Alpinism

Mountaineering, a word that makes dream more than a mountaineer. Going through the rock and ice of the high mountains gives access to a magical world. Entering these spaces of altitude is a wonderful moment to share with his companions.

If you walk regularly and love the mountains, the glacier hike is a first approach to gently introduce you to the high mountains, prelude to the rise of more demanding peaks ...

Mountaineering requires some adaptation time, progressive training to access the peaks of your dreams, but remains accessible to any good walker. Our Haute-Montagne guides will accompany you on this path of progression.

Mountaineering is a multi-faceted sport: rock climbing, snow ridges, glaciers, iconic peaks and other ice chutes, there is a lifetime for them.

Advices of guides

In any case, it is important to discuss your mountain experience and fitness with your guide honestly; in professionals we will adapt and offer you a race that suits you.

Mountaineering is quite physically demanding, but depending on the race, the preparation will be more or less intensive.
If you are able to walk 4 to 5 hours at an average pace in the middle of the mountains (300 m of altitude difference), the glacier hike is perfectly accessible.
For the highest peaks, it will be necessary to walk more intensively (5 to 6 hours at a pace of 400m / h) and even 8 to 10h for Mont Blanc.

For preparation: once a week or more, you can run or do 2 hours of cycling. Before leaving, check your bag with the lists of materials available on the site; have a snack and relax: it's the holidays! Attention, by experience, people who are very sporty, marathon runners, cyclists are more sensitive to altitude because they tend to go too fast, so if you run the UTMB, do not overestimate yourself in High Mountain!
