MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Walking with constant views & spectacular viewpoints. Profusion of flowers against magnificent backdrops. Paragliding alongside  Mont Blanc. Views from the hot tub. Views from L`Aiguille du Midi on a good day.  

What did you think of your group leader?

Everything you would hope for - well organised, people skills, knowledgeable(local conditions, geography/geology, flowers, guiding) experienced leader, clear expectations, sense of humour, joyful, calm,  considerate & supportive, helpful, willingness to share, mindful & informative of potential difficulties, mindful of the whole group, to be trusted. Oliver & wife Elaine were central to a warm, comfortable, much enjoyed house party.  

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Crocs or similar to walk to & from the hot tub unless you prefer bare feet on gravel. Walking poles are so helpful. The trip notes include everything you need to know especially clothing & walking days. The walks have achievable challenges which add to the enjoyment. Need to be able to carry up to 2 litres of water. No need for Swiss francs.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

There is great joy in walking. being led & sharing as a group. Remember this is what you sign up for.
