The best holiday ever!
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
There is so much to chose from as there were many breathtaking moments. Chamonix is probably the most beautiful town I ever visited. The mountains are very beautiful, and there are many memorable places. I enjoyed every second of walking, I loved every view, I loved everything. Even the only day with bad weather (rain and poor visibility) had it own magic. You would think that it would ruin your day, and yes it did a bit but I still loved it. But I think my favourite was the walk from La Flegere to Le Brevent. The views were magnificent, the trail challenging yet very unique and enjoyable. This is the day when you want to have a nice weather and good visibility the most.
What did you think of your group leader?
Our group leader Jenny Smith was fantastic. She was very helpful, informative and had a great knowledge of the area. She is a very nice person who I thought always gave her best and sometimes even went above and beyond in the most positive way. On every evening she informed us about our next tour and always gave us several options on how to do the route depending how good/tired we felt. She is a great leaded who always gave us her hand and helped us to go through all the difficult sections.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Read the trip notes and take all the gear that is says you need and always take waterproof clothes with you as the weather in the mountains is unpredictable and changes very quickly. You don't want to catch bad weather and not have the right gear, because the things can go really bad for you. Also make sure you have the right boots for the trip, I recommend ones with high and strong heels that will support your ankles.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
If you are still unsure, go through all the photos either on this page or google, but in reality the views are even better than on the photos. I could not recommend this trip enough and I thank Exodus and everyone involved for this fantastic experience. I will definitely book again in the near future.
