Ivan was great at introducing us to Fontainebleau. He was very knowledgeable had lots of information to share and guided us around boulders that were a lot of fun for our level. I’d definitely recommend Ivan as Font can be a confusing place and he led us superbly.

I had a fantastic morning in the Calenques with Guillaume. He offered me a pick up from la Ciotat and dropped me off afterwards on town, both not part of the trip I booked! The climb was beautiful, the route challenging but I had excellent guiding/instructions! Will come back for sure! :-)

Fontainebleau bouldering half-day guided experience

We are so happy we got the chance to have a guided session at Fontainebleau with the E-S Guide team. They were super helpful and responsive, getting me and my climbing partner set up with a trip with <48 hours turnaround from first contact. We worked with Jèrèmie, who was top notch - he knew the area really well and was able to guide both of us to top multiple routes. He met us where we were at with our climbing ability, and was extremely creative at suggesting alternative beta and helping us through problems. THANK YOU!

Fontainebleau bouldering half-day guided experience

Communication with our guide, Claire, was super easy (via WhatsApp). We met her at the arranged meeting place and she showed us a great range of appropriate climbing spots. Her recommendations were exactly as we had requested (beginner and intermediate). Claire was informative, encouraging and patient, and her manner/teaching style really made for an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.‘I couldn’t recommend the service, or Claire, highly enough.

Half-Day Bouldering in Fontainebleau, near Paris

We had a great experience with our guide, Leo. He arrived on time, picked us up at the train at station and drove us to the climbing spot. Leo is very friendly, introduced to us the history of the town along our ride. He is a great climber. My 15 year old is an experienced indoor climber. He had such a great time with Leo and learned a lot also. I would highly recommend Leo for anyone who wants to try climbing at Fontainebleau. The only reason I rated 4 on service is because I found out the last minute change in the guide after I sent an email inquiring/confirming our meeting time and place before we left home for Paris. I wasn’t sure how I might have found out it’ll I didn’t proactively send a message. To be fair, Ivan responded to my email quickly and the next day I heard from Leo. I emailed Leo when we landed in Paris and connected on What’s App. At the end of the day, it all worked out great! We loved the service, and Leo is an excellent climbing guide!!!

Then he was a great guide, showing us around a variety of good boulder problems and helping us understand the local style/ethics.

Half-day sport climbing trip in southern France (Calanques de Marseille, Sainte Baume, Garlaban)

Guide was relatively helpful when planning, but we needed to reschedule due to rain, he stopped responding completely to email or text. Day of the climb, I kept messaging and trying to call him, but he blocked me? Very confusing. I'm sure he's probably a good climbing guide (we never ended up climbing with him), but his responsiveness was pretty unprofessional. We ended up finding some hikes to do in calanques and climbing at the local gym 🤷‍♂️ Guillaume’s answer - “Hello, thank you for your message. I’m sorry that we couldn’t make this outing because of the rain and then your schedule. Know that I didn’t block you but when we are active in the Calanques we don’t necessarily have a network.”

This was the first time that my friend and I went adventuring with Explore-Share. The process of booking and getting information from Gauthier and our guide (Ivan) was super straight-forward. On the day itself, our guide did a really nice job of creating an itinerary that was exciting and suitable for both a semi-experienced climber and a first-timer. As well as having fun, Ivan helped us to identify how to improve on our techniques moving forward. Would highly recommend. I'm already in the process of booking my next trip with Explore-Share!

Enrico is a mountaineering expert.

He is a very safe guide, does not take chances as he wants both of us to get back home safely! And he likes to share and explain every decision he makes. Every outing with Enrico is a 5 star experience.

Silvia from Peakshunter was the first guide to respond to my request and she was able to coordinate an awesome adventure for two days for me. I went in with no expectations since I don't know that region that well. I relied on their judgement. My guide was Elis and he was phenomenal and patient with me. They answered all my questions prior to the trip and made my experience in the Mont Blanc region unforgettable. I could not be happier with my experience with Peakshunter. Thank you Silvia and Elis!

We're looking forward to another trip with Ivan multi-pitch climbing in Spring.

2-day sport climbing in Gorges du Verdon

Max took us on an amazing route in the Verdon and we had a fantastic day. He also helped us refreshed our multi-pitching skills so gave us the confidence to do routes ourselves after the guided climb. Thanks!

Porto (Corsica) guided rock climbing day

My 1 day of glorious granite sport multi pitching with Cedric! The only route (??) to start from the sea was a great adventure with some exposed pitched of enjoyable climbing. Cedric was great: full of energy and enthusiasm and really motivating. Obviously extremely professional and handing out advice both with climbing technique and rope / safety.

North Faces of the Alps guided 4-day training program

Getting in contact through explore-share.com with Enrico Bonino, mountain guide, was really a snap. Some time later I got in contact over phone/mail with Enrico. Finally we found a time window in February to go ice climbing for 2 days in Chamonix. 850 km and a night later I found myself on the Italian side of the Mt Blanc in Courmayeur. Enrico took us to the traverse of the Aiguilles d'Entrèves. Not very difficult but perfect to acquaint myself again with granite and mixed climbing after a lapse of ... +20 years. The weather was brilliant, blue skies, sun all over and the scenery was +++, pure enjoyment ! The next day the weather was grey and some snow was forecasted. So Enrico took me to Cogne where we climbed the 7 lengths of Ghost Goully. Not a pure icefall, it has some mixed, more mountain-like, character. After hiking back to the village Enrico took me to his favourite pub where we had a tasty piece of pizza and pastry. A Short trip but just what I needed to get some feeling climbing with crampons and ice axes again. This is definitely asking for more and I'm looking forward to the next trip ! Thank you Enrico, Bruno

Calanques guided trad climbing day trips

Me and my dad wanted to book a last minute guided rock climb in the Calanques. We came across Maxence through explore-share and he was very kind as he changed his timetable so that he could take us out at short notice. Me and my dad were a little nervous about rock climbing and Maxence very quickly put us at ease. He was friendly and warm and very encouraging when we were on the rocks. He took us to the most beautiful spot where we were the only ones climbing, and we had an amazing view of the Calanques. He took pictures for us and sent them to us afterwards. He also provided us with all the equipment that we needed and found us suitable routes to climb for our levels. We would recommend Maxence to anyone who wants to find a climbing adventure in the Calanques.

Rock climbing in les Calanques, Marseille

The trip with Robin was awesome! I didn't have a car, so he provided transportation to and back from the climbing spots, which is really nice. The weather in Verdon was not good during the trip, so we ended up climbing some beautiful routes in les Calanques and Cap Canaille. Robin knows the area and the routes well, so he selected the ones that was within my ability but also felt challenging. Robin also took a lot of nice photos along the way, introduced and explained the routes/backgrounds, and helped me feel more comfortable climbing multi-pitch routes (this was my first time). I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants to experience the beauty of south of France from a couple hundreds meters up.

Corsica guided rock climbing day trips

I had amazing 2 days climbing in Corsica with Cédric as my guide. Cédric introduced me to Corsican backcountry that he lovingly called his garden: massive towering mountain, emerald waters of roaring streams, beautiful wild flowers. I highly recommend Cédric to anyone looking for a guide be it Corsica or anywhere else. I miss this incredible place already and look forward to coming back!

Rock climbing in les Calanques, Marseille

The climb with Robin was amazing. We were a group of 3 and he picked us up at the bus station since we didn't have a car. He took us on the route de Cretes which is beautiful, and then climbed les Calanques. The day was perfect and the view was mesmerizing. At the end, he dropped us off at the city center of Cassis since we luckily had the time to visit it. I would definitely recommend the guide, who watched over us and is friendly, and the route which was so beautiful!

Climbing in Chamonix, Mont Blanc Massif

Romain was a great guide in planning and leading the climbs. He was safe, supportive and did not rush so I could enjoy the climbing. Best of all he took some incredible photos in some precarious positions!

Guided climbing tours in the Alps

A great day traversing the Drus from the Charpoua hut. No one on the route that day except us. The weather proved excellent. Perfect guiding and very secure climbing with Pere !

Guided climbing tours in the Alps

Pere was just a fabulous guide. Technically, a very seasoned climber with wealth of knowledge and experience. His style is super friendly and soft, which makes the day absolutely enjoyable. He is super encouraging yet looks at you every second to make sure you're safe and to give you tips here and there. I'll certainly go for another outdoor activity with him again and I can only highly recommend him!

Climbing in Chamonix, Mont Blanc Massif

Excellent grimpeur et guide hors pair, nous avons passé des moments magiques en la présence de Romain lors d'une trilogie Alpine dans le massif du Mont-blanc avec à la clef; la célèbre Rébuffat à l'aiguille du midi, la pointe A.rey et la Pointe Lachenal. On a hâte de gravir le Grand Capucin...en sa compagnie.


 

There are many reasons for choosing Rock Climbing in France

Wherever you choose to climb in France, among its seemingly endless spots, the one constant is its top-quality rock. The Calanques is a limestone massif that stretches across the Mediterranean coast. It is rugged and compact and features a diverse set of surfaces such as cracks, slabs and pinnacles. The Pyrenees provide rough granite boulders that overhang. And Chamonix is home to compact granite and gneiss.

It shares a border with Spain and Andorra to the southwest, Belgium and Luxemburg to the northeast, Germany and Switzerland to the east, and Italy and Monaco to the southeast. Much of its territory is bound by nature: the Pyrenees and the Alps in the south and southeast, while the Rhine cuts through the border to the east
