Description

Three peaks stand out in the Bernese Alps: the Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau. These radiant mountains are well known among mountaineers for their stunning beauty. Of course, these are the Alps so topping these peaks requires proper guidance. On this 4-day Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau ascent, I show you to the summit of all three beauties.

Our tour begins from Grindelwald. From there, we will set off on the Jungfraujoch train to the Eismeer station. From this viewpoint, we’ll descend through the tunnel to the exit to the glacier. After crossing the glacier, we will then climb to the Mittellegi hut where we will spend the night before beginning our ascent to the three peaks. From then on, each day we will explore a different mountain. We will begin with the challenging Eiger which will take us around 10 hours. We’ll spend the night in Mönchjochhutte. Then, on day 3 we will tackle the easiest of these peaks, the Mönch, in approximately 5 hours and will return to the Mönchjochhutte. Finally, on day 4, we will ascend to the Jungfrau and the excursion will last around 7 hours.  From there we will return to the charming Grindelwald.

Due to the terrains and altitudes we will be exposed to, it is important that you have prior experience and a good fitness level. We will go through exposed rocky ridges, and run into stunning glaciers, so be prepared! And be prepared to revel in the beauty of these mountains as well! Of course, I will be there every step of the way to help and guide you to the summits of these three beautiful mountains.

Are you ready for a challenging and rewarding mountaineering excursion in the Alps? Then book your place now and join me to the beautiful Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau summits on this 4-day trip!

Do you feel the three peaks might be too much to handle at once? Then you can also explore one at a time at a slower pace! For example, you can start off with this stunning 2-day Jungfrau excursion!

Mountain Guide

Mountains have been a part of my life since childhood. I started doing more serious mountaineering expeditions at the end of high school after successfully completing all levels of mountain climbing courses. In the last 10 years, I have been at least on one expedition every year. I climbed in Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, the USA, Scotland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, France, Swiss, Italy, Japan, Pakistan, Tibet and Nepal.

I completed my training as a mountaineering guide and became a full member of the IFMGA family.

I enjoy climbing both Slovenian and foreign mountains.

Some of my most unforgettable and also the most successful routes:

Tsoboje - Slovenian direct (2021)
Kang Ri - East pillar (2013)
Janak - Blue racer (2012)
K7 West - The dreamers of the golden caves (2011)

The route I climbed on K7 West was rewarded with Piolet d’or recognition for mountaineering achievements in the world.

If you want to climb the north face of Triglav (Slovenia’s highest mountain) or any other walls in Slovenia, please contact me. I also enjoy guiding ski trails in winter in the Julian Alps.

Andrej is not extremely talkative but everything he said was gold. I hope to learn more from him, and it would be a great gift to humanity if he wrote some of his little stories in a little book.
