MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I loved the Lac Blanc walk. We had lunch on a rock overlooking four glaciers. Aiguille du Midi on the rest day was a highlight and so was the walk from there to the Mer de Glace. And every evening meal was a delight.

What did you think of your group leader?

Super chap. Worked really hard to ensure everyone in the group had walking of the right level with great sensitivity. Knowledgeable and good fun.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

A good choice if you are travelling alone, as the format of the chalet holiday provides company. And as almost everything is included, you will not need much spending money. Chamonix is lovely, but full of expensive outdoor clothing shops. A pharmacy and supermarket are 5 mins' walk from the chalet.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Jayne and John were running the chalet and our transports. Superbly organised, so everything ran super-smoothly and on time. I really enjoyed the week.
