Join rock climbing instructor Ivan for a fantastic bouldering adventure in the Fontainebleau forest, near Paris, France for one or more days.
Enjoy some great bouldering in the Fontainebleau forest of France.
Located less than an hour away from Paris.
Perfect for beginners just learning or experienced climbers looking to improve.
Bouldering is a great way to not only get some wonderful exercise, but to access great views. And the views in the Fontainbleau forest are absolutely stunning!
Along with being a lot of fun, and wonderfully scenic, this trip is also very educational. If you are a beginner I will spend a great deal of time sharing with you the basics necessary for fun and safe outdoor bouldering. And if you have prior bouldering experience, I will also help you improve on your existing skills and techniques. Thus ensuring by the end of the trip you will be a better climber than you were when the trip started.
While this trip is open to people of all skill levels, due to the physical nature of it, participants should be in good physical condition.
One of the best places for bouldering in the world, Fontainebleau offers a different experience every time you visit, any time of the year. So If you would like to enjoy it for yourself, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.
Are you interested in doing some tree climbing in France? Then come and join me on this half-day trip in beautiful Laborel.
There are a number of comfortable accommodation options in Paris, which is less than 60 kilometers away from Fontainebleau. There are also special in forest accommodation options that I would be happy to recommend to you as well.
Other gear: Shoes, chalk, snacks.
I hold a state certificate in Climbing in Natural Environments (DEJEPS) and I'm also certified in Tree Climbing. I regularly take people to climb trees and spend the night on a hammock at the top, in the middle of the forest!
I'm also a certified Feldenkrais practitioner. Felden Method is a way to improve motor skills leading to more pleasure while practicing your favorite activity but also a tool to seek performance, get rid of pains or regain confidence after an injury. As I'm aware of the way you're moving, I can guide you towards a better movement. If you like, we can start or finish the day on a yoga mat.
Join me for a fantastic experience in nature!
Ivan was very mindful with different characters of the large group. Ivan is a very experienced boulderer and could share his knowledge in an easy way to give a good start to the group. Furthermore he took pictures and give helpful advises for the rest of our trip.
The traveller did not leave a comment.
Ivan is very nice and friendly, he is very experienced and gave great advice, while adapting to different levels and ages. He knows perfectly the Fontainebleau site which is a great spot for climbing. Excellent experience which we recommend for family trip.
La sortie s\'est très bien déroulée, étant débutant Ivan a su me guider dans la découverte de l\'escalade, en sécurité et avec le sourire.
Sortie de rêve! La pédagogie d’Ivan permet à chacun d’explorer en liberté , tout en se sentant en sécurité! Tip top!
Ivan was a DREAM of a guide! Very very knowledgable, safe, motivated and patient. Also super fun. Just the best day climbing and Ivan was everything that I wanted in a guide. 5 stars!
This website was perfect as I was in Paris for only a few days and wanted to go bouldering in Fontainebleau. I tried booking a guide last minute and Explore-Share hooked me up with Ivan Houppertz who was the BEST guide ever! Did a whole circuit in five hours and he was patient, very good at teaching, safe and motivating. I cannot imagine a better guide!
My 2 sons had an amazing time bouldering in Fontainebleu. Thanks so much Ivan
Our experience with Gauthier and Ivan was fantastic. Our day bouldering in Fontainebleau would have not been nearly enjoyable without them. Communication was fluid. They were very attentive to our needs and flexible to make sure our session was a success. Both are very knowledgeable and personable. We certainly recommend their services to anyone searching for a wonderful bouldering experience. We cannot wait for our next trip. Merci à vous deux.
J\'ai passé une journée formidable avec Ivan ! Il a encore plus a partager au-delà de l\'escalade. Merci Ivan, avec gratitude.
Great day with Ivan at Fontainebleau. Hundreds of boulders for any level of climbing. I liked the way Ivan setup our route: from easier climbs to harder. He helped me with the boulders I have struggled with and gave me a lot of good tips and techniques.
J’ai fait une sortie à Fontainebleau avec Ivan au secteur Cuisinière en mai 2019. C’était une super journée. Je grimpe en salle deux fois par semaine depuis plusieurs années, mais avec lui j’ai fait des progrès spectaculaires en une journée. Ivan connait très bien la forêt et les spots, et il a su choisir des blocs adaptés à mon niveau.
Our day trip to Fontainebleau with Ivan was fantastic. We were a mixed family group of adults and teenagers, some with climbing experience and others without. Ivan did a great job ensuring we were all challenged and supported in the many climbs we undertook on the boulders. He was an excellent instructor, particularly for our young people, and we had great fun with him. His English was very good too which helped us enormously and we were particularly happy with his safety awareness. We\'re looking forward to another trip with Ivan multi-pitch climbing in Spring.
