Description

This 6-day Oberland ski touring program will take you through the mountains that lie between the canton of Valais and the canton of Bern, in Switzerland.

You’ll discover some amazing mountains in this remote area. And during our route through this extensive massif, you’ll find peaks that stand out for their altitude, but also for they have shaped the history of alpinism.

Indeed, mountains like Eiger, Jungfrau, Finsteraarhorn are a big part of European alpine history. These three peaks are among the most prominent in Switzerland and the scenery is truly exceptional!

So we’ll meet at the Pyrenees to drive up to Gründ in Switzerland, from where we’ll start our adventure. Then, we’ll spend the rest of the days skiing through glaciers, mountains and plateaus. One week later, we’ll arrive to Blatten after a truly unforgettable experience! You’ll go home totally renewed.

Some parts of the route require some technical skills and a very good physical condition. This is why this program is reserved for experienced skiers.

So if you feel like trying this demanding 6-day Oberland ski touring program, please contact me. Don’t hesitate to specify all your needs, so I can prepare the perfect trip for you and your group. 

And you can also check out these other ski touring options: 6-day Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route or 6-day Chamonix freeride ski tour.
