Description

Come join me on this 6-day Bernese Oberland Haute Route splitboarding traverse if you want to explore an incredible region surrounded by 4000 meters peaks with spectacular scenery and exciting descents!

The Bernese Oberland Haute Route is a marvellous tour that goes through the largest glacier network in the Alps!

The program starts in Grindlewald and will take us splitboarding to the southeast through white glaciers and high peaks where you’ll enjoy amazing powder slopes. We’ll spend the nights in charming mountain huts, where you’ll experience the traditional Swiss mountaineering atmosphere and feel the quietness of the mountains.

During this tour we’ll ascend to the great Finsteraarhorn (4260 m), the highest summit in the Bernese Alps. You’ll also reach the largest glacier in the Alps: the Aletschgletscher. Along the way we’ll cross some of the most amazing mountains in the Alps like the Jungfrau (3466 m), the Mönch (4107 m) and the Eiger (3970 m).

Sounds like an amazing tour? It is! Send me a request now and we’ll start planning your visit to the amazing Bernese Oberland region in Switzerland. You’ll spend an unforgettable adventure! 

Take notice that skiers are also welcomed!
