Why Trek with Us

Experience and Safety

Alpine Ascents has been running trips in the Alps for nearly 10 years. We are one of the few companies to offer an all inclusive trip, so you don’t have worry about any of the logistics. Our guides are famed industry wide and are all certified by the American Mountain Guide Association. Our programs are known for smooth logistics, hand crafted itineraries quality and knowledgeable guides and excellent customer service.

Some of the keys to our continued success:

Our Guides

On our Alps programs, all of our guides are certified by the American Mountain Guide Association in skiing, rock climbing, and alpine climbing. Our guides will keep you safe while also ensuring that your trip is enjoyable and educational.

Alps Director

We are fortunate to have Jonathon Spitzer as the director for our Alps programs. Jonathon has spent the past seven summers in Chamonix, so his knowledge of the terrain and logistics is quite comprehensive. We are lucky to have him, a local American guide, organizing all of our logistics to make these expeditions operate smoothly. Jonathon also guides many of our Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, and Eiger trips.

Mountain Huts

Leave the large pack at home! These cozy and modern mountain huts provide bedding, comforters, and satisfying meals. You will find yourself enjoying the Tarte d’Jour and surreal views from the decks of these mountain huts.

Training Opportunities:

The first trekking day is spent learning about cramponing and ice axe technique. Over the course of the trip, our guides will continue to provide coaching related to this equipment and technique.

All Inclusive Trip

The price you see on the website is different than our competitors because it includes the price of all the huts, hotels and transportation once the trip has started. Specifically, this includes seven nights at mountain huts and two nights at 3 star hotels. Don’t worry about the price of huts and hotels once the trip has started and let us take care of all those details.

I had a great time on the trip.  My guides are top notch people, they taught me a ton and made every experience enjoyable.  Alpine Ascents stands head and shoulders above any other guide service I have ever encountered.
