Mission: To learn the skills and techniques of alpinism, culminating in a 4,000m summit expedition

The Shackleton Alpine Challenge offers the unique opportunity of a structured week of expert mountain training in the French Alps with the benefit of luxury accommodation, kit, transport and all logistics taken care of. Led by IFMGA mountain guides, you will visit the optimal places for learning every aspect of Alpinism, all in preparation for a summit attempt of Gran Paradiso - one of the coveted 4,000m peaks of the Graian Alps in Italy. From dramatic granite ridges topped with snow to ancient blue-ice glaciers, the Chamonix valley is one of Europe’s best adventure playgrounds; its soaring peaks, challenging terrain and sophisticated infrastructure make it the ideal place to learn at an intensive pace.

ITINERARY

REVIEWS

This Challenge really pushed me outside my comfort zone and was exactly what I needed to continue with my training for future polar adventures.

MEET YOUR GUIDES

We work with some of the very best polar guides, ensuring the highest possible safety, tuition and expertise on every expedition. Every Shackleton Challenge has at least two highly-qualified guides, led by Director of Expeditions Louis Rudd, and managed by Expedition Manager, Wendy Searle – between them they have accumulated thousands of miles on foot in polar regions. You will have several interactions with Wendy and Louis prior to departure, they will advise on pre-expedition training, kit recommendation and what to expect when on a Shackleton Challenge.
