Description

Looking for a fantastic alpine ascent in the Eastern Alps? Then do not miss this chance to get to the top of Piz Bernina, a stunning 4,000-meter peak in Switzerland.

At 4,049 meters above sea level, Piz Bernina is the highest summit in the Bernina Range and the Eastern Alps. The mountain is situated in the Canton of Grisons in Switzerland and the range extends along Switzerland and Italy. On this program, we’ll take a route that will lead us across different peaks in the range.

First of all, on day 1, we’ll go from the Bernina Suot train station to Diavolezza Refuge, where we’ll enjoy dinner and spend the night. On day 2, we’ll start our ascension to the Vedretta di Pers and reach Piz Palü (3,901 meters). Afterwards, we’ll continue through the Bellavista Peak (3,922 meters) to the Marco e Rosa Refuge. Lastly, on day 3, we’ll reach the summit of Piz Bernina through the southeastern side and then head back to Diavolezza.

Please, keep in mind that it is mandatory for this program to have prior climbing experience and a good knowledge of the use of crampons. Moreover, it is important to have a very good fitness level.

Do you find this ascent attractive? Then all you have to do is send the request and make your reservation. I’ll be happy to be your guide.

To continue exploring the Alps, you can also join me on  this 5 day trek in Sentiero Roma!

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
