We would like to guide you on a thrilling 2-day trip to the Blüemlisalp (3,661m) summit in the Bernese Alps of Switzerland. In addition to climbing, you will be rewarded with stunning views of the turquoise-blue Oeschinen lake, and the peaks of Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, and Bietschhorn!

Located in the central Berner Oberland, the Blüemlisalp summit offers spectacular routes on snow and ice as you traverse via its north face. We will begin in Kandersteg and take the gondola lift to an altitude of 1,683m. From the mountain station, the trail leads along the beautiful Oeschinen lake to Alp Oberbärgli. From there, we’ll trek on arid terrain to reach the cozy Blüemlisalp hut. The next day, after a filling breakfast, while it is still dark, we’ll head towards the Blüemlisalp glacier. It is an interesting, short hike. The trail leads to the foot of the Blüemlisalp North Wall.

Equipped with steel discs and ice equipment, we’ll climb the 500 m steep wall. You’ll hear no sound, except for the that of your ice tools and gradually, you’ll move away from the shallow glacier towards the summit. Once at the top you will catch amazing views! After, we’ll descend via the ridge back to Rothornsattel.

Depending on the weather, you can choose to either descend back to the hut via the Blüemlisalp Glacier or take the direct path over the flank of North Wall, to reach Underbärgli. From Underbärgli, we’ll descend to the gondola lift and finally depart from Kandersteg, taking with us some unforgettable memories!

So, if you wish to explore the Swiss Alps, book your place now and come with us on a memorable trip to Bluemlisalp. Also, check out this amazing trip to climb the North Face of Kingspitz in Switzerland!
