For 2 days, climb to 2 different summits in the Dauphine Alps of France, the Barre des Ecrins and the Dome de Neige, with UIAGM certified guide Philipp.



2 Days

Jun - Oct




* Climb to the summits of the Barre des Ecrins and the Dome de Neige.

* Traverse a glacier.

* Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Dauphine Alps in France.


During this short, 2 day expedition, we will be venturing to 2 of the southernmost, 4,000 meter plus peaks in the Alps. In fact, we will be venturing into the Dauphine Alps of France, as we make our way to the summits of Barre des Ecrins (4,102m) and the Dome de Neige (4,015m).

Not only is the landscape around the Barre des Ecrins and the Dome de Neige spectacular, but you will also get to enjoy traversing on a glacier.

Our trip will begin at the Pre de Mme Carle. From there, we will go to the Refuge Des Ecrins (3,175m), where we will spend the night. On the second day, we will make our way to the summits of both the Barre des Ecrins and the Dome de Neige before returning to the Pre de Mme Carle. Thus concluding the adventure.

While not extremely difficult, the 2 climbs we will be enjoying will still have some tough spots. As a result, you should be an experienced climber. You should also be in good physical condition.

Beautiful and exciting, the Dauphine Alps of France are a great place to explore and enjoy. And it would be my pleasure to guide you to the top of 2 of the area’s best peaks: the Barre des Ecrins and the Dome de Neige. To join me on this trip, just send me a request.

I also offer a 4 day trip in the Swiss Alps that will take you to the summits of Taschorn and Dom.

Mountain Guide

I'm a professional UIAGM mountain guide who works all over the world and has an addiction for traveling and working in many different places. I live in the southern part of Bavaria/Germany in a beautiful region called Allgäu. It's the perfect location to explore the Alps.

I work as a guide year-round and I love spending time with my clients in the mountains. Fulfilling their dreams and sharing beautiful moments together is what motivates me to do a great job every day.

I have spent a lot of time in the mountains since I was a kid. Mountaineering, climbing, ice climbing and running have always been a big part of my life and I hope to continue for many more years.

I was part of the German National Ski Mountaineering Team and have competed in all major global races, including Pierra Menta, PDG, Mezzalama, Tour du Rutor etc. I participated in many Worldcup races as well. This experience was very important for my guiding career in terms of motivation, knowledge and experience!

I guide my clients all over the world. I'll take you anywhere you want to go and we can reach a mountaineering goal together.

Please get in touch with me if you're interested in one of my programs or want to discuss a particular goal you have in the mountains. It will be a pleasure to make you an offer and discuss projects and plans for the future.

Hope to see YOU in the mountains.

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
