All our guided treks are led by qualified a UIMLA mountain professional. They will guide you throughout your trek and ensure your safety at all times as well as offering you a wealth of information regarding the flora, fauna and history of the area.
We have a team of very experienced fully qualified Mountain Leaders who live and work in the Alps all year round. We feel this is such an important element of your holiday that it is essential to get the right people for the job. Which is why we are very pleased that Joy O'Flanagan, Alison Culshaw, Alex Langdon, Gary Hodgson, Paul Colley-Davis, Emma Jack, Sandy Patterson, Kelvyn James, Victoria Chelton, Duncan Boar, and Sara Wild will be guiding the Mont Blanc Treks in 2018.
