This breathtaking trek covers 46 km through the Mont Blanc region of the Alps. Join our partners, Global Adventure Challenges, and be part of this amazing European challenge and witness just how beautiful the Alps can be!
Just a hop away from the UK lies the beauty of the Alps mountain range. Only five days in total, this charity challenge is ideal for those with less time to take away from home. One magnificent highlight of this challenge is that you will visit three countries in just three days – France, Italy and Switzerland!
This trek will certainly challenge you with lots of ups and downs, but the rewards are the pleasure of seeing the most spectacular views this part of Europe has to offer – from stunning cliffs, to gorgeous waterfalls running from glaciers!
This challenge has been graded as Tough (2) on Discover Adventure’s challenge grading scheme, meaning the trek has been designed to be challenging but achievable as long as you train beforehand. You will be trekking for 3 consecutive days, so the fitter you are the more you will enjoy the challenge!
Training tips can be found on the GlobalAdventure Challenges website to point you in the right direction and can even join one of their training weekends – a great opportunity for you to meet their team and some fellow participants!
