Highlights

 
  • Feel the thrill of ice climbing in a breathtaking location.

  • Participate in a custom-made trip for you.

  • Enjoy the stunning Chamonix.

 

Come with me to enjoy a thrilling ice climbing adventure! This fun and exciting activity is perfect for lovers of rock climbing that don’t want to let the winter ruin their time outdoors. And the Chamonix Valley, France is a true paradise for all outdoor activities.

The Chamonix Valley is full of waterfalls that turn into stunning ice climbing spots during the winter. Especially the area close to Cogne Valley, Italy, a true waterfall Mecca. There’s tons of options to choose from for all ice climbing levels, and a variety of forms including columns, bosses, jellyfish, curtains, and free-standing. And, if you decide to stay for more than one day, there are many waterfalls to discover each day.

Ice climbing is an exciting sport but it needs to be taken seriously. It is very important that you follow the correct safety measures. Ice climbing is also my specialty and favorite sport. I’ll make sure to assess the safety of the places we choose before the trip and guide you on the way. 

Send your request and let me organize this wonderful trip just for you! Depending on your goals, skills and time available, I’ll make sure to plan the best itinerary possible.

For more adventures in the French Alps, follow me for a one-day rock climbing tour in Les Perrons or a 2-day mountaineering trip in Aiguille du Tour.

About the Guide

 
 

I started mountaineering at 16 in the Mont Blanc Massif. I immediately loved the diversity of mountain sports: ice, snow, rock, the fact that activities change every season and we must aim for perpetual adaptation. It is the human emotions experienced up there that make me want to progress. 

After 4 years of competition in ice climbing, I joined the French national mountaineering group. Expeditions in the Dolomites, Norway, and Alaska are a great opportunity to travel and excel in a strong group. 

I'm 24 years old and live in Annecy (Haute Savoie), close to the Mont Blanc Massif. I am aspirant guide and it will be my pleasure to share with you my experience on the Aravis' limestone or the snowy slopes of Mont Blanc.

Beyond the classic excursions and the satisfaction of reaching a summit, I would like you to discover the warmth of a sunrise or the joy of a celebratory hug.
