Description

Want to reach the summit of one of the tallest mountains in Switzerland? Then join me on a 2-day trip in Randa, Switzerland as we climb to the top of Dom, the tallest peak in the Mischabel Range, and enjoy an awesome mountaineering adventure.

What to expect

Nestled in the Alps and sitting tall at 4,545 meters, Dom is an impressive mountain. Climbing this mountain is not technically very difficult but physically it is a huge challenge.

To begin our trip, we’ll meet at Randa and from there we’ll hike to Rifugio Domhutte. This will be our home for the night. We’ll get to bed early because the next day we’ll rise bright and early, at 3 am to be precise, to begin our journey to the summit.

Day two is where we face the most difficult conditions. We’ll be traversing a glacier and climbing over very rocky and snowy terrain. The final stretch to the summit is difficult but worth it for the awesome views of the Alps and the peaceful, solitude at the top.

We’ll then descend, this can be done on the same day. However, you can do it in more time if you need to.

Across the two days, we’ll make a vertical gain of 3100 meters. This is not an easy mountain to climb. You’ll need to have previous mountaineering experience and a good level of fitness to take on the challenge.

This is an awesome experience you don’t want to miss, get it touch today to save your spot.

We had a great day with Leo. He drove us to a spot with many problems from easy to hard. He was super supportive and positive and gave excellent coaching and climbing advice. He didn't just give beta but really worked with us on the subtle techniques necessary at Fontainebleau.

Petit couac pendant l'organisation, mais tout est rentré dans l'ordre et c'est très bien passé au final

My 12-year-old nephew and I recently spent a thrilling half-day climbing the via ferrata of Les Grands Malades near Namur, and we absolutely loved the adventure. The experience was quite challenging at times, providing us with an exhilarating dose of adrenaline. It’s definitely not for those with a fear of heights. Our guide, Willy, was fantastic—ensuring our safety while being both educational and fun. We completed the via ferrata in two hours and spent an additional hour climbing and abseiling. Overall, it was an unforgettable experience that I highly recommend. Thank you, Explore-Share and Willy, for such a great via ferrata tour. We can’t wait to tackle the via ferrata of Marche les Dames next!

My wife and three daughters ages 8,11, and 12. Had a great time. Not a “nose to tail” ride.
