Private mountain guide

CHAMEX has organised trips for clients with a wide range of requirements: preparation for 8000m peaks, major alpine routes, treks or family outings on our mighty glaciers. There is nothing that we can’t organise, no matter how big or small!


Where possible, we will adapt the programme according to your level, goals and current weather & snow conditions. Our goal is to maximise your holiday time in Chamonix.


We work with fully qualified local mountain guides who are passionate about ski touring, have extensive local knowledge, speak English and are fun company.


The flexibility and personal approach provided by private courses allow fast progress and helps to push your limits a step further.


The Alps, specifically Chamonix, is basically a massive mountaineering playground with a huge range of adventurous and challenging itineraries to choose from – Aiguille Verte, Grandes Jorasses, Grand Capucin…

Treat yourself to the experience of a lifetime with one of our UIAGM Mountain Guides. We can either propose a choice of individual climbs for all levels of ability and experience, or we can put together a tailor made program of bespoke training days building up to a big climb. Whatever your mountaineering goals are, we will help you to achieve them.

Our climbing guides will introduce you to some of the most beautiful multi-pitch routes in the Mont-Blanc region, both in Chamonix and further afield in neighbouring resorts. With so many incredible peaks on our doorstep, the possibilities are limitless.

For the ultimate alpine experience, you can challenge yourself on big high mountain terrain and summit the highest peaks in the Alps – Mont Blanc, Eiger, Matterhorn and Gran Paradiso are all within range and you’ll find Chamonix to be the perfect training ground for high altitude mountaineering. CHAMEX mountain guides are all very strong climbers with a wealth of experience to share with you, not only will you benefit from their expertise but you’ll also be in the safest hands possible.

We treat all of our clients as individuals and all of our trips are completely customized to suit you, allowing for whether you are an excellent mountain climber or a keen beginner. You’ll be dealing directly with us from the very first point of contact and we work hard to ensure that your needs are met, at every step of the way.

There are many advantages of private guiding; your program will be totally flexible, your guide will be 100% focused on your goals, you will progress at exactly your own pace. Contact us now to start planning your personal alpine adventure.

In order to plan your trip we need to know a little bit about you – what your goals are, what you want to see and do, what previous experience you do or don’t have… don’t hesitate to contact us so that we can make some suggestions and start planning your personal program based on the information that you give us.
