tour du Mont Blanc

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

by far the most inspirational moments of the trip were the magnificent alpine views of glaciers and soaring peaks. the snow level was very low and this added to the majestic landscape we saw. Also the fact that there were many other groups and individuals along the route and the friendships made were excellent.

What did you think of your group leader?

First class. She had done her homework on the group and planned her day around supporting each individuals needs - quite difficult on a trip like this. She was informative about local issues and confident and clear with her directions and instructions. She also had a sense of humour!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

This is a tough walk and dont underestimate the fact that you will be walking over 70 miles with 6500m of ascent over 6 days. Travel as light as possible - about 9k max.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

i would have preferred to stay at the higher level huts and hostels rather than keep dropping down to the valley accommodation.
