How can people often with no experience climb Mont Blanc in only 6 days? It's totally achievable if you are fit enough, but 6 days is really only a minimum amount of time to acclimatise and prepare for Mont Blanc. Our program has been refined over 12 years of operation and more than 2500 clients to give what we believe is the finest Mont Blanc experience possible, with 3 days training on Gran Paradiso (4061m) followed by 3 days on Mont Blanc itself. Click on the diagram below to see the program for each day.
Our courses start on a Monday, Wednesday or Saturday throughout the summer, and you need to arrive with us sometime in the afternoon or early evening of that day. All courses are identical otherwise, it's just a way for us to avoid overcrowding in the mountain huts.
By far the easiest way is to fly to Geneva then take an airport transfer with our preferred supplier Mountain Dropoffs who offer a door to door transfer service for around 35€ per person per trip.
When you arrive at our basecamp chalet "The Castle" (see accommodation page) you can move into your room (your name will be on the door) and a Mont Blanc Guides representative will meet you at 6:00pm for a welcome drink and introductory briefing. This takes about half an hour, after which you sit down to your first evening meal. A nice relaxing start to a week which gets harder and harder…
