3 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




The Eiger mountain in the Bernese Alps is one of three stunning beauties that also include the Mönch and the Jungfrau. Ascending to the summit of the Eiger via the Mittellegi Ridge is a challenge on many a mountaineer’s wish list. Not an easy task of course, but well worth it, and better done with a seasoned guide. On this 3-day ascent, I show you the way to the Eiger’s peak via the famous Mittellegi Ridge.

Our trip begins from Grindelwald, a lovely Swiss village. From there we will begin our exciting three day ascent! On our way, we will encounter very exposed and narrow portions of the ridge. Also, some snow and ice along the way that will make this excursion a mountaineering challenge. We will also see some very beautiful landscapes and of course, after tackling this mountain’s challenging terrain you will feel a well deserved sense of accomplishment!

Because this is not an easy ascent, it is important that you are well prepared. Prior experience and a good fitness level are necessary! I will at all times be there to help and guide you, and to ensure your safety and enjoyment. Although definitely strenuous at times, this will be a very rewarding experience!

Are you ready to tackle the famous Mittellegi Ridge on your way up to the Eiger? Then book your place and join me on this 3-day trip to this famous mountaineering landmark!

About the guide

I’m a mountain guide based in Bled, Slovenia. Climbing and alpinism are a big part of my life and I feel like mountains are my second home.

I was introduced to the mountains by my father, a mountain rescuer and a romantic alpinist. He made sure that I don’t see the mountains only as a sports playground but also as a place where a person can enjoy and get to know himself better.

Living in the heart of the Slovenian Alps gave me a chance to develop all disciplines of alpinism: hard rock climbing and wild ridges in the summer, sketchy mixed climbing and ski touring in the winter. I am fortunate that climbing took me on expeditions all over the world, from Patagonia to Himalayas. Since being on the higher ground is my second home, becoming a mountain guide came naturally.

As a mountain guide I want to share my passion for mountains in a respectful and friendly way. What drives me is bringing the beauty of higher mountains and alpinism closer to people who want to enjoy higher peaks but need safe guiding.
