I invite you to a 1-day ice climbing course in the frozen waterfalls of Switzerland. Ice climbing is a very special activity, quite sporty in nature and related to rock climbing.

Are you an absolute beginner in this discipline, looking to get a taste of this unique sport? Are you already in love with ice climbing? In any case, we can go and explore together the crazy frozen walls!

In Switzerland we can find routes on frozen waterfalls with all degrees of difficulty. Therefore, do not hesitate to ask me for a specific program according to your level or the average level of your group.

As you might already know, each winter the water freezes in a unique way, creating ephemeral and ever-changing playgrounds. I will decide the exact location shortly before the trip, trying to keep it within the area of Engelberg, in the Obwalden Canton.

Ice climbing is a naturally extreme sport. Although we can do the program under all weathers, the conditions might force me to modify or cancel it. After all, we depend on the ice!

If you book through Explore-Share, I will provide rental equipment for free.

Interested in trying ice climbing for the first time, or improving your skills for a day? Then book this trip and let’s go together next winter!
