Come join Jon, an IFMGA certified guide, on this 6-day Chamonix mountaineering course. And learn the secrets of the Alps while enjoying the great scenery!

Not specified


6 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




This 6-day Chamonix mountaineering course is designed for those who want to get into the magical world of the 4000 m mountains in the Alps.

This means to start learning about glacier crossing and dealing with altitude problems. But it’s a proposal for climbers of all levels, not just beginners. You may have experience mountaineering somewhere else, but the Alps have their own secrets.

And while I’ll take you to places with amazing views and sceneries, I’ll be also teaching you the right techniques to progress through different terrains. Also, safety lessons will be a great part of the course.

Chamonix is the perfect place for an introduction to mountaineering in the Alps. Because it has the comforts of this amazing town, plus an extraordinary scenery of mountains and glaciers.

So I've prepared an itinerary for any level of experience. But this is just one of the options that you can chose from. If you want to, we can fix the itinerary for your desires.

So please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. I’ll get everything ready for you to enjoy this 6-day Chamonix mountaineering course. 

And if you’d like to check out some of my other programs, please take a look at my Carros de Foc guided trekking tour or my Midi d’Ossau rock climbing program.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
