Description

Have you ever wanted to go on a private guided climbing excursion in the Alps? If yes, join me on this week-long, guided alpine climb through some of the North faces of the Alps!

In this week-long excursion we will take on some of the Alps' most classic North faces. Possible routes include the Pigne d'Arolla, Lenzspitz, Breithorn, Gran Paradiso, and many others, all of which will make you feel like a tiny fly on a towering wall.

We have specific dates for this trip in the very beginning and very end of the season in order to take advantage of the colder temperatures, which enables us to climb on a more powdered mountain. And with a 1:1 guide ratio, you are in for a treat!

We ask that in order to participate on a trip like this, you have some previous mountaineering and climbing experience on similar mountains, such as in the Alps or Scotland. And please make sure that you are in great physical shape so that you can enjoy all that this trip has in store. There is also a discount offered for a group of 2 people of the same physical capabilities, but bear in mind that the itinerary might change a bit.

Request to book this trip if you have always wanted to scale the North faces of the Alps!

Accommodation

Various mountain huts throughout our ascents as well as the Chalet "Chemin des Etoiles" with our own staff who prepare fabulous home cooking and baking. We also have 3 twin rooms with private balconies in apartment "Beau Séjour" nearby.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
