In­tro­duc­tion to moun­taineer­ing, Aosta, Italy

Friday - - Travel -

KE Ad­ven­ture Travel’s pack­age for ‘novice alpin­ists’ is suit­able for any­one with a de­cent level of fit­ness and, im­por­tantly, a head for heights. The five-day trip, in­cor­po­rat­ing a week­end, will see you sum­mit the 4,000m Gran Par­adiso, as well as trek across the Vallee Blanche to the Aigu­ille du Midi. Par­tic­i­pants will learn moun­taineer­ing skills, with sup­port and tu­ition from ac­cred­ited guides (and a ra­tio of one guide to four for the whole week­end). Once the trip is com­pleted, the fi­nal night is spent soak­ing in a sauna in a chalet in Cha­monix.

Ap­prox Dh4,200pp, ex­clud­ing flights, kead­ven­ture.com (Septem­ber book­ings avail­able at press time).
