This 6-day Valais ski touring trip will take you to so many 4000 m peaks that it will be hard to believe!
In Europe, the Swiss canton of Valais is a synonym of high mountains. Plus, it is one of the wettest regions of Switzerland, so there is always lots of snow. Due to these two factors, you'll find some of the highest and most perfect ski routes in the Alps here in Valais.
Indeed, I offer you to go on a journey from Saas Fee to Zermatt. During our ski trip, we'll ascend some of the Alps' most famous mountains, including Signalkuppe peak (4554 m) or Dufourspitze peak (4634 m). Also we'll go through glaciers and you'll be able to choose some of the peaks we'll summit!
A special feature of this adventure is that we'll sleep in amazing mountain huts. We'll visit the Margherita mountain hut, which, at 4554 metres above sea level, is the highest building in Europe!
So please let me know if you’re interested in this 6-day Valais ski touring trip. And please specify all your requests so I can make the proper arrangements!

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Spain
I’m a mountain guide and alpine ski instructor and trainer.
Since many years ago I enjoy transmitting the enthusiasm that I feel for the mountains, in any of the possible mountain disciplines: alpinism, ski, climbing…
I’ve always had a special interest for sports and teaching sports at all levels, from beginners to complex guiding in all kind of mountain terrain.
I’m extremely happy with the ease with which I could book via your site reliable and experienced guide. Thank you so very much, and I’ve started to recommend your site to my friends. Dimitris is not only an awesome guide, but a wonderful person who was always looking out to give me the best experience I can have when he found out how much I love climbing! He is the Best!
I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.
I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.
Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!
Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
