Trekking to Mont Blanc, Zugspitze and Gran Paradiso

The journey to Europe involves the ascent to three the highest peaks of the Alps: Zugspitze (2962 m) in Germany, Gran Paradiso (4061 m) in Italy, Mont Blanc (4810 m) in France and Italy. The gradual set of altitudes and crossings between the mountains will allow you to acclimatize well. Alpine landscapes do not require advertising. On an occasion, we will try to arrive in Venice. We depart from Ternopil by minibus. Accommodation in tents, campsites and hostels.
