Description

Ice climbing in winter is an ephemeral luxury. Every winter the ice returns, slowly thickens, stabilizes and creates a new climbing wall. Those who have already practiced ice climbing know it from the first day: we come back to ice climbing, as snow comes back in winter!

But if you’ve never tried it before, you may imagine a terrifying activity, during which you are so cold that it is impossible to enjoy yourself. This 1-day ice climbing course will show you how wrong you are! We will enjoy a fun and exciting day on the ice, without fear and without cold!

You need to be in good physical condition to take this course and some rock climbing experience is definitely helpful. However, no technical skills are required.

Additionally, a maximum of 4 people can take this course together. Bear in mind that this ice climbing course is even suitable for children over 12 years old. So come as a family and enjoy an unforgettable day together!

What are the best ice climbing spots in the Hautes Alpes? We have several options to choose from: Le Vallon du Fournel, Vallouise/Pelvoux, Freissinières vallée and, finally, Ceillac. We will choose our destination depending on ice conditions.

A half-day option is also possible. See the “Extra information” section for more info.

Come from December to March to practice ice climbing in the Hautes Alps. So contact me and we’ll start planning for a fun day on the ice!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
