Discover the magnificent Swiss, French and Italian Alps by joining us on a guided alpine climbing adventure during the European summer.

About Guided Climbing in Europe

July and August each year, we enjoy the finest climbing in the Alps of Europe, based in Leysin, Switzerland. Leysin is centrally located and a perfect start to many great climbing options.

Gary's alpine climbing experience and knowledge of the Swiss, Italian and French Alps (since 1997) maximizes YOUR guided climbing adventure. He can offer you a variety of fantastic climbing options in Europe to match your experience, skills and ambitions. Be it on snowy classics or exposed granite ridges, from the Swiss Bernese Oberland with Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau to the Mont Blanc range in France and the Gran Paradiso in Italy, the climbing playground is huge and fabulous.

Clients on Guided Climbing trips in Europe say:

'Dear Gary and Iris,
Just a quick note to once again say 'thank you' for another life-expanding adventure. By my count our "three 4000m peaks and a huge three-wire bridge" week in Switzerland was the seventh trip (in NZ and Switzerland) I've done with the noted firm of Alpinism & Ski - which says something about my appetite for punishment and comfort-zone expansion, and your amazing ability to make your clients suck up the hard stuff, stifle the whimpers and then keep coming back for more. You guys are the best. Many thanks.'
