Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
Climb into the European sky and take on the tallest mountain in the Alps on a six-day guided mountaineering program with training and acclimatization! Get used to the equipment and the terrain for a few days before heading to the peak of Mont Blanc and reaching its summit 4,810 meters high!
Located in the southeast of France up from Chamonix, Mont Blanc towers over the Italian border and beckons to mountain climbers and alpinists across the globe. Its 4,810-meter summit is an absolute must for climbers who want to test their might and look out across Western Europe from its highest point. With a number of mountain huts and routes, it is a favorite in the climbing community for its mixed climbing and outstanding views.
If you have always dreamt of reaching this peak, here is your chance! Come with me on a fun and rewarding trip to the top, starting with some practice runs in the region to set us up for success. I will lead you on a safe introduction to the greater Chamonix area, teaching and revisiting techniques and skills on modest objectives. After we have spent a few days getting accustomed to the height and the equipment, we will load up for an attempt at Mont Blanc.
Our trip will begin near Chamonix with a great introductory climb of Arete des Cosmiques or a comparable objective. After a night in Chamonix, we will dive into the “hut life” while mastering our climbing skills. Our focus for the first three days will be on equipment use, rock movement, climbing technique, and the fundamental tools you will need for a successful run at our main objective.
On day four, we will put our plan into motion and head for the summit of Mont Blanc. This will be a three day climb that is challenging, exhilarating, and completely rewarding. My experience and preparation will ensure we have a safe and satisfying climb where you can focus on having a blast. You will walk on glaciers, grapple with roping techniques, buff up on crampon skills, and so much more.
This is a serious sustained climb, so you should be in good physical shape and have basic crampon and climbing experience. You should also be mentally prepared for a six-day journey into the heights of the Alps.
So what are you waiting for? Book this six-day Mont Blanc ascent with training and acclimatization NOW and give yourself a complete Alpine experience on an iconic French peak!

Fantastic coaching and an incredible experience! Thank you Gauthier for helping to make it happen. We’ll stay in touch for future excursions
This was an adventure of a lifetime. Guillaume was an awesome guide that tailored the experience to our skills. He was personable and we had so much fun. The team is professional, punctual, and communicative! Loved our experience!
It was a great climbing day on almost a vertical rock about 70 meters high. Willy is the best guide I ever met in my life, and without him I wouldn't make it.
Rebecca and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with Stephane and his wife. They were amazing guides.
We had a great experience with Willy Viez in Wallonie. He shared a lot of useful knowledge with us about alpine rock climbing, especially about lead climbing. His pointers and real life examples turned out to be essential on the following day when we tried to climb an easy route on our own (no quick draws were left behind). Willy assisted us in a way that resulted in great personal accomplishments for the day and he surely helped us to feel more at ease around real rocks. We are very happy with this adventure that has a long lasting after effect.
Really enjoyed our day rock climbing in Les Calanques. Great routes and our guide was prepared, very flexible in terms of what we’d like to do and which levels he could do with us. The communication beforehand was a little unclear since I expected an email and didn’t quite get that I’d have to access the web application of explore share. Nothing major, just could be explained clearer in the email.

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.
My daughter has had a fantastic time at with the horses this week, perfectly organised by Explore-share. We are so grateful to Gauthier for making it all a fantastic experience, thank you!! We will be back.
I booked a private shinrin yoku session with Explore-Share, but unfortunately their guide was injured and couldn't do it. Gauthier had been very helpful, quick to communicate and agreed to work with another guide he'd never met. All went well. My first forest bath guided by Magda was powerful and I appreciated the experience so much. She was calm, reassuring, and led all the invitations smoothly and sensitively. An eye-opening experience that will be fondly remembered.
The lift to the via ferrata des Evettes was closed so we did the via ferrata de curalla in Passy. Was a great day!
Our guide, Claire, was very friendly, knowing and responsive and helped us to dive into an outdoor bouldring for the first time - exactly what we were looking for

Yesterday was amazing. Olivier is a world class climber and has a natural ability to quickly assess my level and coach me to exceed what I thought I could do. He was very focused on making sure I was safe. Climbing with Olivier yesterday has had a deep impact on my life as a climber. An excellent climbing guide!
