Climb Mont Blanc with a Mountain Guide in Chamonix

Mont-Blanc Ascent:
Every week from mid-June until mid October.
Mont Blanc, highest peak of Europe, is without a doubt, the most breathtaking and beautiful mountain in the world and every year many mountaineers ascend this famous peak.
Under-estimated by many people, the ascent is a relatively simple snow route, but requires a high level of physical fitness for a long high altitude ascent! Due to the altitude and the length of the climb, we never declare the ascent to be easy. The summit day, the ascent and descent requires 10 to 12 hours of continuous effort!
