What a great trip! They are happy making tracks in the mountains. They see the value and the beauty of the natural world, the joy of sharing it with friends, the sense of accomplishment of doing something you weren't sure you could do. They know that feeling, when you are so tired, and so hungry (and yes, even so stinky) there is just no happiness that compares to what a hot shower, an amazing meal and a cozy bunk will bring you at the end of the day.
Life is short and if we are not careful, we can lose sight of what really makes it worth living.
Also, both Raphael and Anja are seriously BADASS!!! (even though they are also both kind of nerds)
Raphael and Anja did an amazing part with our group that had a lot of moving parts. Their support didn't end until we left the country.
Our accommodations were wonderful and luggage transfer was perfect (and when they were stuck in traffic we got a text advising us they'd be late).
Raphael showed up in person for a map review the night before we started hiking - and we met Anja along the way. What a dynamic duo. We can't wait to start planning our next adventure with them at the helm!
We, a family of 5, started to plan our track with Raphael and Anja more than half a year in advance, in October 17th and were preparing and waiting for it with great impatience.
We spent few days before the track in Verbier, hence, Raphael prepared a 4-days route.
Our special thanks to Anja, who prepared excellent Swiss National Day celebration dinner, which was accompanied by a bottle of nice Pinot Noar wine, in our first hut, Refuge du Peuty.
Raphael all the time had something to tell us about beautiful mountain views, berries or mushrooms, marmots or cows, was always ready to help to any of us, was so patient to our too frequent breaks - we all felt how he wanted that our Track will be, indeed, Happy!

We can't advise you on this, but we recommend you check at http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx .
3. Am I fit enough?
The longest day is 8-9 hours of trekking with a rucksack, so you need a good level of physical fitness. We recommend training with any sport that you enjoy (e.g. running, swimming, tennis) at least 2x per week, for three months before your trek. Training hikes will also help, ideally for a full day with a 5kg rucksack.
4. How old do I need to be?
The minimum age for this trek is 18.
5. Can I book on my own?
Absolutely! We also put you in touch with the other trekkers in the group before you go, with a Facebook group, if you want.
6. What equipment do I need?
Clothing suitable for hiking in temperatures from +30C to +5C. The full kit list will be sent to you when you apply for the trip.
7. Do you cater for all dietary requirements?
Yes, whether you are vegetarian, vegan or have allergies. Just let us know before you go.
8. Can you pick me up in Chamonix?
Yes, the guide can either pick you up at the train station or at the airport in Geneva.
9. Do I need to carry all my stuff up the mountain?
Yes - your full bag should be no more than 8kg (we recommend aiming for 5kg).
10. Do I need travel insurance?
Yes. Once you book, you will have access to discount codes with Dogtag insurance.
11. Do you trek the full Tour Du Mont Blanc?
This is part of the full Tour Du Mont Blanc, which otherwise takes 2-3 weeks in total. We believe these are 4 of the best days on the full route!
