Mont Blanc Highlights
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
1) coming across a (wild) Ibex 2) Feeling so close to the highest peaks on the Italian side of the range while walking through fields of Alpine wildflowers whose varieties were such an unexpected treat 3) spotting a marmot on a rock (and hearing his or her bird-like call!)
What did you think of your group leader?
Simon Conroy is another exceptional Exodus leader and guide. Experienced, encouraging, informative, worldly, accomodating (and humorous), we felt in the best of hands with a guy who could literally handle anything.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Bring your walking poles, plenty of sunscreen, hydration tablets for your water bottles and music (on your mobile phone or iPod) to share as the chalet has a sound system that accomodates this.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Showering at the end of each day of hiking and enjoying a well-earned dinner and down time with the group was a great way to process our experience while getting to know each other.
