- corporate mountain events experts
Welcome to the Icicle base camp for organising
corporate mountain events in the Lake District,
Alps and around the world. Icicle Events is the VIP corporate
mountain events logistics branch of Icicle Mountaineering
Ltd. The only limit to the events we can manage
is your imagination, and you can be as hands-on
or hands-off in the organisation, as you'd like.
We have decades of expertise in offering guided
mountain adventures to climb, trek, ski &
Our logistics base and HQ is in Windermere in
the English Lake District, which is an amazing
hub in the midst of the national park. As well
as offering events in the Lake District, we frequently
organise events in the Alps, and further afield
to destinations such as Kilimanjaro in Tanzania,
and Mount Toubkal in Morocco. The key to our success
is our 'little black book' of mountain guiding
experts, local facilitators, and great venues.
We create a huge range of VIP executive services,
which provide inspirational, meticulously planned,
and high quality business events for your clients
and employees. Our expertise is a result of decades
of experience, led by the same management team,
where continuity, integrity, quality and descretion
are our watchwords. As a result we have built
up an unparallelled reputation
for results, and seamless service.
