Alpine Mountaineering and Alpine Climbing

Not all Alpine peaks are as busy as Mont Blanc, not all Alpine peaks are as steep as the Matterhorn. From beautiful hut walks to lofty ridges, there is plenty for walkers or mountaineers alike. Whether you want a 'taste of the Alps' or strive for self sufficiency. Whether you are a walker, or a committed climber. Whether you want five days of skills, a good apprenticeship, or two full weeks of adventure - there really is something for everyone here.
All our staff are IFMGA guides (or aspirants) as well as Mountaineering Instructors. This means that, in addition to the top international qualification, they have a wealth of Alpine experience to share.
