    Come and join me for a thrilling day of mountaineering at Chamonix in the French Alps.

    Home to the First Winter Olympics in 1924, Chamonix is an amazing place. It is home to some of the most famous peaks in the French Alps. From Mont Blanc, to Aiguilles Rouges to Aiguille du Midi. It has a population of less than nine-thousand people. Hence creating the feeling of discovering something small and hidden. When you come here, you feel like you’ve found the X on a treasure map. And believe me, Chamonix is definitely a treasure.

    Perfect for beginners and experienced mountain climbers alike, this French Commune has everything you could want. You can climb gorgeous ridges like the Ladies Ridge and Cosmique Ridge. There is also the Grand Perron Traverse that you can enjoy. You can climb one of the many Ice or Granite Walls. One of the World’s Highest Cable Cars that links the town to the peak of Aiguille du Midi is even here. And there is so much more.

    The scenery you will take in during the day will leave you mesmerised. From the aforementioned peaks, to other peaks such as Aiguille Purtschaler and Aiguille Dorres, to the gorgeous Snow Slopes that look like frozen ocean waves, or desert dunes of pure white. Simply stunning.

    The beauty is so overwhelming here that you will lose track of time. The day will be over before you realised it has even begun. But that’s okay because you can always stay longer and keep exploring all that Chamonix has to offer.

    So come, let me guide you for a full day inside this mountaineering playground, where the rides were millions of years in the making and the views will take your breath away.

    I’ll be awaiting your message.

    I've been skiing and climbing since my early childhood. I graduated in 2005 from the Univerzity of Hradec Kralove with a Master degree at the Faculty of Education. Since then I worked as a history and PE teacher. I was also running an Outdoor sport's club at that time, spending plenty of time climbing, skiing etc. with my students.

    In 2009, I became a full time skiing and climbing instructor.

    Licences:
    2009 – APUL C ski instructor
    2010 – APUL B ski instructor
    2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
    2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)
    – MSMT climbing instructor and Mountain leader
    2013 – entered the UIAGM mountain guide education
    2014 – passed the UIAGM Aspirant exam.
    2015 - Succeeded the UIAGM / IFMGA final exam

    Spending your holiday with you would be my pleasure. Whether in winter on a ski tour (in Czech Republic or Austria) or in summer among the spectacular sandstone towers.

    It will be, with no doubt, a very pleasant experience for all of us. I'm an easygoing, friendly and reliable person with a good sense for responsibility.

    Don't hesitate to get in touch with me !

    Awesome day of climbing provided by Jan. Extremely knowledgeable about the area and a fantastic climber and guide. This trip to Hruboskelsko was amazing in every way and climbing the towers an unbelievable experience. Would highly recommend this trip to all climbers, whether new or experienced.

    Jan was amazing, professional, funny, and inspirational. The way he dealt with us and individuals whilst having a joint venture. The climb was amazing, the route selected was perfect for ability. I proposed to my girlfriend at the summit after that amazing ridge. She said yes, Jan was in on it and accommodated this without sacrificing safety. We look forward to using Jan\'s services again. He was by far the best IMG I have used. Words cannot thank enough for the experience.

    We climbed locally in Turnov, which worked out perfectly. Jan was flexible and professional setting up a meeting spot and drove us to the climbing. He struck a perfect balance of grades and led routes I did not want to lead, and gave \"laser guided beta\" for gear on routes I did lead. We spoke of climbing, history, love, life, and politics while enjoying beautiful scenery. His local knowledge was obvious and enhanced the whole trip. While Czech sandstone is not for the faint of heart, Jan made this side of climbing very accessible and pleasurable far beyond my expectations. 10/10. If this trip is of interest to you, book with complete confidence.
