Alpine Mountaineering

The Alps: a rich and varied playground for the enthusiastic mountaineer! We have a scheduled trip led by our qualified mountain guides to meet all levels of mountaineering ability from our 'Best of Chamonix' taster weekends right through to technical ascents of classic Alpine North Faces. Whatever your personal goal, our experienced IFMGA mountain guides are here to make your trip one to remember!

If you are looking for a guided mountaineering course our Alpine Skills course could be the ideal starting point; for those new to alpine mountaineering or who want to build on existing experience our mountaineering courses will provide a new mountain experience each day and, with it, an array of new and interesting techniques. These are very much 'learn as a you climb' mountain-based courses so the beginning of the course also involves training in acclimatisation, in preparation for the climb to the top of a 4000m alpine mountain.
