MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
There were several highlights of the trip: after the somewhat long and, at times, challenging walk to reach the top at 'Lac Blanc' it was worth every minute. We were privileged to see Ibex who paused long enough for photos posing adjacent to the turquoise meltwater. The trip to Italy was beautiful - the amazing 'balcony walk' through meadows filled with wild flowers identified and described by Oliver, whose extensive knowledge made them even more interesting. Every day was different and memorable in its own right.
What did you think of your group leader?
Oliver, as our group leader was caring, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and also great fun! His co-pilot, Dylan, was also amusing (Fox Terrier!). At all times, we felt safe, included and we could not have asked for a nicer person to make the walks interesting and fun .
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
I would certainly advise being prepared for changable weather. One day we experienced all conditions apart from snow! It was often warm and benign low down needing suncream and sunhats, but at high altitude the weather became cool and wet on two occaions thus needing our waterproof leggings which we had fortunately packed in our backpacks.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I would recommend this trip to potential Exodus customers. As a grade B walk we felt it was about right - some challenging walks and some less so. However, every day was a full days' walk and the hot-tub and large evening meal (with plenty of wine) was much appreciated. Our third Exodus holiday and more to come!
