Introduction to ice climbing


This activity, although perceived at first sight as physical, does not require previous experience in mountaineering or climbing. Thanks to the experience of our guides, you will enjoy climbing in this pure and magic atmosphere.

After a short walk, you will arrive at the foot of the ice wall.
The Chamonix Valley has two sites perfectly suited to experience ice climbing in complete safety: the Crémerie in Argentière and the Cascade de Bérard in Vallorcine.

Put on your crampons, helmet, harness, and take your ice axe to set off for a day to discover this amazing activity!

Went on the Mer de Glace hiking and ice climbing. Nice guide, nice group, helpful staff, splendid landscape
It was long time after being able to hike, which is basically one of the things I love more in life, I loved to finally be there.
