Are you visiting Paris? Are you enjoying the beautiful, cosmopolitan city? Of course you are. It’s a sensational place. Hence why it is visited by people from all over the world. But are you looking to escape the city for a short time? Would you like to enjoy a fun, outdoor experience less than an hour away from Paris? If so, this half-day bouldering trip in the nearby Fontainebleau forest is for you!

The Fontainebleau forest is gorgeous. Full of lush flora and fauna, as well as great views of the wide reaching area, it will make you feel as if not just Paris, but any city, is a million miles away. However, remarkably, the French capital is actually less than 60 kilometers away.

This trip is open to people of all skill levels. It is even open to children. Thus making it the perfect excursion for the family! However, for those people who are looking for a physical challenge, there are more difficult bouldering options for you as well.

Along with making this trip as fun as possible, I will also see to it you learn as much about bouldering as possible as well. I will teach you new techniques, or help you improve the skills you already have. Either way, by the end of this short trip in Fontainebleau, you will leave a better boulder climber than you were when you arrived.

To join me on this great half-day trip, just send me a request. I know you’ll have an amazing time.

About the Guide


I hold a state certificate in Climbing in Natural Environments (DEJEPS) and I'm also certified in Tree Climbing. I regularly take people to climb trees and spend the night on a hammock at the top, in the middle of the forest!

I'm also a certified Feldenkrais practitioner. Felden Method is a way to improve motor skills leading to more pleasure while practicing your favorite activity but also a tool to seek performance, get rid of pains or regain confidence after an injury. As I'm aware of the way you're moving, I can guide you towards a better movement. If you like, we can start or finish the day on a yoga mat.

Join me for a fantastic experience in nature!

This website was perfect as I was in Paris for only a few days and wanted to go bouldering in Fontainebleau. I tried booking a guide last minute and Explore-Share hooked me up with Ivan Houppertz who was the BEST guide ever! Did a whole circuit in five hours and he was patient, very good at teaching, safe and motivating. I cannot imagine a better guide!
