Description

Do you love hiking in the mountains but feel terrified if you suddenly come upon a steep descent? This 3-day group training course will help you overcome your fear of heights, through simple techniques and safe experiences. We also offer 2-day private guiding options.

We will put the theory into practice in the beautiful natural environment around Mayoux, a tiny village in Val d’Anniviers, in the canton of Valais. Check the dates below and join a group!

Acrophobia is an extreme fear of heights, especially when you are not particularly high up, but most of the time, fear of heights is a simple illusion: it is our brain playing us a dirty trick.

Having a good head for heights may sound like a dream to you, but with this course you will learn to control the tension and find the pleasure of hiking freely, whatever the path is.

We are both experienced mountain leaders. I am passionate about mountains and nature. François Castell, my team partner during this course, also holds a degree on Mental Training. He enjoys building educational pathways based on dynamic and participative practices.

Our teaching method is based on sharing experiences and techniques in natural scenarios, always in complete physical and psychological safety.During these days, you will acquire the techniques you need to feel confident and overcome the dizziness you may feel.

We will have a theory lesson on the first day and then we will venture into the beautiful surroundings of Mayoux for a practical training. You can check the day-by-day itinerary below.

So if you want to overcome your fear of heights, don’t miss on this opportunity! Join us and start enjoying your hikes in the mountains.  
If you feel like going for a great hike, you can join me on my Val d’Anniviers 5-day hiking tour.

About the guide

I'm a UIMLA mountain leader, a rescuer and a journalist. Since 18 years, the mountain is my office and my full-time job. My passion is about to transmit the small and big secrets of nature but also to allow everyone to find his right balance in an environment which might appear as hostile but which is actually a large reservoir of unsuspected individual energy. Here in the mountain, the masks fall down and that's the good point of it !

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!
