Type of Trip
Join me on this ice climbing program in Cogne, in the beautiful Aosta Valley. This is one of the best spots in Europe for this fantastic winter mountaineering activity. Join me for a 1-day or multiple-day program!
As an IFMGA mountain guide from Val d’Aosta, I love bringing my clients and friends to Cogne to experience a good time on amazing ice falls.
Cogne is a perfect spot for ice climbing. It is accessible for every skill level, from beginners to experienced ice climbers. I will be happy to give you the basics if you have never done it before. If you are experience already, I will focus on giving you the right tips to improve, and allow you to be autonomous.
This program includes both theoretical and practical sessions. I will adapt the program to the time you have available, and your goals.
The duration of this program can be adjusted to your availability and goals. For programs of 2 or more days, I recommend staying in the charming Ondezana hotel in Cogne, a perfect base camp for the ice climbers.
We will be climbing walls of a minimum of 150 meters high by 2.
In order to ensure maximum safety, groups on this program are of up to 4 guests.
If you would like to have a first-hand account, have a look at this article in which 2 Belgian climbers share their experience of climbing with me back in January 2017.
I look forward to having you in one of my tours very soon!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
I recommend the Ondezana hotel in Cogne for programs of 2 days or more
