Freissinieres is positioned like a hidden gem in the Hautes-Alpes region of France. Located within a large valley, this  commune rests in between a great deal of beautiful natural sights. There is a dense forest on one side, and rocky landscape on the other. There are rivers and lakes that include Faravel and Palluel. And there are several peaks looming above, including Felix Neff (3,243m), Petit Pinier (3,100m) and the Grand Pinier (3,117m).

To put it simply, Freissinieres is a beautiful place.

And the purpose of this trip is to give you the chance to enjoy a full day of ice climbing in that beautiful place.

There are a number of ice falls in Freissinieres that form in the winter months. Each one is wonderfully unique, and presents its own challenges and thrills. The advantage of that kind of variety is that we will get to figure out exactly which ice fall will suit you best, based on your skill level, fitness level, and wishes. But regardless of what you choose, throughout the day, you will get to scale a beautiful ice fall. And whenever you look around, you will also get to marvel at the spectacular scenery that Freissinieres has to offer.

I will make sure that your experience is enjoyable from start to finish. I will also make sure that you feel safe at all times. And finally, I will do my best to try to teach you all I can, so your next ice climbing adventure will be even better!

So send me a request, and let me guide on an ice climbing adventure in the lovely French commune of Freissinieres.

I offer several other ice climbing adventures in the Hautes-Alpes region of France. They include this trip at La Grave, this trip at Ceilac, and this trip at Briancons, which is designed for beginners.

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide from Les Hautes Alpes. I'm based very close to the National Park of Queyras.
I was born in a farm in Haute Savoie. I grew up with cows and when I was 1 1/2 years old, I climbed my first mountain...Nooo, I'm just kidding !
I come from Paris and I actually started sailing before mountaineering. I studied in a business school and I realized few years later that actually, my passion was not to sit behind a computer all day but to guide friends and clients in the mountains.
I now live in Les Hautes Alpes and I'll be happy to bring you up there and let you live an unique time. So please contact me and let's start planning a mountain trip you would like to do, during the winter or the summer, for 1/2 or several days !
