Trek highlights, what the clients think...

We asked our clients to give us their thoughts on what were their favorite bits of the trek, here is what they had to say...

Tour du Mont Blanc

"Its got to be the early morning start, cold morning air and the sun rising on the Col du Seigne revealing stunning views of Mont Blanc and the Val Veny, amazing"

 

"I thought the wild flowers on the way up to the Col du Ferret were really nice, it was amazing how many different species we found and in the most bizarre places"

 

"Most probably the food at the Maison Vieille, absolutely fabulous, four courses of Italian delight"

 

"Views as you reach the Col du Blame at the end of the tour and you see the Mont Blanc and the Chamonix Valley once again, I'll remember that one for a while"

Walker's Haute Route

"Views from the Col du Torrent, the weather made it... we could see everything. A truly lovely place to have lunch"

 

"Taschalp to Zermatt, what a great last day and a stunning track at high level into Zermatt, we even saw the Matterhorn for a while!"

 

"The weather! after 4 days of cloud and rain oh boy we were glad of the return of the sun on day 4"


"The views from the Col de Reidmatten and up the Mattertal, in particular, will stay with us for a very long time.  But there were many memorable highlights.  It really is a stunning part of the world, and all four of us agreed that it was a terrific holiday. Sometime, we'd love to come back and fill in the gaps"


"We've now returned home after the most amazing trip! Haute Route was probably the best holiday we've had so far, very hard especially the first hot days but got easier after couple of days then. There were days that we walked probably 4 hours before meeting any other person. Silence, and very precious moments!"

Chamonix day walks

"Lac Blanc and its stunning views, it was so worth the hike up there. It was really a very special place"

 

"My favorite apart from the great views was coming across the Ibex just off the track as we went up past the Berand refuge and towards the col, great"

" We had a great time on our recent Walkers’ High Route trek. It was challenging, but very satisfying, Joy was an excellent guide and is a credit to MBT. Sauze who helped out for the first few days was also excellent. We had a bluebird day in Zermatt at the end which was perfect! "

As you can see, I am up early, still pretending I am there and about to meet up for breakfast and start the day on the trail. A huge thank you to all for making this such a special trip. I haven’t laughed as much for some time and miss it already. You are a special group of people.

" What a fantastic trip! Sara chose an interesting route and we were treated to some amazing views, great accommodation, food and company. We were well looked after as individuals, a truly special experience with friends and one I will definitely repeat! "

Anne Norris, Brisbane, Austraila

" Having never attempted a walking tour before I joined Mont Blanc Treks for the Tour du Mont Blanc commencing 14 September. The scenery, fellow tour walkers, the company of the guide, and quality of accommodation were superb to say the least! It showed Sara had not only a vast knowledge of the area and wildlife, but took care to ensure all clients were looked after and comfortable. I enjoyed it so much I'm looking to attempt part of the Walkers Haute Route with Mont Blanc Treks next year. "
