If you love hiking and are not afraid of a challenge - long ascents and descents - then the 100 mile trek around Mount Blanc is not to be missed. The chance to hike in breathtaking scenery through three countries (Italy, France and Switzerland) is truly a once in a life time experience. There are several ways to do the... More

Incredible view that takes your breath away literally! Watch the altitude if you're not used to it, but we couldn't take our eyes from the scenery! Recommended to start early as it can be very busy on a good day.

This amazing trip to the top was my best trip ever. In the top, the views are amazing and breathtaking. However, you need to plan it right and go as early as possible to avoid the crowd.

Despite many people as usual advise us not to go with our small todler to such a locations we proved opposite and we are happy we did. Climbing with two years old was challenging but well worth. Views on top won't leave my memory ever.

Travelling home to UK from Italy through the tunnel.... Couldn't quite believe the sign showing 90 minute delay as the road was dead quiet. We were so wrong! 2 lanes of quiet traffic turned into about 8 kiosks, creating road rage along the way when cars started up the bus lane..... Awful!! Take another route if you can!

Beautiful place to visit. The town of Chamonix is very charming. Many hotels and restaurants lots of shopping here as well. Mont Blanc's river of water is running though the town of Chamonix. If you stand beside the river you can feel the breeze of cold mist in the air even though it was 39 c in the town.

We where to the Aiguille du midi, it's awesome way but too expensive. We enyoyed better taking the Belvedere lift and go for a 1'30" hike once ther.

I went to Mont Blanc with high expectations and left the place simply amazed. Going up almost 4,800 meters and been able to see the majestic mountain is a breathtaking experience.i haven't seen a landscape so magnificent... I recomend everybody to make this trip to the summit. There are good tours that organize the trip. A wonderful experience!
