Ice Climbing: The Perfect Activity for Thrill-Seekers

Many of our clients are looking for a way to get an adrenaline boost when they book a holiday with us. They are bored with normal life and they need a bit of adventure, a thrill to shake them out of their everyday routine.

 

And at Life Dreams, we offer a wide selection of activity holidays in Italy – and it doesn’t get much more exciting than ice climbing.

 

Get a Bird’s Eye View of Ice Climbing

 

We decided to write about ice climbing because we just went on a climb this past weekend – and we are still buzzing!

 

It was an incredible experience. There is something about climbing up a sheer wall of ice in spectacular surroundings that you just cannot describe.

 

But because words alone won’t do it justice, here you can see a video of the climb for yourself because we filmed it using a drone and our video-cameras:

 

 

What Does Ice Climbing Involve?

 

Ice climbing is basically rock climbing but on ice. The aim is the same: to get to the top. But this time you’re trying to get up a sheer wall of ice rather than a rock face.

 

It is hard, physical work – and it’s amazing.

 

You’ll go up in a pair or team, with one person climbing while the other belays. Together, you’ll get up the ice using your specialist equipment, which can include ice axes, crampons, ice screws, leashes and more.

 

It sounds like there’s a lot involved, but it’s actually suitable for any standard and you don’t have to be an expert climber before you take on a climb.

 

And, as with other activities, some climbs are easier than others.

 

We have some fantastic experienced guides who we work with, and one of them accompanied us and one of our clients on last weekend’s climb. They really know their stuff!

 

They’ll make sure you are fully kitted out so you don’t have any safety issues. So even when you’re 100 metres off the ground, you know you’re still in safe hands.

 

Is Ice Climbing What You’ve Been Looking For?

 

If you want adventure and a real thrill – and you’re willing to work for it – ice climbing could be exactly what you need.

 

We do loads of exciting activities, as you can see from the activity list on our site, but this is absolutely one of the most thrilling.

 

We had a great time last weekend – and if you like what you see in the incredible video, we encourage you to try it out for yourself!
