Airport Transfers for Alpine Climbing breaks

Given our experience in the Alps, Ski-Lifts has long been the authority in offering alps holiday transfers. We cater for climbers most summers across the region. When it comes to these alpine climbing breaks, probably the most famous of them all is Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s highest peak. Again – the warmth and comfort of cabins, chalets and ski resorts wins again, with many people basing themselves in the town of Chamonix, which provides excellent access to the phenomenal amount of climbs on offer.

Other names that many people will know include the Eiger, Matterhorn, Jungfrau and Weisshorn, known for some of the world’s most famous climbers opting to scale these annually. Climbing in the Alps isn’t limited to the summer, there are plenty of options in the winter, especially if ice climbing or ski mountaineering is your thing. The climbs that are available aren’t just for experts or the fearless, there are climbs to suit all ability levels. Local guides are on hand to help you find the most suitable and to help you avoid getting into trouble.

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.
