PROGRAM

Mont Blanc is the King of Alps and reaching its summit is the dream of every mountaineer. Nevertheless, the challenge is demanding and requires good technical skills, good physical fitness and acclimatization to altitude.

Our Stage Mont Blanc program is designed to give you the best chance of reaching the summit, with gradually approach to high altitude, glacier progression training and good management of physical energy.

But that’s not all, because the Mont Blanc stage is a unique experience in the Alps: first of all, we will climb Gran Paradiso, the highest peak entirely on Italian land, famous to be quite easy and at same time breathtaking.

Spending two nights at the comfortable Chabod Hut we will ensure the best acclimatization, getting ready to afford the Mont Blanc summit. So, moving at Chamonix, in France, we begin our final ascent.

If you dream to climb the highest summit of Europe, get in touch with our expert and local Guides, we will help you plan your Mont Blanc Stage!

As alternative, take a look to 3-days Mont Blanc Goûter Route ascent.

Note
For Mont Blanc ascent it is necessary to book the refuge (Tête Rousse or Goûter) a few months in advance of the date scheduled for the summit ascent. From 2019, the ascent to the summit is conditional on the mountaineers having a reservation for the refuge. We suggest to reserve your place before December 2022 in order to ensure your ascent in 2023.

In case of impossibility in climbing Mont Blanc, due to bad weather or insufficient skills, the second part of the trip will be moved in agreement with the Guide to the Monte Rosa area.
