    Come with me on this 6-day Tour du Ciel ski program and experience the opportunity of a highly challenging adventure in the Swiss Alps.

    All the way from the Swiss ski resort of Zermatt to the beautiful village of St Nicklaus, we will be spending our days in a high mountain environment skiing across massive glaciers surrounded by amazing mountains.

    As an alternative to the famous Haute Route in the Alps, The Tour du Ciel (Sky Tour) is a great opportunity for experienced skiers who wish to challenge themselves.

    The Arbenhorns (3860 meters), the Blanc de Moming (3657 meters) or the Bishorn (4153 meters), among other mountains, will be some of the peaks we will have to climb. The Glacier de Moming or the Glacier du Mountet, will be some of our options to descend. As you can see, this will be the opportunity of a lifetime!

    In the evening, will be enjoying the comforts of the small huts we will find along the route. Delicious homemade food and a cozy bed are everything you need after a long day of skiing in the Alps!

    You will find a more detailed itinerary below.

    This 6-day ski tour is a very physically demanding trip and it will take place in a high alpine environment. All participants must be skilled skiers (PSIA level 9) and have an excellent fitness level

    Keep in mind that in a normal day will be spending between 8-10 hours on our skis.

    I also offer several other ski touring programs. If you wish to do another ski tour in Switzerland, you can also join me on this  7-day Berner Oberland ski tour (advanced).

    So if you are ready for this 6-day tour du ciel ski program, request to book this trip!
