Description

Come and join me in this incredible adventure of discovering the Goulottes’ routes, in the French Alps! You will have the amazing opportunity to witness the magnificence of the Mt Blanc range with your own eyes.

The Goulottes are fantastic high-altitude icy itineraries. You can only traverse them during the cold winter time. Here is where the phrase “ice-climbing” takes shape.

Get yourselves ready to encounter peace, silence, loneliness. Most importantly, at the Goulottes you will face a rollercoaster of intense emotions. I assure you that you will return home after the adventure completely satisfied and satiated.

You can select the duration of the ice climbing trip, either 1 or 2 days. Also, some spectacular itineraries you can choose to climb are:

  • In the Mt Blanc du Tacul: Cheré, Lafaille, Valeria, Modica Noury and Gabarrou/Albinoni

  • The Tour Ronde: Delafosse/Perroux or Rebuffat

  • The Aiguille du Midi: Vogler or Vent du Dragon

Join me even if you have little climbing experience. Don’t hesitate and come since for this excursion, you just need to have some basic ice climbing progression knowledge (Piolet-Traction). 

We will discover the Goulottes’ itineraries in groups of 2 people maximum. In this way, I can make sure your awaited Alpine visit and my guide to be high quality and personalized as well as safe.

Remember that it is always very important that you follow my instructions when we adventure into the Goulottes’ icy routes. And also, to respect any change in the schedule since its aim is to guarantee your safety during the trip.

Come with me and you will enjoy every second of the Mt Blanc’s Goulottes adventure together. I guarantee you it will be a wonderful trip you will not forget. I’ll be waiting for your contact. It will be a great pleasure to accompany you through this unique mountain adventure.
