MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Getting to the top at Brevent, it was a hard climb but the view made it worth it! I took the cable car up to Aiguille du Midi on the first day which gave the most amazing views across to Mont Blanc.
What did you think of your group leader?
Oliver certainly knows his stuff, he is very enthusiastic about his local environment, people, animals and plants. His jokes are truely terrible, but by the end of the week you are joining in with them too! :) Elaine's cooking is wonderful, you don't go hungry, and it is very impressive how she manages to cater for such a big group!
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Try and practise climbing some hills before you go, the distances you cover each day are not that far - approx 10 miles, but the ascents and descents at altitute might not be what you are used to. And read the trip notes to get an accurate idea of the planned walks, accomodation and trip.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
It was a really good week and was a good group of people, all of mixed abilities. If you go with the view of walking as a group rather than 15 individuals you will have a fabulous time.
