MONT BLANC CIRCUIT

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

There were many! A favourite day involved a walk from the Val Ferret on a quiet but stunningly beautiful route over two cols and a summit back to Courmayeur. Great views and a profusion of alpine flowers. Another highlight was the impeccable timing with which Graham got us all to the summit of Bregent on the final walking day 10 minutes before the weather closed in. A real sense of achievement for the whole group.

What did you think of your group leader?

See above - couldn't fault either Graham or Lewis, both of whom did a superb job in their respective roles.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Don't be put off by the idea of camping - it was no hardship at all, in fact quite the reverse - would really recommend it.
