    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.

    Mathis is a very knowledgeable guide. We made great time and learned a fair amount about moving fast in Alpine terrain.

    Skiing from Aguille du Midi down to Chamonix has been an experience of a lifetime. We enjoyed the Valle Blanche breathtaking views all the way down and the best route and ski conditions we could ever had! Our guide provided us with the avalanche material and safety information prior to start the run and shared his knowledge and skiing advice with us during the day. We\'d 100% recommend the activity and our experienced guide Mathis! Having him guiding us made it an incredible day. Thank you so much for the unforgettable adventure!!
