Enrico, an IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide, has vast experience in climbing the most difficult faces of the Alps, and the Eiger North Face is no exception. Join him and enjoy a great 2 to 3 days climb on the highest wall of the region.



2 Days

Mar, Apr, Oct, Nov, Dec




  • Enjoy climbing the Eiger North Face, a mythical peak in the Alps.
  • Participate in an exciting and challenging climb with an expert.
  • Put your mountaineering skills to practice on an exciting and daunting climb.


The famous 1800 m Eiger North face is the highest wall of the Alps and a mythical mountain challenge for those who are well-prepared and brave!

Historically, the North Face of the Eiger was always regarded as a daunting feat. However, nowadays the Eiger North Face is a perfect climbing option during autumn and springtime. The cold weather and resulting snow and ice enable the rocks to remain stuck to the mountain. And although you will need some technical climbing experience and solid fitness, this guided climb will allow you to enjoy the thrill of climbing Eiger safely.

As your mountain guide, I will carefully review all factors, as well as your technical climbing level before deciding on the right climbing objectives. In order to ensure your safety, you will first need to take the “north faces of the Alps training program” before joining the Eiger climb. This will allow us to get to know each other and for me to assess your climbing level. Furthermore, you will gain the necessary technical skills.  On the preparation training program, we will go through some smaller test climbs and might climb routes such as Aiguille VerteSupercouloir du Tacul, or some gullies on the north face of the Aiguille du Midi, etc. Read more about climbing the north faces of the Alps here

In addition to the excitement that climbing the Eiger North Face generates, I always recommend this 2 to 3 days program because:

  • It is the biggest face of the entire Alps.

  • It is one of the most famous mountaineering routes in history. Many stories have been written about ascents on the North Face of Eiger.

  • The climbing line is logical and very elegant.

So, are you brave enough to tackle the challenging Eiger? Then send me a request and let’s start planning this exciting adventure! I will be glad to lead you up the biggest wall of the Alps.

If you’d like to climb up another gorgeous North face in the Swiss Alps, you can also join me on this 3-day north face expedition to the top of  Matterhorn.

About the guide

My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.

Spend 4 days with Enrico - training for a north face attempt next year. Enrico was a superb guide across all aspects - technical skills, coaching skills and all round mountaineering skills. Enrico‘s experience in the Alps is second to none and I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 days - which Enrico planned to cover a range of skills and exposure including ice climbing, dry tooling, multi pitch mixed routes and on day 4 we were ‘blessed’ with a storm high up on ‘Via dai Cristallieri’ - what a great challenge to finish the 4 days. I’m addition.to being a phenomenal climber and teacher - Enrico was a perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. I had the pleasure to stay in Arvier, at Enrico and Ilaria’s fantastic B&B - Maison de la Montagne. Overall I would highly recommend Enrico as a guide and tutor for the mountains and also Explore Share for linking me up.

Fantastic Guide! Friendly, fun and competent. In preparation for our planned tour, we did a couple of outings. Enrico is just top! He takes time to assess the condition of the mountain and the technical ability of the guest to decide the best course. One always feels safe with Enrico. In addition to above he is just a great all-round guy to hang out with. I look forward to many more trips with him!

Learning from Enrico for the week was exceptional. He has a fantastic knowledge of the area and local valleys as well as places further afield. He is very talented with his own climbing ability and safety knowledge and he was able to explain clearly and show multiple different techniques for rope-work, safety and climbing. He formulated a very good plan which was flexible depending on weather conditions and he made us feel at ease with his professionalism. I am looking forward to climbing with him again in the future!

Climbing with Enrico was awesome. He was super easy to be around and picked awesome climbs that are some of the most memorable I have ever done. I would climb with again in a heartbeat. Always made me feel included and it was a great partnership. We climbed a bunch of ice together in Cogne, mostly day trips. The best climb we did was the North Face of the Tour Ronde and a bunch of routes on the east face of Mont Blanc du tacul.

I climbed several icefalls in Valle D'Aosta and various climbs on the Mont Blanc massif with Enrico. The last climb was on sull'Ago di Money waterfall in Val Nontey waterfall in Cogne where, as always, the output was aimed at achieving autonomy and acquiring every possible technique to ensure the maximum on security. The conditions of the waterfall included several passages mixed with delicate ice. Enrico's advice and teaching allowed me to move first in this new situation. Of course, always maintaining an atmosphere of friendship and serenity. I have overcome some of my limits with great satisfaction.

Enrico is a mountaineering expert. I did many tours, summits and expeditions with him over the past 15 years Not only does he know the environment, but he is also technically very proficient, which is very comforting when the going gets tougher. He is a very safe guide, does not take chances as he wants both of us to get back home safely! And he likes to share and explain every decision he makes. Every outing with Enrico is a 5 star experience.
