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.
