Mont Blanc Ascent

Firstly may I just say I absolutely loved the Mont Blanc trip, and when talking to the other climbers who had gone with other agencies, our trip had the best mix of mountain huts, walks and training, so thank you, it really was superb.

Stevenson's Trail: The Cevennes 10 Day Guided Walk

In the autumn of 1878, Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson, author of 'Treasure Island', set out from Le Monastier in the Auvergne to walk south across the Cevennes accompanied by his donkey Modestine. His subsequent book, 'Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes' has since become a travel classic. Our walk starts near Le Puy en Velay in the Auvergne and follows a winding route southwards across the more mountainous Cevennes on the eastern flank of the Massif Central. The region boasts great natural beauty and is almost totally unspoilt. The region is full of sad romantic ruins. Whilst the Cevennes always provide fairly rugged terrain and the walk does cross two significant mountains, Mont du Goulet (1497m) and Mont Lozere (1699m), the walk itself is not unduly demanding.
