Private Trekking Guide, Chamonix

Full day guided hiking in and around Chamonix for up to 10 people

Get involved in the adventures the mountains have to offer by hiring a private IML trekking guide for a day.

You will be guided by an International Mountain Leader who is qualified to take clients in the mountains. They can take groups of up to 10 walkers and can offer guidance on where to hike as well as provide an informative experience with their knowledge of the history of the area and the flora and fauna of the valleys.

They also know all the key spots to see and the quiet refuge stops for lunch - the hidden gems of the area that you might miss without the local knowledge of a guide.

The guides know the Chamonix area like the back of their hands. They organise an itinerary in the mountains according to your experience, fitness and interests. The routes also depend on the current conditions.

Worth knowing

Private guiding trips can suit any level of fitness and ability. A few itineraries can be found below, but these are only guidelines and other options are possible.

  • Trek A (Easy): Trekking at altitudes of around 2000m. 3-5 hours walking per day. Experience is not necessary at this level: anyone who is in good health and fit enough to enjoy a good weekend hill walk can manage this type of trek. However, walking always involves some exertion: trails are rarely flat and on some occasions you may have to walk along steeper trails but usually not for too long.
  • Trek B (Moderate): Trekking at altitudes of around 3000m. 4-6 hours walking per day. Most people who enjoy a weekend in the hills or mountains are capable of undertaking a trek at this level: you need to be in good health and reasonably fit, and you will almost certainly be taking regular exercise. Walking at higher altitude and the occasional longer or more difficult day may be involved, but generally conditions underfoot will be reasonably comfortable.
  • Trek C (Strenuous): Trekking at altitudes of around 4000m. 5-7 hours walking per day. For any trek at this level, fitness becomes an important element and you must have built up a good level of endurance at a medium pace. Previous trekking experience is desirable but not essential if you are confident of your physical condition.
