Right between the superb Daubenhorn mountain (2942 m) and the magnificent Rinderhorn peak (3448 m), there is a paradise for ski touring enthusiasts. The Gemmi Pass, part of the Bernese Alps, offers incredible panoramas and is an ideal place for beginners in this discipline.

That is why I created this program, perfect for those with an enthusiasm for ski touring. The slopes are suitable for every level and taste. The plan is to meet in Leukerbad, Switzerland, and take the cable car to our accommodation in the Gemmi Pass. We could stay at Hotel Gemmi or hike for 1 ½ hours to the Lämmernhut. The following days, we will not do anything else besides ski touring. The distant views of the Dom, the Matterhorn and the Weisshorn make it even more impressive and worth trying.

If you need a rest, we can easily go to Leukerbad to relax for a day in its thermal spa resort (the largest in the Alps!).

Booking this trip is your chance to practice a new skill and discover an incredible part of the Alps.

If you already have experience or want a different challenge, check out this ski touring trip from west to east of the Alps.

About the guide

I grew up in the mountains and have always loved being up there. I always knew I wanted to become a mountain guide and make a living out of this life-long passion. I've bee a certified mountain guide since 1989 and love showing my friends and clients what I think is the best in life.

I'm based in Frutigen, in the Bernese Oberland. During the summer, I mainly guide rock climbing here, in other parts of Switzerland (Wallis, Grisons...) and in some amazing spots, including southern France. During the winter and spring, I spend most of my time on my skis, in the Swiss Alps but also in Piemont, Austria, Arlberg...where I love to take my clients.

I liked my guide very much. He was really helpful and it shows that he has a lot of experience. It was my first via ferrata. It was very difficult for me but still, I would try again now that I know what to expert. I would definetly go with Albrecht again.

Had an awesome time! Got everything that I wanted to experience out of it. I will be seeing you next time I go to Switzerland, hopefully with other people to do another climb.
