Embrace the mont blanc adventure

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

All the spectacular views and stunning scenery. When the weather was great, the views could not be beaten. I could soak them in all day long. But never take them for granted as if the weather turns and the views disappear you certainly miss them.

What did you think of your group leader?

Lotte was excellent. She had a terrific knowledge of the local area, was always friendly and helpful and full of wonderful stories of her adventures around the world. She added to the whole experience of the trek. If she could just control the weather as well then she would have been the best!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Embrace this wonderful walk and embrace every spectacular view. This walk is 105 miles long. It has over 10000 metres of ascent and descent. It is a great great walk and well worth doing for any regular walker with a good level of fitness who walks at a good steady pace. It is a camping trip for 14 days with usual camping facilities, good camping grub, good camping socialising and the need to do your bit for the group with some basic chores. But think seriously if that is for you and if you decide to go then embrace the challenge as you will enjoy it so much more by appreciating the views, taking off the challenge and making new friends.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I only knocked one start off this review because the weather was only the downside of the whole trip as the middle few days turned very cloudy but can hardly blame Exodu for that! Appreciate every clear day when the views are at their best. And just enjoy it. It's a wonderful trip.
