Stunning views of the Mont Blanc massif

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I really loved the walking on the Courmayeur day. The views were amazing, there were mountain flowers everywhere and it felt slightly more remote. It was great to just take in my surroundings.

What did you think of your group leader?

Very knowledgeable of the trekking that goes on in the area and you can tell that he has a real passion for it. He adapted the walks based on the weather and the group’s varying abilities which showed his experience. He also joined the group for drinks on a few evenings which was something that he didn’t have to do but was a nice touch.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Comfortable and suitable footwear is essential. Walking poles are also a great help for walking efficiency and balance. Be prepared for varying temperatures and weather conditions. The weather was mostly good but wearing layers that you can add/remove depending on conditions and having waterproofs will make the trekking a far more enjoyable experience.
