Climb the Highest Summit in Western Europe with your own mountain guide for the week. After training and acclimatising from our base in Evolène we climb Mont Blanc at a 1:1 guiding ratio, usually by the Goûter Ridge.

There are three days set aside for climbing Mont Blanc which adds flexibility in timing the ascent to get suitable weather. Instruction in Alpine skills is given during the important first 3 days of training and acclimatising. The price includes 6 days guiding and guides' expenses, full-board accommodation when staying in the valley, 4 nights mountain hut fees (half board) and transport to/from Chamonix. Some prior experience of winter mountaineering/alpine climbing is required (using crampons and ice axe). This can be gained on our Introduction to Alpine Climbing course or on a Scottish Winter Skills course.
