Reviews for French Alps climbing holiday, short break


review 11 Aug 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Reaching the Summit of Dome Des Ecrins at 08:40 on the Sunday morning after leaving the refuge at 04:00am! Overall the experience was great, certainly recommend Bernard's excellent skills at both guiding and pushing you to reach above your goals

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Good boots that you know are essential, you'll be working them hard over different terrain, with and without crampons. Stuff to eat while you're on the move or balanced on a snow-field - ideally softer the better - makes for less chewing time. I would recommend a water bladder for your rucksack - makes for easier drinking for sure, using a water bottle is okay, but if I went again I would take a bladder.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

For sure, the company I used was local - with local knowledge and family. I also utilised local hotels, restaurants and businesses whilst there.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic, would return (and plan to) in a flash! Go on this adventure
