Description

Improve your mountaineering skills during this 2-day glacier travel course in the beautiful Steingletscher in the heart of Switzerland!

Stein Glacier, known in German as Steingletscher,  is centrally located in the Swiss canton of Bern in the Uri Alps mountain range. With an area of about 8 kilometers squared, there is plenty of terrain for us to learn and practice basic glacier travel skills that are important for any aspiring mountaineer to master. Our two days together will serve as great preparation for future mountaineering objectives in the Alps and beyond.

This gorgeous glacier towers with above a beautiful green valley surrounded by craggy peaks. The glacier’s tongues sit at about 2,000 – 3,000 meters, winding down to a lovely glacial lagoon that creates an ideal Swiss landscape in the heart of the Alps. The area is a paradise for those outdoor adventurers who love to rock climb, hike, and ascend alpine mountain terrain.

Book now for a fun and informative 2 days practicing key glacier travel skills on Stein Glacier, a perfect area near Bern in the Swiss Alps!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
