For most of the 1 to 1 guided adventures we use the Chamonix valley which sits at the foot of the majestic snow covered peak of Mt Blanc which towers over the area, standing 4810m tall. Chamonix hosts the world famous UTMB (Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc) race and is a mecca for professional trail running athletes and the buzz of the town and the beauty of the trails provide an inspiring backdrop to a trail running adventure. Trails around this area are truly captivating with glaciers and summits round each corner. Alternatively, we can head out to the surrounding mountainous areas, including Italy and Switzerland.
