Ice Climbing Holidays at Country House properties in France
Ice climbing is a real adrenaline-rush activity that is gaining popularity. Our specialists offer comfortable accommodation in traditional French country houses along with ice climbing as one of a range of expert-led winter sports. Climb alpine glaciers or tackle ice faces combined with rock in the experience of climbing to a mountain summit. Vertical ice climbing is done with crampons and ice axes. Beginners to the sport need to be familiar with many of the important techniques and practices commonly used in rock climbing such as belaying, tying in, leading, abseiling, and lowering and this should be learned from experienced experts.
