Climb this breathtaking, infamous mountain over a 6-day adventure with an expert team.
Adventure Base have taken hundreds of clients to the summit of Mont Blanc - the roof of Western Europe, including none other than Sir Richard Branson, Princess Beatrice and Dwain Chambers. Here is what they had to say:
"I'd recommend Adventure Base 100%." Sir Richard Branson
"The summit was like a dream. It was so overwhelming I began to cry with joy for making it to this magical world at the top of Europe." Princess Beatrice
"Without Fabio and all the team at Adventure Base in Chamonix I would not have got the job done." Dwain Chambers
We think that this gives us a pretty good understanding of how to give you the best Mont Blanc experience that money can buy.

What You'll Need:
We use and endorse Sherpa and Black Diamond products because in our experience they are excellent. If necessary it is possible to rent most hardware items in Chamonix, however this is considered a last resort for some items - you should have kit that is suited to you and that you have had time to get familiar with: Ice axe* | Standard steel mountaineering Crampons* | Helmet* | Trekking Poles (optional)* | Insulated B2/B3 Hiking Boots* | 40-50L Rucksack | 1L Metal Waterbottle | Harness (adjustable so that it is comfortable over all your layers), 2 screw gate karabiners, belay device, 1 8-foot sling.* | Sunglasses (cat 4), goggles, sunhat, sunscreen, lip salve/block | 3 sets socks and light coloured thermal tops | Lightweight Goretex hooded top & bottoms | Warm hat, thick gloves (eg ski gloves that are warm and waterproof), thin gloves | Insulating mid-and-outer layers | Windproof Trousers | Lightweight Thermal leggings (long johns) | Personal first aid - blister kit, aspirin, or Paracetamol | Head torch and spare batteries | Lightweight Book/iPod for spare time in huts and earplugs | Sleeping bag liner for huts (you don't need a sleeping bag itself as blankets/duvets are provided) | Cash (euros) for extra drinks / snacks in huts (allow £20 per hut night) | ID | Snack food, teabags, if you have an alpine membership card its worth bringing that too. (*Can be rented.) Remember kit should be lightweight but functional - you have to carry it!
