Additional Information

In the Mont Blanc massif, there is one giant which stands alone amongst a myriad of snow-capped peaks. Looming over the climbing mecca of Chamonix, the majesty of Mont Blanc has captivated climbers for centuries and calls all would-be explorers to join them a top of Western Europe’s highest peak. Attempted over two days, our itinerary is designed to give you the very best chance of reaching the summit. During the expedition, the rewarding peak of Tête Blanche will also usually be climbed, teaching snow and ice techniques, building your confidence and helping with acclimatisation. *Mont Blanc permits:* It is mandatory for climbers to hold a permit on this trip. While the climbing permit is included in the package, the number of permits released is limited and they are only released on certain dates each year. Therefore your booking won’t be confirmed until we obtain your permit. Permits are expected to be released on three different dates in 2020 and they are highly sought after. We strongly recommend booking at least 6-8 months in advance to avoid disappointment.
