Description

Of all the 3000 metre peaks that I offer trips for, Mont Velan (3,727m) is the biggest. This impressive peak in the canton of Valais in the Pennine Alps rests on the border between Switzerland and Italy, and is between the Great St. Bernard Pass and Grand Combin. There are also several glaciers covering this mountain, including the Glacier de Tseudet, the Glacier de Valsaroy and the Glacier de Proz.

Mont Velan is a beautiful mountain surrounded by beautiful mountains. It is also a mountain that is fairly easy to climb. Thus making this trip an accessible adventure that even beginners can participate in.

This trip is spread out over 2 days. On the first day we will depart from Ollomont or Valpelline. From there we will spend 2 to 3 hours walking to the bivouac of Savoie. The second day will be spent making our ascent of Mont Velan. It will be a mixed climb, as you will be scaling rock and glacier, until you reach the summit. Once there, you will get to enjoy some unforgettable views before descending. The ascent and descent should take approximately 8 to 10 hours.

The itinerary of this trip might appear fairly straightforward. However, I can assure you the trip is anything but. You will get to see beautiful scenery that can only be seen in the Alps. And you will get to feel the thrill of scaling one of its most spectacular peaks to its summit. So if this is the kind of trip you are looking for, just send me a message, and lets get started.

If you are looking for another 2 day climb in the Pennine Alps, I also offer this ascent of Mont Gele.

Hello Basically I am satisfied with the whole organization, because in the end everything worked as expected, whereby the guide had a big part in the success! Unfortunately, the information regarding equipment was unclear in advance and sometimes varied, which didn't make it any easier for a beginner like me. In general, the flow of information was rather slow, but towards the end it was sufficient and quick. In general, I would recommend that you revise the list of necessary equipment! Above all, it should be clear what the guest has to bring (with a distinction between "must" and "recommended"), what is provided by the organizer and what could be rented if necessary. Of course, this is not easy to accomplish, as the necessary equipment also depends on the conditions. Best wishes and continued success with the organization of ski trips! Martin

Great service. Above and beyond expectations. Abigail went the extra mile to make my trip happen, after hours and at very short notice. It would not have been possible without her. Highly recommended.

Hi, good service from explore share and peaks hunter, only some miscommunication on 2 or 3 days program, due to bad communication between you both. The guide was OK, friendly although non very experienced in the practice of pédagogie and communication, especially before couloir des Goûter s, there can be better briefing on security and also in general on the whole expedition. But he can grow by learning some coaching lessons. We did not do the final ascension due to bad weather, a proposal and financial compensation for 2nd attempt would have been welcome.6/10.can do better.

We just remember now the breathing, the view and the joy we had in Gran Paradiso accompanied by our guides Silvia and Elis. This kind of memory makes us smile and look for the next adventure. Silvia and Elis were attentive, kind and professionally fully prepared to help us reach a great experience of discovery and safety. For sure the moment would not be the same without our guides. We feel grateful and lucky to have their support and company. Elis, Silvia, thanks for taking us beyond.
