Sometimes the desire for something that is not accessible to everyone awakens in us. That's why we climb the highest peaks in our home area, then we go to the highest peaks in our country, followed by those of our neighbours. Now it is the turn of the highest peak in Alps. Mont Blanc towers over France and Italy with its rich history. Both countries passionately advocate that the top itself should belong to only one. Which one really belongs... will remain a question for some time. Despite this dilemma, this is a peak worth stepping on. Even more unforgettable is the unique skiing downhill back to the valley. A tour that is suitable only for the most prepared touring skiers.

Since this is a ski touring tour where we move at a high altitude and where problems with altitude sickness can occur and since the program does NOT include an acclimatization tour, we request that the guest do their own acclimatization in the week before leaving for the tour. At least a two-day ascent to a height of around 4000m (Grossglockner, Grand Paradiso, etc.) is absolutely recommended, and as a last resort, an ascent to an Austrian three-thousander with sleeping in a hut.
Since the ascent takes place at a high altitude and with a large height difference overcome, the ascent is physically demanding. In case of any complications (altitude sickness, weather changes, etc.), the ascent continues to the point where we can safely return back to the valley, for which the mountain guide is responsible.
One IFMGA-licensed mountain guide (an IFMGA-licensed mountain guide trainee can also help guide) can guide a maximum of two people according to the rules. In the event of any health complications of one of the guests, the relationship is reversed regardless of the good health of the other guest).
Good physical fitness is required, experience and knowledge of using technical winter equipment and ski touring techniques are a condition.
