Type of Trip
Come with me and enjoy a full day of what I think is the best activity I can offer. And that is ice climbing in Chamonix.
The best word I would use to describe ice climbing is unique. Because that is exactly what it is. While it utilises all of the same skills as rock climbing, ice climbing is completely different. Because unlike the secure, stone surface of a mountain, or ridge, when you are ice climbing, you are scaling a frozen wave of water. However, that is what makes this activity so special. The fact that the surface, like the activity itself, is never the same, and is always different, from one day to the next, or even one hour to the next, depending on the weather conditions.
In Chamonix, there is no shortage of beautiful areas to ice climb. And I will make sure that you get to climb up some of the most incredible ice falls you will ever. Also, all of the equipment needed for the climb will be provided. So all you have to worry about is bringing your excitement and wonder. Qualities I know will be increased ten fold when you see and start climbing the icy surfaces Chamonix has to offer.
So come and enjoy a full day of amazing ice climbing. While also keeping in mind that throughout the day you will have ample opportunity to stop and gaze at the sheer beauty of the French Alps. While scaling a sheet of sheer ice.
I look forward to hearing from you.
And if you are looking for more thrills in the Chamonix area. You can also join me for a day of Via Ferrata on this trip. Where you can admire the legendary Mont Blanc mountain.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
