Join us as we take you to the only place in the European Alps where it is possible to visit a UNESCO natural heritage on crampons – the Berner Oberland in Switzerland! Explore vast expanses of glaciers, trekking at the base of several soaring peaks above 4,000 m on this 6-day trek!
The trip takes you through the protected area of Jungfrau-Aletsch located in the Swiss Alps between the Berner Oberland and Valais. You are in for a special treat as you traverse snow-covered mountain ranges, scenic valleys and the largest glacier system in the Alps!
We’ll begin in the picture-perfect village of Fafleralp (1,790m) in the lush Lötchental valley. Ascending the Lang Glacier, we’ll cross the high Lötchenlücke pass to enter the magnificent Berner Oberland glacier system. You’ll be stunned to see the sheer magnitude of this area!
The trail leads to the top of Ebenefluh mountain where you’ll see spectacular vistas of the famous Jungfrau (4,158m), Mônch (4,099m), Eiger (3,970m) and Finsteraarhorn (4,274m) peaks!
We will spend the first two days at the cozy Hollandia Hut.
From the hut, we’ll head towards the large, flat ice mass of Konkordiaplatz and brave a strenuous hike to reach the Konkordia Hut. The next two days involve a loop through the core of the Berner Oberland. We’ll ascend the mighty Aletsch Glacier and climb to the summit of the Walcherhorn. The top offers jaw-dropping vistas of the iconic Mittellegi ridge.
Finally, navigating our way through the Jungfraufirn, we’ll descend to Fafleralp, marking an end to this incredible trek!
Even if you have never used crampons before, you are more than welcome to join us! You’ll be just fine so long as you are in good physical shape.

Professional guide who carefully assessed our climbing and fitness abilities to get to the top unfortunately we came down a bit too fast and I fell and broke my big toe and was unable to attempt the Mont Blanc climb which was very disappointing because I felt ready to try. We felt challenged but relatively safe all of the time, the fall was an unfortunate mistake. Jan offered us additional training between the climbs to improve our chances on Mont Blanc which we really appreciated but were unable to take advantage of. We would climb with him again.
My first experience with alpinism but 100% worth it. Because of bad weather we couldn’t ascend the Mont Blanc but the backup program saved the trip. Learned a lot and seen mighty things. Overall, enjoyed a lot, a week we will never forget.
We had a marvellous week, it matched our expectations and we had souvenirs which will never fade away. The flexibility from our program because of the bad weather, was great, each time we had a discussion about what we could do and couldn’t. Reaching the top was always the goal. Also the fact I did this with my daughter gave it an extra dimension. We enjoyed every step because we were in good shape. Everybody insisted on this, but at the end, it turned out to be an advantage.
I had a very good time and it has been a fantastic week to fulfill my dream of Mont Blanc, with extra reward of the experience of climbing Gran Paradiso, both mountains are amazing and we are blessed by very good weather. And thanks to Jan and my guide, they are always there to encourage me during the hardest moment, without them I can\'t do this.
Extraordinary experience to stand on the top of Europe. Emotionality because of the beauty and natural ferocity going into your body creates definitely a unique fuddle. Afterwards I had regrets I could not stay longer on the top, especially because the weather was clear and mild. Grandiose!
Top trip !!! Stunning views from the top of Europe. Enjoyable guides with enough experience. Having some luck with the weather, you really have to do it. It’s enough to have a good physical condition and some perseverance. Fun to do but it’s suffering and pretty expensive.
We had all ingredients for a marvellous holiday. The good weather, together with the professional support of our guides, the sublime Alps and the Top of Mont-Blanc, made it an unforgettable experience.
Great. Gran Paradiso was a good preparation and off course a nice experience. The one day ice course was fun and very useful. Because of bad weather, I also would recommend this program, which existed of 3 chances the reach the summit. If we had chosen another program, we probably couldn’t reach summit. Now we did it in blue sky conditions! It’s the flexibility (3 summit chances 2 by 2) of the program which I liked the most. It’s an incredible experience and will always have a special place in my memories. It’s a super feeling to stand on the top of Europe. I really recommend the program (Gran Paradiso + Mont Blanc); not relying on other people and having a maximum chance to get to the top. (With a good condition off course). I had to sacrifice a lot, but it’s worth it.
By following this program, we realised the grandeur of the mountains and the awe that we need to have for this environment. The practical tips our guide gave us where very helpful, also for our upcoming adventures.
