Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec
This Val d'Aran ice climbing course will give you the knowledge to climb on the most amazing locations in the Pyrenees!
Instead of having to stop doing outdoor activities when the freezing winter cold arrives, this is your opportunity to learn a new climbing technique. Although it seems like an impossible enterprise, I'll show you how to do it step by step. Please note that this course can only be taught in Spanish.
Plus you'll enjoy the closeness to the amazing formations made out of small frozen waterfalls. These amazing ice formations change their look they after day with the sun and the cold. But they are truly unique features and you'll be privileged to be able to climb on them.
This course's main goal is to teach you how to climb safely and with autonomy on an ice waterfall.
First we'll check the gear and your knowledge of how to use and take care of it. We'll also talk about the planning of your trip and how to eat and drink properly for the experience.
Then I'll teach you more complex techniques such as gestures, ice axe traction, different types of anchor, security chains, etc.
So please don’t hesitate to contact me and make this Val d'Aran ice climbing course happen. And send me all your requests so I can make the proper arrangements.
And if you’d like to check out some of my other courses, please take a look at my 2-day Val d’Aran introductory alpine course or my Val d’Aran advanced alpine 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.

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!
