Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec
Situated in a narrow side valley of the Aosta Valley, Cogne is the perfect spot for all kinds of ice climbing adventures!
Over the course of our day together, we will head out into the stunning mountain scenery around the town and make an unforgettable ascent up a local icefall.
Cogne sits just north of Gran Paradiso National Park and offers easy access (along with a stunningly scenic approach) to some of the park's – and Europe's – most famous icefalls.
Based on the prevailing weather conditions and state of the icefalls, we will choose just one of the many diverse options and make our ascent.
There is no feeling quite like climbing on the ice, meticulously making your way to the top. Once we are at the zenith of the icefall, we will be sure to enjoy some of Italy's most gorgeous alpine scenery, before making an exciting descent back down.
So what are you waiting for? Book now for this scenic, challenging and fun 1-day ice climbing adventure from Cogne!
If you like the look of this trip, but wanted to spend a bit more time out on the ice, then I think you may also enjoy my 1+ day variation of this ice climbing trip in Cogne!

Mountain guide since 2006, born and grown in Aosta Valley, cradle of mountaineering.
In addition to the mountains at home (Mont Blanc, Matterhorn and Gran Paradiso) I was lucky to be able to make several expeditions to the most beautiful mountains in the world (Antarctica, Alaska, Yosemite, Patagonia, Bolivia, Nepal, Pakistan, etc.).
I like to convey to those who are tied to my rope, the passion that I have for the mountain and my experience.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
