Mountaineering and climbing Mont Blanc


Welcome to the world of High Mountain

Since the first ascent of Mont Blanc on August 8, 1786, by Jacques Balmat and Michel Gabriel Paccard, the Chamonix Valley and the Mont Blanc massif have attracted mountaineers from all over the world.

Mountaineering is not just about summiting peaks, but also about immersing yourself in an exceptional alpine environment, with its wildlife, flora, and specific weather phenomena. It is an activity that involves risks and therefore requires serious preparation, including training in mountain techniques, meticulous planning of routes, and constant vigilance in the face of changing mountain conditions.

For these reasons, you must be accompanied by a mountain professional!
