. It is also dangerous. Some people say risk is part of the adventure. We don’t think so. Risk is something you accept to enable you to achieve what you want to do. We, or anyone, can’t eliminate that risk. But we can do our best to reduce it. So, assuming you decide it is for you, you need to get in shape. Get down the gym. Go running. Go cyling or take part in some of our preparation courses. It is physically tiring and you need to be as best prepared as possible. Do plenty of cardio so you have good stamina and strengthen your legs through cycling and hill days. We will send you a fitness training plan, but also have a look at our preparation courses. They are invaluable in giving you the best chance. Once you have done all this, we will do our best to get you to the top. But it won’t be easy!
