Join Jon, an IFMGA certified guide, on this ski touring trip through the highest peaks in the the Swiss Alps. You'll enjoy the best of Valais!
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!
