"Adventure Base. The name says it all. It is the perfect base for setting in motion, adventures in the mountains, and beyond, that you dream about! I was impressed by the quality of service and professionalism, and how the Adventure Base team makes sure you get the most out of the entire experience.
"Overall, their team of staff helped give me the most amazing, challenging and unforgettable experience that I have ever had. They are great at what they do and as importantly were thoroughly decent, kind and considerate people both with their clients and their spectacular environment."
"I've been going on tours with Adventure Base for 5 years now and fully anticipate signing up with them next year too. The AB team is helpful, engaging, accommodating and professional, with a network of excellent guides. I consider the AB team my trusted friends in the Alps."
“The summit was like a dream. It was so overwhelming I began to cry with joy for making it to this magical world at the top of Europe.”
"I’d recommend Adventure Base 100%. I want to be an Adventure Base guide!"
"It is quite possibly the best most rewarding week I’ve ever had pursuing my passions."
"Really enjoyed the whole experience thank you!! Our little group was so much fun and the local guides were so amazing. Didn't want to leave!"
"AB are unequivocally the best. I don’t believe it could have been a better week, from the Chalet, to Jo the cook/cleaner/enthusiastic listener, to Olly the organiser, the other climbers (wonderful bunch) and most importantly the guides. A 10 out of 10 experience."
"Loved the trip to Toubkal thanks guys. No complaints from our group and we are already looking forward to the next adventure!"

Ski Touring Intro - Chamonix
Introducing keen and competent off-piste skiers to the world of ski touring. This is great preparation for our ski touring trips and an essential confidence builder for those with no previous ski touring experience. You will learn the essential skills required for ski touring.
Chamonix: Winter Alpine Skills
Our popular Alpine Skills course set in November and December, which are wilder, colder, often snowy and far quieter than the busy summer months in the Alps. The focus is on learning essential mountain skills such as crevasse rescue, ice climbing, roping up on glaciers all in a high mountain environment.
Skills & Climb: Ben Nevis
Tackle Britain's highest peak in the snowy winter months away from the summer crowds. Spend 2 epic days on the west coast of Scotland as you take on the challenge of climbing Ben Nevis in winter conditions, with crampons on your feet and an ice axe in your hand. The perfect introduction for hikers with a good level of fitness who are looking to dive into mountaineering.
