    Descripción:

    The Mont Blanc (4808m), the highest mountain in the Alps is definitely the most wanted summit by most climbers.

    The Gouter’s route, in spite of being the easiest, requires a good physical form, good acclimatization and a minimum knowledge of the mountains. That’s why we think that the best proposal is a one-week program so that you have the maximum guarantees of reaching the summit.
