Alpine Action & Adventure

Deep in the Chamonix valley there is a hidden place where frozen waterfalls, snow covered rock races and crystal clear rivers meet to create the perfect location for our adventure.

Ice climbing and via ferrata modules have been installed by our expert team of mountain guides, and you have to get your fellow adventurers across them! Communication, team spirit and synergy will ensure your success.

The final thrill is a 20 metre abseil followed by a leap of faith as you whizz along a zipline suspended above the icy waters of the river.

This activity combines alpine fun with personal challenges and teamwork between the guide and the participants

Description

The activity takes place near to Argentiere, a small village about 15 minutes drive north of Chamonix.

Your group is divided into teams, each team supervised by a guide with a third guide to ensure the link between the teams. The whole activity takes place on the same site, so that the two groups remain in sight of each other.

The two teams make their way around a circuit in which each team member tackles the challenges of ice climbing and via ferrata, aided and encouraged by the guide and their team mates. Both activities rely on cooperation and mutual support, since each member of the team must help with the ropes and climbing equipment.

To benefit from a longer day in this incredible environment, it is possible to split the activity between morning and afternoon, stopping to enjoy lunch together at a traditional alpine restaurant.
