Alpine Mountaineering

Our alpine courses are based around some of the inspirational great peaks of the European Alps….Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Eiger, Gran Paradiso, Monte Rosa, Weissmies, Monte Rosa & Monte Viso.   For an even longer & tougher challenge you could try & climb the 3 highest peaks in the Alps, ‘The Mission’ or the 3 most iconic alpine peaks, Mt Blanc, The Matterhorn & The Eiger, ‘Mission Impossible!’  Read on, prepare to be inspired, get training!

We specialise in French, Swiss & Italian alpine mountain courses usually starting from a base in Chamonix, and provide high quality guiding & training for our series of ascents as per the list below.   These programmes start at introductory level and form an inspiring progression in which to explore these great peaks of the Alps, and develop your mountaineering skills, confidence and fitness along the way. This progression can also be combined with our Chamonix based mountaineering courses or private guiding to develop an ideal programme for your next alpine trip.
