Enjoy this stunning island from above with this intro to mountaineering course in Corsica!

This course is designed to give you a taste of different snow, ice and mixed routes. Those who wish to will even be learn to lead in no time. And you’ll be able to do all this while enjoying the incredible Corsican landscape!

Corsica is one of France’s 13 regions. It is also the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, after Sicily, Sardinia and Cyprus. A single chain of mountains makes up two-thirds of this incredibly beautiful island.

During the course, you’ll learn progression and security ice climbing techniques. We’ll also cover belaying and abseiling on mixed terrain. If conditions allow, we’ll finish the course with a multi-pitch gully ascent in the Lombarducciu Massif.

Group size is limited to 4 people, both for security reasons and for you to take advantage of the learning experience. The program is very flexible so we’ll be able to adapt to daily conditions.

This mountaineering course in Corsica takes 6 days to complete. It doesn’t require you to have any particular experience. However, a good physical condition and knowledge of basic rock climbing techniques are preferable. I always advise clients to undergo some training before the beginning of the course.

Contact me now and join me on these 6 days of pure fun. This course will be your door to the wonderful world of climbing. And you’ll get to do it in one of the most gorgeous places in the world!

Mountain Guide

Certified mountain guide UIAGM / IFMGA
I work with Manu, a good friend of mine...
We are both rock climbing instructors and certified mountain leaders. I shared with Manu happy and doubtful moments, building a professional future with a passionate focus on the mountain and the guide role. An open vision over the world, where our competences, knowledge and curiosity are at our client’s service for one day or for life.
The agency we founded together is the natural outcome of our profound complicity. People think we are cousins or brothers. We are just friends, and lucky to be so, because our children are in love: as in love as you can be at 8 years old!
We are both lucky to live in Corsica, this unknown mountain where climbers, mountaineers and skiers still feel like pioneers. This mountain is our playground and our office.
Curious and open to the world, we also organize each year trips to faraway places to see what other mountains and people can give to us, and what we can learn from them.
Ice in the Equator and Patagonia, Spanish, Jordanian or American rocks, snow in the Carpathians, Norway ot the Caucasus. We love the mountain in all its forms and every time we reach a summit we want to climb the neighbouring summit and find what is hiding behind it.

What people are saying about Cédric



The trip was great. We changed the destination to suit abilities. We climbed in the Restonica Valley which was beautiful. Cédric was excellent as a guide, highly recommended.



IMPORTANT COMMENT: the trip couldn't be made due to the weather. But both Cedric as the backoffice team has been extremely helpful in finding an alternative and solution. Finally we didn't go because of illness of 2 of the group. But definitely I will look for another trip next year.



I had a fantastic time climbing in col Bavella area. Cedric is an amazing guide, extremely professional, attentive, patient and very easy to work with. He is a natural instructor/teacher. I highly recommend Cedric as climbing guide. Col Bavella is a faboulouse place with multitude of climbing routes of all kinds and grades. The granite rock is very good, firm, with good traction. The views are really stunning.



Thank you! We had a great time with Cedric. He’s an excellent guide.



Cedric is very professional mountain guide and a nice person to spend a day with in his home mountains.!!!
