Climb Mont Blanc and Gran Paradi

Climb Mont Blanc and Gran Paradi Overview

Climb to the summit of Mont Blanc, the highest peak in western Europe and climb to the summit of Gran Paradiso, the highest peak in Italy

If you are looking to climb Mont Blanc, this 1-week Alpine climbing holiday preparing and acclimatising on Italy's Gran Paradiso prior to the ascent, offers the best chance of summit success. After a rendezvous and briefing in Chamonix we drive through the Mont Blanc tunnel to Italy, where we have a session of skills training before making an ascent of Gran Paradiso (4061m), the only 4000 metre peak entirely within Italy's borders. The short approach hike to the Refugio Vittorio Emanuele, followed by the classic, easy snow climb to the summit of Gran Paradiso is a great introduction to Alpine climbing. Returning to Chamonix, we have  a further day of acclimatisation and snow skills with an excursion from the top station of the Aiguille du Midi across the Vallee Blanche to Point Helbronner in Italy, returning on the scenic Gondola. We have allowed 3 days for the ascent of Mont Blanc, with 2 chances of making the summit via the 'Normal Route' from the Tete Rousse or Gouter huts. Our Mont Blanc trips are based at the extremely comfortable Yeti Lodge Chalets in Argentiere, close to Chamonix, offering all amenities including hot tubs, saunas and a great chef! Key to a successful Mont Blanc ascent are good acclimatisation and experienced, motivated guides. Our Mont Blanc package is fully inclusive of local transport and cable cars and all meals with the exception of lunches. This is a great value package, using a superb valley base and our expert guides will offer you every chance of getting to the summit on Mont Blanc.
