At Chamonix Experience we organise a wide range of mountaineering and climbing courses in the Alps to cater for every ability. Our alpine introduction course and winter mountaineering courses have been really successful over the years, and we are now offering 3 differents levels for both summmer and winter courses. Whether you want to climb a 4000m peak such as Mont Blanc, the Eiger or the Matterhorn with a fully qualified IFMGA/UIAGM guide or just want to develop your skills in the mountains, we can find a course to suit you. We provide experienced English speaking mountain guides for both our organised courses or custom guided trips. We can take your skills further by climbing some of the classic winter and summer mountaineering routes or by going rock climbing or ice climbing in the Chamonix valley, Italy and Switzerland. Before embarking on an expedition to the Himalayas, South America or elsewhere, it is essential to arrive fully prepared. For many years now we have specialised in organising expedition training for Russell Brice expeditions and other destinations.
Chamonix Valley and the nearby valleys in Switzerland and Italy offer some of the best ice climbing in the region. Only Cogne in Italy has more that 130 ice routes on some of the fines ice falls. We organise 3-day and 5-day courses for those who never ice climbed before or for those who have some previous experience and wish to improve their technique and skills. We are keen to organise private ice climbing trips for climbers of all levels from beginners to experts. Our UIAGM qualified Mountain Guides are passionate about ice climbing and will be delighted to share this passion with you.
