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.
