More Info

Switzerland is a central European country at the heart of the Alps. It shares borders with Germany, France, Italy, Austria, and Liechtenstein. Its famous peaks, many of which are included among the tallest on the continent west of the Caucasus, are some of the most popular for mountaineering and climbing. The lakes in the south of the country are destinations in their own right. Its high-altitude peaks are also popular for skiing and snowboarding – ski touring and splitboarding are exhilarating ways to parlay a classic mountaineering trip into an all-encompassing Alpine immersion. Be on the lookout for the classic charm of Swiss valleys like Engadine or Lotschental that remind you why Switzerland is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

 

 

Good to Know

 

What is the Weather Like

The weather is surprisingly accommodating. The relatively close proximity to the Mediterranean makes the south pleasant. The temperate climate gives way to glaciated mountain peaks - ideal for alpinists.

Language

German, French, Italian

Currency

Swiss franc (CHF)

How to Get There

Switzerland is in the middle of Europe. Its major transportation hubs are Geneva, Bern, and Zurich. Trains and roads both run efficiently within the borders, and most destinations are designed to assist mountaineers and winter sport enthusiasts. If flying into Lugano seems like too-ambitious an affair, Milan, in Italy, will help you access the lakes in the south of the country.

Best Time to Visit

The best time for mountain climbing in Switzerland is in the summer, when the weather tends to be less volatile. It can get packed on some peaks during the high season, so planning a trip at the edges of the June to September spectrum can be equally satisfying.

Elis was fantastic!
This was a fantastic trip from start to finish. Lupe and Guy helped in the pre-climb planning, and Guy
is a very knowledgeable guide, and is thorough in planning. I can hardly wait to go again.
Andrej is not extremely talkative but everything he said was gold. I hope to learn more from him,
and it would be a great gift to humanity if he wrote some of his little stories in a little book.
Marija is a very good and experienced guide. I will definately choose to go with Marija again.
This is awesome! Actually I could not go to the Matterhorn, because I wasn’t fit. Instead of that, I went to
the Pollux and Breithorn. It is touching to me, and I will go to the Matterhorn with fitting body and stamina. Thank you for giving me great experience
The whole experience of the Mont Blanc climb was awesome. I was really lucky to have Claudio Bastrentaz from Peaks
Hunter Mountain Guide Team as a guide. He is very professional and a great guy to be with on the mountain. We made it to the summit before sunrise and the views were spectacular. It will be a memory for life.
Had a wonderful two days in fantastic weather. Yann was excellent, would highly recommend him.
He is the best guide and supporter! He made me concentrate and focus on the rock climbing. It was really
exciting anf very fun.
Learned allot. Had a hard time with my fitness and balance. Guy wisely said I wasn’t ready. Next year I’ll
be ready.
I really loved Guy. He was the perfect guide for me for my climb up the Hornli ridge of the
Matterhorn. He was fun, patient and very experienced. Guy really knows the mountain and he loves what he does. I highly recommend him for your climbing adventures
Eli’s was the best! Peak Hunter Guides was great. Elis showed some of the best guiding expertise I’ve ever seen.
Thanks to Explore Share.
Marija was professional and showed great patience and fitness. This all culminated in a successful ascent of the Matterhorn. I
would recommend her.
Awesome trip with professional, friendly and highly recommended guide!
Many thanks to your team and David for the organization of the ascent to the Matterhorn. In the future I
hope to resort to your services again. I am very pleased with the result
Claudio was a competent, friendly guide. I really enjoyed my time trekking/climbing with him. Thanks again for a great adventure!
Ciao, John
