We offer courses for climbers of all levels with IFMGA Alpine Mountain Guides:

Alpine Climbing HolidaysGuided Trekking Peaks - ideal for keen mountain walkers and scramblers who seek the challenge of the high Alps without technical rock and ice terrain.

Introductory Mountaineering Courses & High Summits - these courses offer a solid instructional grounding and varied experience of snow, rock and mixed routes. Suitable for a first Alpine trip.

Intermediate Mountaineering Courses - Our Intermediate Alpine Mountaineering Courses operate at a 2:1 guiding ratio and aim to climb high quality AD routes building participants skills and confidence along the way. They are great to follow on from one of our Introductory Mountaineering Courses.

Advanced Alpine Mountaineering - our Advanced Mountaineering holidays require greater prior experience of rock and/or snow-ice climbing; they can follow on from our Intermediate Mountaineering Courses or from strong experience of personal technical climbing.

We also offer Private Guiding, and tailored courses for large groups and can run our alpine mountaineering courses on other dates for groups of 2 or more - please contact us for availability and prices.

"I had an absolutely brilliant 10 days in the Alps. I'd just like to thank you for a wonderful experience, with two very professional guides Dave and Andy. Catering and accommodation also spot on." Andrew, Alpine Progression/Mont Blanc 2016
