Mountaineering & Climbing courses in the Alps

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. 

Ice Climbing 

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. 

Alpine climbing and mountaineering

Chamex offers a wide range of winter and summer courses and private guiding trips for clients incline to discover, improve or perform on the mountains in winter time. Our beginner courses will teach you the essential basics and take you through your first steps in alpine climbing. Our advanced courses will take you climbing some of the amazing big routes around the Mont Blanc massif and beyond. Our DIY courses are designed for those who wish to learn the essential climbing skill to become confident, independent mountaineers. For those who simply want to enjoy climbing great routes following the tracks of their personal UIAGM mountain Guide, Chamonix Experience counts some of the best guides in the Alps to do so!

Rock climbing

Chamonix Valley and it’s surroundings offer very varied terrain for rock climbing. We can take you climbing on the steep limestone cliffs of the world famous Verdon gorge, the slabby and technical climbs on the gneiss peaks of the Aiguilles Rouges or the fabulous granite routes on the Mont Blanc massif. You will climb some of the nicest routes in the valley and we will work with you on improving your climbing and mountain safety skills. You can either join one of our courses or hire our private UIAGM qualified Mountain Guide for a custom made trip.
