Summer Climbing in the Alps
This has become a popular option for tourists and adventure-seekers looking to enjoy the Alpine lifestyle and food, but without the high season prices and bustling crowds expected from the ski season. There are many tours that can be undertaken, giving the option to head off into the wilderness for days, conquering a number of peaks and staying out in mountain huts.
Much as hiking has had a renaissance of late over the last few years, summer climbing has exploded in popularity, providing a steady stream of new admirers of the European Alps. Notably, there has been a growth in popularity in what was once a ‘old school’ Alpine favourite, Via Feratta, over the last few years. This is where summer Alpine climbing as a sport originated – in the Italian Dolomites – but has now spread throughout the world.
The fixed route courses provide a great introduction to climbing through the mountains, enabling relatively inexperienced climbers to reach places and peaks that would not otherwise be possible for them. Local guides can provide tuition and the equipment to help you give this a go. And of course, if you need knowledgeable drivers to take you from anywhere to anywhere in the alps, give the team at Ski-Lifts a call.
