Wonderful 5 days of mixed climbing with the vastly experienced mountain guide Neil Hitchings. Despite changing weather, Neil managed to find something exciting and challenging to do each day. Overall, memorable for all the right reasons.

We spent a day ski touring in the Aiguilles Rouges and it was one of our best days of the trip. It was pretty foggy so we were unable to experience most of the views. Would definitely go back!

I didn't climb all the way but I really enjoyed hiking around the area. I would recommend you take at least half a day to enjoy it best.

Climbed this peak in hot sunshine last August--not particularly strenuous--if you are fit--snow still lying there--good fun on a very hot day! Great view from the top--think it was about 2500m

No! Because the view of the valley as you disappear into the clouds on the cable car is still amazing. Then you're just travelling in whiteness and have no idea what's going on... so that's it's own experience - especially when a rock suddenly emerges...More

Cant recommend this walk highly enough. From the Index chair lift (above Flegere from Les Praz) short descent on ski-run, before climbing up valley to Cwm at Lac Cornu/Lac Noirs). Via Ferrata-style cables/rungs to help with slightly tricky sections (not too scary - fine for...More

The Aiguilles Rouges natural reserve is great for hikes and also for rock climbing. There are several lakes that one can hike up to. Lac Blanc is the best known because there is a nice restaurant up there. The other lakes are more "wild nature"....More
