Mountaineering

Challenge yourself and discover the rewards of this accessible activity…

Mountaineering, also known as Alpinism, is a moderate combination of rock, snow and ice climbing in the exhilarating pursuit of significant glaciated peak ascents. It is a very rewarding activity offering a mountain of challenges adaptable to all experience levels and personal goals. Join us for the ultimate mountaineering adventure and gain confidence while walking on glaciers, scrambling a sharp rocky ridge or climbing an exposed alpine face high above the valley.
