Learn and introduce yourself to Mountaineering with this course.


From the first steps to the big races, it is necessary to build a solid base in order to evolve in safety.

The Bureau's guides offer you a course adapted to the high mountains and their magical and dangerous environment.
We start the course with the basics: learning to walk on a glacier and rope up to cross crevasses, to end with a beautiful 4000m summit in the heart of the Alps.
You will discover an incredibly protected environment but also threatened by global warming, and you will be able to experience the high mountain sunrises and sunsets from the refuge's terrace.
Your greatest moment will be the joy you will experience with your fellow climbers when you reach the summit after several hours of effort including an early wake-up call. A shared summit is always more enjoyable!
