Hiking Mont Blanc

Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, attracts hikers from all over the world.  The beauty and majesty  of this region is hard to overstate; it should be experienced by everyone on foot at some point in their lives. Thanks to several cable cars and chair lifts you can get a glimpse of the impressive mountain scenery even if you are not a hardcore hiker. We design easy walking experiences where we combine comfort and exceptional day walks but also challenging trekking experiences with overnight stays in cosy mountain refuges or charming villages. We can offer several options to discover the Mont Blanc area. We strive to find a trip for every client!
