WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING...

Rutger De Vink

“Skyward Guides delivers on their motto: “True Spirit of Alpinism”.

I have been on several mountain climbing and backcountry skiing trips with Vince, and each time I feel challenged by the experience, while also feeling completely safe. If anyone is looking for serious adventure with the most professional team, this is it.”

Colin Kimber

‘‘What a fantastic few day’s ice climbing with Steven! He fully understood what my goals were during our time ice climbing together, exceeding my expectations. Steven’s passion of the sport is apparent in his teaching style and the way he passes on that knowledge, not forgetting great Beta too. He clearly demonstrated techniques that would improve my economy of movement not just in my climbing technique on the ice but also transitions through the belay stance, making me a far smarter climber. I would highly recommend 1:1 instruction, and we cannot forget what a blast ice climbing is!”
