Located about 70 km southeast from Paris, Fontainebleau is one of the best bouldering destinations in the world. Join us for 1 or more days and discover this bouldering mecca in France with exciting options for everyone.

Bouldering is a style of rock climbing performed on small and low rock formations known as boulders, without using a rope or harness and falling on a mattress. It is rock climbing in its purest form!

The beautiful Fontainebleau forest boasts an impressive variety of sandstone rock boulders of fantastic quality. It suits all abilities, styles and experience levels. You will find from small and easier boulders for children and beginners to overhangs, slabs or aretes that are more challenging.

This world-class bouldering area attracts climbers from all over the world, with its vast amount of chaos or blocks (few meters high rocks) spread over the forest. Despite being a quite small area, you can spend months here and never climb the same boulder sector twice. 

For one or more days, we will take you to several different bouldering areas so you can get a taste of the amazing variety of bouldering problems this beautiful forest has to offer. Whether you are looking to venture into this activity, improve your technique or challenge yourself with a harder bouldering experience, Fontainebleau has something for you.

During our time in Fontainebleau, we will help you with every bouldering aspect, from safety to general climbing techniques and everything you need to know to enjoy your experience and improve your skills. Please note you can climb in Fontainebleau year-round, although the best time is in spring and autumn.

We had a great day with Ivan in Fontainebleau. He was so knowledgeable about the area and its history, and about warming up for effective climbing. We had a lot of fun and climbed some very cool boulders despite the very cold weather.

Thanks again for helping personally to arrange my booking. I had such a fantastic time in Fontainebleau. The trip was everything I could have hoped for. Léo was a fabulous guide, entirely gracious, supportive, and professional. He did an amazing job showcasing a variety of sites and experiences over the course of the trip, so every day there was something different and new. I leave with many great memories, and I am already looking forward to the next opportunity to climb outdoors.

Claire the guide was great and could adapt to the various levels of climbing in the group, while showing us the Fontainebleau playground.. Service experience was flawless with direct contact enabling to identify a guide at very short notice. Thanks for everything!

Léo was a great guide - when the weather forecast was quite poor for our original date, he was very accommodating and flexible, meeting us a day early despite some logistical challenges on our end. Then he was a great guide, showing us around a variety of good boulder problems and helping us understand the local style/ethics.

Great company with easy booking and super service! The climbing instructors/guides we had in Fountainebleau (Ivan, Leo, Jeremy and Damian) were very nice, friendly, flexible, skilled in climbing and teaching (even a big group of 30 people) and difinetly worth a booking! Thank you for a great experience on the boulders!

Gauthier was quick to respond in the initial booking process and answered any and all questions. Closer to our trip, he helpfully set me up with our guide on what’s app so we could discuss the plan. Our guide Ivan in Fountainbleau was fantastic - helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I look forward to working with both explore-share and Ivan again in the future. Would highly recommend.
