    Can I skip a day's walking?

    The leader will be able to advise on how you can reach the next night’s campsite using public transport. There is a reasonable bus service in many of the areas visited. Please contact Exodus directly if you require any further information.

    Do I have to put my own tent up and help with chores?

    You do have to put your own tent up each evening and take it down each morning but this doesn’t take very long. It would be appreciated if you helped out with a few camp chores such as washing up and clearing the table and you will have to make your own sandwiches before each walking day.

    What is the food like while camping?

    Breakfasts consist of bread, cereals, yoghurt and plenty of tea and coffee. Each morning, fresh ingredients are laid out for you to make your own choice of sandwiches. A range of fillings are available, including some suitable for vegetarians. Fruit is also provided. On many of the walking days it is possible to stop at one or more mountain refuges which serve a range of refreshments including some delicious cakes and tarts. In the evening a hot meal will either be cooked for you in camp or we will eat out at a local restaurant. A vegetarian option will be made available but there may not be the choice of dishes that you would get in the UK.

    Do I need to take both Swiss Francs and Euros?

    It’s not necessary to take both currencies as the places we visit in Switzerland will take Euros. However, you may not get a particularly favourable Euro/ Swiss Franc exchange rate, but you won't be spending much when over the border so the difference is minimal.

    Tips from staff who have done the Mont Blanc circuit

    Weather - I did the trip in late June last year, and the weather was lovely pretty much all the way through. We did have a couple of days of white cloud or grey skies, but the sun was actually out most of the time. It rained a couple of afternoons after the clouds built up. To check the weather, I would look online at forecasts. It's impossible to say what the conditions are going to be exactly, as the mountains can change everything depending on local patterns. It should be nice and warm during the day, low to mid 20s, and pleasant evenings lower down. As you go higher, you may find it chilly sometimes in the evening and so will need a fleece/ jacket for this.

     

    Clothing - I had a warm fleece, wind/ waterproof jacket and some gloves. Apart from that, it was just the usual layers underneath. I would also advise a rain cover for your rucksack.

     

    Washing - I did wash out things as I went along, and just dried them at the campsites, which didn't present any problems. I don't recall any washing machines.

     

    Water - you don't need purification tablets, as the campsites will have drinking water available to fill your bottles from as you go along.

     

    Free time - Courmayeur is very pretty and lovely to walk around for a few hours. Most of us did a cable car ride and it's well worth it for amazing views. I think the next free day (11 or 12) most of us took it easy, as it was the first day off for a while! The last free day in Chamonix, I just spent relaxing around Chamonix having a beer and sitting in the sunshine. I don't think anyone did extra walks, but some people did take the other cable car ride.

     

    Money - It's hard to say exactly how much to take, as some people take more than others. You need to budget for the meals not included, plus drinks, and anything over that is optional. For the lunches not included, maybe allow €60. For the dinner not included, maybe €25 and then drinks will depend but costs aren't so different to the UK, so whatever you would spend on water, juice and alcohol normally.

     

    It's a great trip, and nothing to different to advise apart from what's in the trip notes. The more basic camps are just that, so don't expect comfort, but all the rest are really nice!

    What do we do about washing whilst on trek?

    A few campsites actually have washing machines and lines to hang stuff on, and you can usually get things pretty dry.

    The others have a minimum of a sink so you could always run water through things, and then there are two wild camps with nothing.

    How do I compare trips for my next adventure?

    To compare trips for consideration, you can add them to your 'Shortlist'.

    During your search for your next adventure you can save 'holidays' to your Shortlist and compare trips. For this to work correctly, you must be signed in during your 'user session'; i.e. during your time on the Exodus website. These will then be saved in your account (don't have an Exodus website account?  Sign up now!).

    The Shortlist menu item (top of every page) only appears when holidays are added. Adding holidays can be done by clicking on the 'Add to shortlist' with the 'Heart' symbol on any 'Holiday' page above the 'At a Glance' section, or in the 'holiday' panels within Search Results pages, or in the 'You might also like...' section at the foot of the trip page viewed. The selected holidays will be saved into your account for consideration and can be removed there, as well as from the 'compare trips' page from the menu link located at the top of every page.
