Take an adventure to the French Alps with a certified guide and explore Chamonix on a mountaineering program on some of the most magnificent mountains of Europe and the world.
Jul, Aug, Sep
In the southeast of France, on the border with Italy and Switzerland, Chamonix operates as a beacon for adventurers and world travelers. Beckoning sports enthusiasts from every corner of the globe, it sits in a valley below the notorious peaks that meet at the intersection of these three Alpine countries. The Chamonix region has access, snow quality, geological works of art, and the climbing culture to accompany these qualities to make it the pinnacle of mountaineering.
There is an abundance of thrilling and fascinating routes up and down the mountains, enough for more than a lifetime of dedicated mountaineering. Placed in the center of this mountain masterpiece, you will benefit from a flexible program that wants nothing more than to make your dream climbing program a reality. The endless supply of remarkable routes will satisfy every level of alpinist – even children – and the overall aesthetics of the Alps will leave you breathless.
Ascending Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn are top priorities to many climbers and we can carve out a program for a day or more on a plethora of snow, ice, and rock. Your adventure can focus on a specific climbing objective or it can include a wide array of techniques and landscapes to give you access to the entire region.
Remote areas are well within reach from the steep valley. Wonderful alpine scenery accompanies the approaches and the climbs, including pristine lakes and peaceful meadows. You will dig in to mountain villages, like Les Gailland, and learn the ropes of glacier travel along immaculate terrain such as the Bosson Glacier and Vallee Blanche. The more experience and technique you bring to the rock, the more options you have.
Mixed climbing destinations like Cosmiques Arete and the indomitable Pyramid Du Tacul are fan favorites, while seasoned climbers can expect the challenging Entreves and Chere Couloir as heart-pumping objectives. Other possible mountaineering trips include Aig’ Du Midi, Dent de Geant, and so much more.
This area is world renowned for a reason and I would be honored to share it with you. I can ensure you have a safe and satisfying program that will help you progress as a climber and cross the Alps off your bucket list.
There are great climbs for everyone, so all levels are welcome. A general level of fitness and fortitude will help you get the most out of this trip.

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!

We had a fantastic time with our guide and the horses at the stables in Les Houches. Everything was perfectly organised - thank you - we ill be back.
We are so happy we got the chance to have a guided session at Fontainebleau with the E-S Guide team. They were super helpful and responsive, getting me and my climbing partner set up with a trip with <48 hours turnaround from first contact. We worked with Jèrèmie, who was top notch - he knew the area really well and was able to guide both of us to top multiple routes. He met us where we were at with our climbing ability, and was extremely creative at suggesting alternative beta and helping us through problems. THANK YOU!
