Our commitment to you

Founded in France in 1993 by Sandrine and Pierre Schmidt, Odyssée Montagne is based in the heart of the Alps at Chamonix Mont-Blanc. Each year, we take more people into the Alps and other stunning mountain ranges all over the world.  It’s the testimonies and encouragement of our clients that inspires us to advance.

Experts in creating beautiful experiences on the world’s highest mountains, we are the architects of your voyage.  We sell only our own trips.  The skill of our guides and local teams combines with our experience to invent original routes that leave the beaten track.  We offer you:

Small groups:  in the Alps and beyond, we have made the choice to lead small groups to ensure optimal safety.

Thorough training

The great majority of our programs are supervised by French high mountain guides.  They are the guarantee that your trip will unfold well.  Our guides are experienced professionals, UIAGM graduates, recruited for their specific skills in each field:  ski touring, expeditions, mountaineering, ice climbing, training clinics and more.  We work as often as possible with the same guides, sirdars and local teams which we have trained in our methods. 

Financial guarantee

Odyssée Montagne is a travel agency that has chosen to join the APS (Association Professionnelle de Solidarité).  You have certainty that your trip will happen even in the unlikely case that the agency bankrupts.

-       experience: know-how and local knowlege

-       responsiveness: a quick response and flexibility

-       future trips with the same guide:  ask us and we’ll organise it wherever possible

An ethical approach 

Whether it’s in the Alps or on the other side of the world, our journeys are based on respect for humans and the environment, for the collective good.  Respect the  people you meet and their customs, as well as group life.
