Come with me on this 7-day Monte Rosa ski traverse in the beautiful Swiss Alps!
Located in the Saas Region, in Switzerland, the Monte Rosa ski traverse has become very popular among skiers from all over the world, not only because of its spectacular glacier route, but also because of the variety of landscapes, the accessibility and the number of mountain huts that we can find in this area.
During this seven-day adventure participants will be skiing amazing peaks like Mount Breithorn (4165 meters), Piramide Vincent (4270 mt) as well as the Felik glacier and Lyskamm Glacier. We will be sleeping in the different huts we will find along the way. Every day we will have a different itinerary and I will be happy to safely guide you around this Swiss winter paradise!
You will find a detailed itinerary below!
This seven-day adventure is suitable for experienced skiers who are ready for a new challenge. So request to book this trip if you want to live a great adventure in the Swiss Alps!

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
