Description

The village resort of Engelberg is located in the canton of Obwalden in Switzerland. Near some of the Swiss Alps‘ most beautiful peaks, this resort area is a lovely place to visit and explore. The area is also home to some great ice climbing spots. And on this trip, I would like to guide you to some beautiful ice falls that you will get to spend the entire day climbing.

There is a large variety of potential climbing spots in the Engelberg region. As a result, this trip is open to ice climbing beginners as well as experts. No matter what kind of experience you are looking for, or are qualified for, there is a great ice fall route just waiting for you to climb. There are also top rope and lead routes available as well.

Along with the thrilling experience you will get during this ice climbing trip, you will also get to enjoy some magnificent views. That is because Engelberg is surrounded by several gorgeous Swiss cantons, including Bern, Uri and Nidwalden. Hence making this trip a great addition to any vacation in the Swiss Alps.

All participants on this trip should be in good physical condition. You should also have prior gym climbing experience as well.

So if you are a first timer at ice climbing, or are looking for another ice fall to conquer, this trip is perfect for you. And because I like to wait until just a few days before the trip to pick the right spot, I can assure you that your experience will be unforgettable. To join me, just send me a request.

Very user friendly platform with timely responses from Explore Share representatives. The trip itself with Tom from Alps Adventures was awesome and ensure that we had an experience that was 100% what we wanted. Recommend both the platform and the guide. Thanks to all for arranging and delivering so well.

I had am amazing time during the 1-day off-piste training course at Hoch-Ybrig. Urs, our main mountain guide, was very helpful in answering my queries before the course, and Lupe from explore-share was helpful in selecting the course. We had 3 groups under Urs, Mario and Patrick, and I was in the group with Patrick. He gave us a lot of nice tips and individualized video analysis. He made a special effort to convey everything in English, since I don't know German. All the participants were very helpful and friendly too! The course is good value for money as skis are included for the weekend in the course price.
