Summer 2008 looks set to be our busiest ever for groups on the classic Tour du Mont Blanc trek (TMB). Already two groups have enjoyed superb weather conditions, to undertake this 3 countries and 165km trek around the highest peak in the Alps. Our next trip sets off on Saturday, to make a quick tour in just 6 days. We are seeing more and more clients approach us for tailor made TMBs for between 2 and 10 people, who do not wish to share their tour with others. This bespoke TMB always works out cheaper than our scheduled departures, so if you still haven’t made holiday plans, then get in touch. As far as conditions reports, the classic cols of La Seigne and Grand Col Ferret still have a few snow patches on them, and the variant over the Col de Fours has a lot of snow still on it, so is not recommended at the moment. All our trips are led by qualified trekking guides, so don’t worry about the snow patches, as they are there to look after you over these minor hazards.
