Day Description
Tourists around Mont Blanc usually travel to Chamonix (the starting point of our trip to the Alps) via Geneva (Switzerland), where many airlines fly. From Geneva to Chamonix, take a bus that takes you to the foot of the charming Mont Blanc for about an hour.
If we come to Chamonix, not too late, we will try to walk around the cozy streets of the Alpine town. We'll take a closer look at the evening and discuss the plans for tomorrow, but we will not stay long because we are in the mountains early in the morning.

Day Description
Trekking around Mont Blanc will begin early in the morning to move to the neighboring village of Les Houches, where we will throw the backpack on back and start climbing. If the lift works, we will lift the task from day one and we will pick up the first 800 meters with it.
Not far from the upper station of the lift is the mountain stop, which occupies the brave climbers of the Mont Blanc mountain, we will become the next valley and meet the first pass in our campaign around Mont Blanc.
Nearby we will see the huge glacier Buanasai, which slowly sneaks into the valley of the Mont Blanc massif. A lot of Mont Blanc glaciers will accompany us all the way, these incredible creations of nature will enjoy our eyes.
The climb to the Tricot Pass is slightly sloping and there will be no great power that can not be said for the downhill that will dive into the deep mountain valley with a coil. We will try to stay a bit on the pass, considering the Alps at a height of almost 2100 meters.
Far below you will see the buildings of the tourist shelter and several houses of French shepherds where it will descend. Already in the valley we will have. Lunch and rest for a while, admiring the beauty of the nature of France.
In the afternoon, we go again, bending over Mount Montk. The trees start again and the air is filled with the aromas of the coniferous trees. The forest phase of our transitions around Mont Blanc ends in the village of Le Contamin-Montgouille.
For the evening, we'll stop at the camp at the end of the valley, away from civilization. In the evening we will share our impressions of the first full day of the mountaineering around Mont Blanc.

Day Description
The day start early, like the other days over the time on the excursion in Alps. After the breakfast, we will be followed by a hike near Mont Blanc, a backside of the Mountain valley and an ancient monastery in the very edge of the valley. Ancient architecture in Alps is old-fashioned, which allows you to touch the history of this part of Europe.
Brought the tryabva and the mine to some one's side, one from koito, you should find yourself on the same way, so that one should perish, and protect yourself from boil over. Cheren pat no way all along the mountain, approaching to the rock of the spring, hanging over us.
On our way along the cross from different places, representatives of the local fauna - marmoti, lazily and comfortably move along the slope. From time to time in a spiral for pictures of a mix of animals, we can pass a passage to the bridge, and the coité from the century has borne two planinsky valleys.
The passage is very close, much of the footprint, and we’ll trace our eyes to the dalboka Planinska valley.

Day Description
Today we are entering a new country - Italy, so we will not stay long in tents. After preparing our equipment for a long transition, we will continue to track around Mont Blanc.
At the end of the mountain valley, the ascent to the border crossing will begin, the trail will enjoy the excellent views of the adjacent peaks and the huge glaciers that have melted in recent decades. The mountains will begin to surround us on all sides, besieging stone walls and rocky peaks.
Suddenly we will get to the pass, leaving behind the beloved France. The picturesque Mont Blanc with its steep walls and glaciers, rocky peaks and noisy rivers originating from the glaciers.
With the pass through the winds, we will quickly descend into the valley where we will continue our march around Mont Blanc. Remnants of destroyed buildings, a mountain shelter (which is now called refugio in Italy), a loud waterfall of a glacier overhanging the valley, a vast moraine, and a turquoise mountain lake will fill the next few hours of our journey until we reach the forest area. The outskirts of the Italian mountain village.
The Italian Alps are not similar to French, and this applies not only to the relief but also to the flora from which the larch is a prominent representative. In Italy we will see unusual deciduous forests.
We will spend the night in the camp, to the inaccessible stone slopes of Mont Blanc. Dinner will try with additional local products, at least Italian wine. A warm shower will bring us back to life.

Day Description
We leave the camp ang going to the center of the small Italian town of Courmayeur, try to find a café with the most delicious pizza (in Italy there is no other way) and enjoy this miracle of local cuisine.
After a walk in a cozy Italian city, we'll take a bus to the upper parts of the mountain valley, significantly shortening our way today. To the left, Mont Blanc's rocky spurs will climb, sometimes covered with vegetation. We will pass the first part of the road through the woods, although very soon we will get to the alpine meadows that Milka chocolate ads like cows so much.
In the distance, another spectacular view of another glacier, which slowly descends from Mont Blanc, will begin to open. Like the rest of the Mont Blanc glaciers, this time it has significantly gone through the last decade, leaving behind a stone moraine and reddish rocks.
The climb to the mountain shelter is ahead, and the night is not far from the pass. If you have the strength and desire, we will be able to move to neighboring Switzerland and spend the night in the campsite.

Day Description
A new day and a new country - Switzerland, which is famous for its cheese, watches and banks. These are the days of our transitions around Mont Blanc, which by the sixth day will now begin to acquire the outlines of the gastro tour.
Leaving behind a long ascent, we reach the place of the prestigious passage. Here we say goodbye to Italy, admire new landscapes and begin to descend to Switzerland, which will be at our feet. Tiring downhill and taking a lot of energy, but walking a clean Swiss valley, very quickly forgot about fatigue.
Cozy houses, which the Swiss are carefully decorated with flowers, will delight our eyes. In the next village we will walk a few streets until we wait for the bus to our next camp.
If we spend the night in Switzerland the day before, then today we will make a small transition through the Swiss wilderness to the next village and camping on the shore of the lake. The warm shower will give us strength and help you sleep better, the trips around Mont Blanc will make you feel comfortable.

Day Description
We are waking up earlier, because today we have one of the most difficult passes for our trip around Mont Blanc. If time does not fly or there is doubt about our abilities, we will simplify the route a bit by circumventing the difficult to pass.
Switzerland will continue to enjoy beautiful views, well-kept houses and clean cows that we have seen in chocolate advertisements. The intersection of mountain roads and paths will reach the highest point of the day and then we will begin to descend into a new mountain valley .
If we go in the easiest way, we will go one of the passes on the mountain scene of the Tour de France race bike, which briefly visits these edges. Overnight in a cozy valley near the ancient but well-maintained Swiss houses will end today in the Alps. Today we will spend the night in Switzerland and tomorrow France will be waiting for us

Day Description
The day will be busy and so we wake up too early. The hot breakfast will give us strength, then we will go up where, as usual, we have to wait for the next pass.
The rings of the mountain trail suddenly end up on the edge of the forest when a passage rises on the horizon, at the saddle where another mountain shelter rises. The last kilometers in the Swiss territory will be dragged for an hour until we are happy to get to the hut of the pass.
The view from the Balme Pass will attract us by showing snow cover Mont Blanc in a new perspective. From here it looks amazing. People fall in love with the mountains, and then they can hardly imagine another kind of holiday.
From the pass we will go down to the next village, where we will move to Camping in Chamonix. In the evening wash the dust of the roads and remember the adventures of the days that passed through it.

Day Description
Today you will have the choice either to go to the gondola lift to Aiguille du Midi, or to go radially all day to White Lake or just go around the city and buy souvenirs for relatives and friends. This list can be diluted with a few more excursions in the Chamonix valley, such as the Mer-de-Glacier, a huge glacier that slides into the valley of the great Mont Blanc.
No matter which option you choose, Chamonix will not disappoint you. By the way, the path to the desired white lake can be reduced by the gondola lift and greatly saves time and effort for tourists.
In the evening there will be a gala dinner, during which we will share our impressions of the mountaineering around Mont Blanc, we will recall the remarkable moments of our journey and maybe we will begin to make plans for the future. Overnight.

Reservation and payment
Reservation and payment
To reserve a place in a group, must fill out a form, buy tickets and make a prepayment of 100 euros, and the remainder will be paid in Chamonix in EUR (€).
Additional costs
It will be approximately € 110-150 and will partly depend on your campaign preferences. In fact, it will be the price for travel, camps and additional dishes. We try to reduce the extra costs, but this is not always possible.
How to fly and where the meeting is
The group will meet the instructor in Chamonix, which can be reached by a direct bus from Geneva (tickets can be purchased online) or from another city in France or Italy. You may arrive at Chamonix almost at any time, anyway, we will stay in one of the camps for the night. The instructor will welcome you to the bus station or we will send you detailed directions on how to get to the campsite (if we spend the night at the campsite near the bus station). We will spend the last night of a trip to Chamonix so you can pick up return tickets with early departures
Documents, currency, communications
For citizens outside the European Union: To visit France, you will need a valid passport (valid for another 6 months after the end of our trip) and a Schengen visa to be obtained in advance (usually takes about 30 days). We will provide you with the necessary documents for the visa (description of the English itinerary and accommodation data), but you will have to pass the documents on your own (if you have never registered before, we will consult you).
During the trip, we will visit 3 countries - France, Italy and Switzerland, on whose territory you can and will have to pay in euros (EUR). Do not be surprised, even in Switzerland in the border region easily can pay with euro. In most cases, it will be possible to pay by credit card with rare exceptions.
Communication is the biggest problem on this route so far, as buying 3 different SIM cards is not entirely rational. That's why we recommend buying a passenger SIM that can be complemented by Wi-Fi at cafes and campsites.
Weather and equipment
As always, the current weather forecast will be 3-4 days before the trip, earlier forecasts are not very accurate.
We try to choose the least time when there are few more tourists in the mountain. It leaves its mark on the pedestrian crossings around Mont Blanc at different times of the year.
Summer: At the beginning of the summer, the Alps are already warm, although it is still possible to see snow over 2,000 meters (especially in shady areas). Air temperature in the mountain valleys rises above +20 during the day, but can climb to +10 (at high passes) while climbing. At the same time, during the night in the valleys, the temperature may fall below +5 (possible freezing). Almost all the nights we planned in the mountain valleys, so that at night it is relatively warm (although much will depend on time).

Autumn: The mountains are still warm and during the day often the temperature exceeds +20, but it is cooler at night, but the temperature rarely falls below +5 in the mountain valleys.
In the high mountains, precipitation is almost always possible, so special attention should be paid to protection against moisture (good membrane shoes, membrane clothing and raincoat pocket covering the backpack at the same time). At the same time, at the beginning of the summer there may be a small layer of snow, so the obligatory ghettos are (covering the legs, which prevent the snow from entering the shoe). Additionally, do not forget to pick up trekking poles, the excursion is full of downhills and climbs.
Here are references to the weather forecast that will be suitable for 3-4 days before the trip:

Experience
It is desirable that you have previously be in camp a tent and that you can walk 10 km for an hour in of road.
How to prepare?
Climbing and cross-country running can be considered as perfect training. Kneeling will strengthen the muscles of the legs and will not hurt you after the first ascent. You can squat at home in the evening, preferably 100-150 times in several series. The cramps should start 2 weeks before the start of the tour, believe me, your body will be grateful for this. As far as running on a terrain is concerned, it's hard to replace it with something, but you can just run to the stadium or ride a bicycle. This, though it does not strengthen your ankle, but will help you train your heart before you go (you will be less busy than the thin air).
What is a lap - continuous climb and descent. During our trip we will have several mountain passes and several mountain valleys. Climbs to the passageways will be on average difficult paths, so we will often climb and descend on a steep slope and therefore we need to strengthen the ankle.
