Description

I offer several ice climbing outings in Tarentaise, around Tignes and Val d’Isère. I propose several options from a half day for beginners to a course of several days. A unique option is a nocturnal discovery lit by spotlights. 

Ice is a fascinating material due to its texture, colours and ephemeral properties. Ice climbing is practiced mainly on a water cascade that has been frozen by the cold.

This activity has become accessible to everyone due to the advances of the climbing equipment during the last years. The technique is similar to rock climbing. But here, we move vertically with ice axes and crampons. The ice structures will remain there for a couple of weeks or months.

I propose to you the following program, among others.

1/2 day or full day discovery:

  • Locations= Cascade of Roger Valley’s at Brévières next to Tignes, Ice Tour in Champagny or Cascade of the Daille (between Val d’Isère and Tignes)

  • Prerequisites: none

  • Price

    • From 220€ 1/2 day for a group of up to 6 people*

    • From 330€ 1 day for a group of up to 6 people*

1 day initiation:

  • Locations= integral Cascade of the Daille (between Val d’Isère and Tignes), Cascade of the Echaillon (between Tignes and Sainte Foy)

  • Prerequisite: 1 or 2 discovery outings

  • Price= From 320€ for 2 people*

1 day improvement:

  • Locations= Cascade of Gurraz (between Tignes and Sainte Foy), Cascade of the Peisey Valley (above Peisey Nancroix), Cascade of Chapieux Valley

  • Prerequisite: having practiced ice climbing of different lengths, good physical shape

  • Price= From 320€ for 1 or 2 people depending on the cascade*

*Prices include guide’s fee and loan of technical equipment (ice axe and crampons).

Please contact me if you wish to learn or improve your ice climbing techniques during one or more days while you are in Tarentaise. I would love guiding you in these beautiful ice walls!

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
