Description

This is an exciting 6-day adventure climbing two peaks over 4000-meters in the Saas Valley. If you are looking for an experience in the Alps without extremely demanding climbs, this trip is for you!

The Saas Valley lies off the east of the Canton of Valais, in Switzerland. We’ll start our trip in Saas Fee, which is the main village in the valley.

From there, we’ll use cable cars to gain altitude: that will make our climbs easier! Nevertheless, the peaks we’re going to climb are technically simple and will not demand you an excessive effort, despite their height.

This time we’ll climb Allalinhorn (4027 m) and Weissmies (4017 m).

But before that you are going to learn some basic mountaineering skills, like using crampons on snow and walking in a rope. Besides, you’ll climb an impressive via ferrata!

During the night, we’ll stay in pleasant huts and a nice hotel.

For further details, you can find the complete itinerary for this trip below this description.

Itinerary

Day 1: Spielboden-Langflue

We’ll meet and check your equipment. Then, we’ll take the cable car to us Spielboden-Langflue. It is the appropriate place to learn how to walk on crampons and have a first contact with snow and ice. We’ll also learn to walk in the rope. By the end of the afternoon you’ll have the basics mastered for the next few days.

Day 2: Britanniahütte (3030 m).

From the Mattmark reservoir we’ll start our run to the Britanniahütte (3030 m). Along the way we may use twice the crampons, which depends on the state of the snow on the Allalin- and Hohlaubgletsjer. (+ 850 altimeters).

Day 3: Allalinhorn summit (4027 m)

We’ll start the day early.

Today we climb to the summit of the 4027 m high Allalinhorn. The climb is technically easy. We return via the same route.

We have a shower and fresh beer in our base camp. (+ 600 / – 600 altimeters)

Day 4: Weissmieshütte

“The Erlebnispfad” gives access to the Almagelleralp where we can picnic. After a short climb we reach the hilltop “blumenpfad” where we may find Edelweiss. We conclude this wonderful day in the Swiss exuberant nature in the cozy Weissmieshütte. (+ 850 altimeters)

Day 5: Jägihorn (3206 m) - via ferrata

We ascend Jägihorn (3206 m) through the impressive alpine via ferrata. It’s a tough climb, but you’ll have steel cables and ropes that will be enough support to make it a viable and safe challenge. (+ 850 vertical meters).

Day 6: Weissmies summit! (4017 m)

We’ll climb the 4017 m high Weissmies. We’ll follow the track in the snow running through a maze of crevasses in the glacier impressive grounds. If you still fancy a last adventure challenge after the descend, we recommend the “ Monstertrotti” that brings you in no time back in the valley.
