Join Jon, an IFMGA certified guide, on this Val d'Aran advance alpine course. He'll teach you how to move around big mountains safely and with confidence!


+1 Day

Jan - Mar, Dec




This Val d'Aran advanced alpine course will give you the resources you need to safely deal with big mountains!

Please note that this course can only be taught in Spanish. The main goal of the program will be for you to become more self-sufficient in the winter world. Plus I'll teach you the safest way to behave while alone during an ascent. Indeed, it doesn't matter if it is on snow, ice or rock, I'll show you techniques to climb through all of them.

So here are some of the technique that I will teach you:

– Ice axe use in steep slopes.
– Ascent with two ice axes.

– Rope ascent and long progressions.
– Anchor on snow, ice and rock.
– Classic abseiling.
– Roping on glaciers.
– Introduction to self rescue.
– Snow conditions assessment.
– Avalanches prevention and action.
– Transceiver use.
– Planification, schedule analysis, emergency gear, etc.

Moreover, you'll be learning all this while enjoying the amazing Val d'Aran's scenery. Rather than a course it will seem like an expedition, with me helping you out.

So please contact me to make this Val d'Aran advanced alpine course happen. And please specify any requests that you may have, so I can make the proper arrangements in advance.

And if you’d like to check out some of my longer programs, please take a look at my 8-day Mount Cervino hiking tour or my 7-day Chamonix mountaineering course.

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
