Description

Join me on this 7-day Berner Oberland ski tour for advanced skiers!

Located in the magestic Swiss alps, the Berner Oberland is one of Switzerland’s most diverse regions. Famous for its spectacular mountains and massive glaciers, this 7-day ski tour in Berner Oberland will be the ultimate ski adventure you can find in Switzerland.

Our meeting point will be in the amazing Swiss ski resort of Grindelwald at 1034 meters. From here, we will take a train up to the Jungfraujoch where you will discover Europe’s highest railway station at 3,463 m above sea level. Definitely one of Europe’s top places to visit!

During the days to come we will be climbing the different peaks along the way, like the Finsteraarhorn at 4273 meters, the highest peak in the Bernese Alps. Or skiing down the amazing Ewigschneefeld glacier, one of the three main arms of the Aletsch Glacier.

At night, we will be able to enjoy the amazing local food that will be served in the different huts. After a long and exhausting day of intense skiing, nothing better than a cozy bed to rest.

Your will find a more detailed itinerary below!

Keep in mind that this adventure will be highly challenging as well as physically demandingHaving an excellent physical condition is mandatory for all participants. 

Also, all participants need to be strong skiers (PSIA level 9) as this is an advanced 7-day ski tour. Additionally, I would also advise all participants to bring ski touring equipment for this kind of ski trip.

So if you are ready for this 7-day adventure just request to book this trip and let´s start making plans!

We can also arrange this trip for intermediate skiers. Just take a look at our 4-day Berner Oberland ski tour (intermediate).
