Very high

All levels


* Ascend the highest peak in the French Pyrenees.

* Discover different mountaineering techniques.

* Enjoy an unforgettable sunrise in the mountains.


Get ready for an unforgettable experience ascending the French Pyrenees’ highest peak, the Vignemale. At an altitude of 3,298 meters, we will reach this impressive summit in a day, no prior experience necessary. Join me for an unbelievable adventure!

We’ll begin with an easy walk along the GR10 to get used to the altitude and pace. This will give us the chance to enjoy an unforgettable sunrise at the gap between Roland, Taillon and Marboré. After climbing to Ossoue, we’ll reach the Bellevue caves. Then, we’ll reach the Ossoue Glacier and use crampons to cross it and reach the Vignemale peak. We then begin our descent.

Even though you don’t need to have previous mountaineering experience for this ascent, you do need to be physically fit for it. The route presents an altitude difference of 1,500 meters and the path is not always smooth. One of the best things about this trip is that you’ll be able to experience many aspects of mountaineering such as rock climbing and walking on glaciers.

So join me for a unique adventure in the French Pyrenees. I would love to be your guide.

For more mountaineering experiences in the area, join me to ascend the Aneto and/or the Pic du Midi d’Ossau.

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.
