Courmayeur 3-day mountaineering course for kids | undefined

A great chance in Courmayeur to encourage children to venture into mountaineering and alpine life. The instructor will be a local IFMGA mountain guide.


3 Days

Jun - Aug



Welcome to an introductory high mountain course for children! A 3-day learning adventure open to everyone between 8 and 12 years old that want to learn how to move on glaciers and climbing routes. Courmayeur is the perfect environment for such an exciting experience.

During this 3-day course, kids will be provided with all the theoretical and practical information they need to carry out alpine hiking and climbing activities.

As for the itinerary we’ll meet up in Courmayeur, from where we’ll drive to the cablecar that leads to the Helbronner Peak at 3440 meters of height. During this day we’ll practice some glacier walking and then return to Courmayeur in the afternoon.

On day 2 we’ll meet up at the same place to start our training of the day: alpine climbing! Back to Courmayeur.

On day 3, after meeting up we’ll go to the Mont Blanc cablecar station and then, up to the Helbronner Mountain again. More glacier walking and a rewarded mountain climb to the Vierge Summit (3325m).

Without a doubt it will be an unforgettable experience for them and why not, the starting point towards the development of new skills.

Encourage them from a young age! Send your request to book the trip for next departures in June, July and August.

What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



Paolo made the ski trip a total success in difficult conditions. His knowledge and enthusiasm are worth the investment to get the max from this ski area. Thanks again



Perfect experience with a wonderful guide



We loved our guide and our adventure. She was very accommodating to our needs and nice to be around. I would totally book with explore share again.



We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.



I had a truly fantastic experience with Gabriele from PeaksHunter. He was a very experienced, careful guide. He was very considerate and encouraging and I was very fortunate to have this climbing experience with PeaksHunter.
