Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
This 6-day Piz Bernina ski touring program will strike you as one of the most beautiful adventures of your life!
Let me take you deep into Alps. This 7-day traverse crosses the most eastern side of the Alps. We'll ascend the most emblematic peaks in this region: Piz Palü (3900 m) and Piz Bernina (4048 m).
During the journey, you'll see spectacular glaciers with huge drops and unique scenery. And we'll have the pleasure of climbing Piz Bernina, the highest mountain of the eastern Alps.
Because of these big drops and some highly technical parts of the route, this trip is aimed at skiers with previous experience in alpine traverses. Depending on your wishes, we can make some changes to the itinerary. But with this proposal you'll get to visit the most spectacular and emblematic areas of the eastern Alps.
So please contact me to make this Piz Bernina ski touring program happen. And please specify the number of people in your group and any other request that you may have, so I can make the proper arrangements in advance.
You can also check out some of my other programs, including my 6-day Chamonix freeride skiing program and my 4-day Northern Carros de Foc ski touring program.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
