Description

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!

And if you'd like to check out some of my other programs, please take a look at my 6-day ski touring program in the Silvretta Alps or my 6-day ski touring trip around Piz Bernina.

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.
