Description

This reputation, deserved by an exceptional environment and a history without comparison, leaves a kind of elitism. However, although the Mont-Blanc massif is full of summits and climbing routes, each one more technical than the other, it is also possible for neophytes to discover the world of the high mountains, to penetrate this unique and extraordinary environment. We propose here to take advantage of initiation to mountaineering with first an exceptional trip on board of the famous Montenvers train. The Montenvers site is a gateway to the Mont-Blanc massif! We will walk on a glacier to enjoy the sumptuous view of the peaks of the Vallée Blanche. A unique opportunity to take your first steps in the high mountains. The guide reserves the right to modify the planned itinerary according to weather conditions and participants' physical condition.
