Mont Blanc Perfection
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Walking up to the Aguilettes D'Argentiere. Great trekking through woodland, balconies and fantastic views. Overcoming my fear of cable cars and going up to Agulie du Midi and onto Hellbronner. A must if the weather is clear, but take some thermals as it is a lot cooler up there.
What did you think of your group leader?
Nick was great. He paced the walking to all abilities. He adapted the walks according to the weather. Very knowledgeable about the area.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Although this trip is graded as moderate, the walks do involve quite long periods of up and down hill, some of them quite steep. With this in mind, some pre-trip fitness would be beneficial. A hat and some gloves are useful on cooler days. If you have some binoculars you can see climbers going up Mont Blanc.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
A quick mention on the the chalet hosts, Colin and Jane. GREAT hosts, very informative, great cooks and very helpful. Sorry about the cheeses I left behind in the fridge. Overall a great holiday.
