Climb a famous mountain summit or get off the beaten track and experience alpinism as it used to be!
If you love the mountains, like climbing and walking and are reasonably fit, then you are made for mountaineering and alpinism.
Mountaineering comes in various forms from 'relatively' easy trekking summits through to very technical climbs like the famous north face of the Eiger.
In between there is something for everyone so whether you want to cross a glacier avoiding the crevasses, do a technical rock climb, traverse an exposed ridge, just walk as high as you can or a mixture of all there is a mountain waiting for you to climb!
Traditional mountaineering season is the summer, when the harsh winter weather is over and the snow has receded to just the highest altitudes. This is also when the majority of refuges open which provide a welcome bed for the night and food for tired mountaineers on their way up or down their chosen mountain. Most high mountain summits above 3000m take two or more days to get to.
Choose from a range of mountaineering trips, do mountaineering as part of a multi activity holiday or tailor make your own. There is something for everyone from beginners to gnarly mountaineers!
