Métabief guided ice climbing day trips

Métabief guided ice climbing day trips | undefined

Come and join Benjamin Soufflot, an IFMGA mountain guide, on this amazing ice climbing tour in Métabief, in the Jura Mountains.


+1 Day

Jan - Apr, Dec




It is my pleasure to invite you to this unique ice climbing outing in Metabief, a winter sports area located east of France, very close to the border with Switzerland.

The Jura Massif is a mountain range situated in the Western Alps, mainly following the course of the France–Switzerland border. One of its main ski resorts is Métabief, about a 30-minute drive from Geneva. It has an artificial 15-metre high icefall, which allows for everyone to practice ice climbing.

This waterfall is located exactly on the Berche run and it can accessed on skis after taking a lift. It offers several 15-meter high routes. Beginners will learn the basic ice climbing techniques, while experienced climbers will focus on improving their skills.  

If you arrange for more days, we can also visit another of the most famous ice-climbing venues in the Alps: Chamonix, the Ecrins, or the Val de Cogne, in Italy. We will find a large variety of ice formations and different degrees of difficulty.

So, if you are ready to climb some stunning ice lines, please contact me! I’ll be glad to make this trip an unforgettable winter experience for you.

I also offer freeride skiing and ski touring trips in Les portes du Soleil area. You can check out, for example, my Avoriaz tour.

About the guide

Mountain Guide

The Jura massif is an ideal place to learn and grow your experience in alpine techniques. I practice mountaineering, ski touring and ice climbing in the winter. I am also located very close to the Swiss and French alpine massifs.

First, I started as a ski rescuer. My passion for skiing and climbing helped me discover the classic routes in the mythical summits of the Alps. The first mountain courses I went on with friends as a guide - which I did with a lot of effort, doubts and perseverance - were much needed to build my experience. Still, they also gave me a lot of joy, and I was able to pursue them while laughing and creating beautiful moments shared.

My experience and terrain knowledge will allow you to move safely and enjoy your time, without a promise of the summit but of sharing a privileged and unique moment in the mountains.

Finally, I'm a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide.

What people are saying about Benjamin



Hello, There was no trip, nobody contacted me. Please reimburse the amount.



Thanks to the site, we had a rapid proposal for a guide, who quickly tool contact with us. He chose a trip adapted to the competences of the family and remained very diligent during the full trip. Great experience !



An excellent guide, who planned an amazing route and combined technical instruction with local knowledge to provide a very enjoyable day of skiing that improved my off-piste skills and gave me confidence to try lines that I would never consider alone.


Nous sommes partis 2 jours avec Benjamin. C’était fantastique de découvrir une autre façon de faire du ski. Benjamin est un gars super sympa et sécurisant. On a passé deux belles journées avec lui. Un regret : Que l’on ne découvre qu’à 54 balais la randonnée à ski. Qui sait !! On prendra peut-être goût à l’alpinisme à 70 ans. Merci à Explore-Share.com de nous avoir présenté Benjamin. Il est sûrement à conseiller à d’autres candidats.


I am really, really happy with both Explore-share.com’s service and their recommendation of guide Benjamin Souflot. Benjamin was extremely personable, and more importantly knowledgeable. Benjamin recommended where to rent ski gear and the proper gear for the day. He had crampons for my boots, ropes and other safety gear needed. I showed up at the meeting spot early, and Benjamin was already there waiting. On the gondola ride up to Aiguille du Midi, he talked safety and what to expect. When we got up to the top, it was very windy and intimidating. As Benjamin prepared the gear for our descent, he talked safety, strategy and was reassuring that it would be a fun, safe adventure. As I look down the face of the Ridgeline, I became nervous and anxious. Benjamin was very reassuring that it was going to be OK, that I was safe with him and we would make it down. Sure enough, Benjamin literally “talked me off the ledge” and we proceeded down. Benjamin was focused & guided me the entire time. Once we started skiing, Benjamin gave great instructions as to where to ski, what to expect ahead, etc. He was very knowledgeable about the mountain. When we took breaks, Benjamin shared with me interesting facts about where we were, in the mountains France, Italy, Mount Blanc, the crevasses, various peaks, history of the glacier, etc. I had a great experience! I would definitely do this trip again with Benjamin. I would also recommend this trip to anyone else with Benjamin and your company, Explore-share.com. Thank you again! -John
