Get the chance to enjoy 3 beautiful climbing traverses: Dri Horlini, the Portjengrat and the Mittelrück, from the Almagellerhütte in front of Saas Fee, together with Yann or any other IFMGA mountain guide of his team from Valais.


3 Days

Jun - Sep




The Almagellerhütte or Almageller refuge is located in front of Saas Fee in the Valais at 2894 meters high. It is very well-known by mountaineers who want to tackle the Weissmies climbing traverse but less known among rock climbing enthusiasts.

Me and my team of IFMGA mountain guides we offer a 3-day climbing program to discover different climbing routes around the Almagellerhütte including some great ridge traverses like Dri Horlini, the Portjengrat and the Mittelrück ones.

You probably never heard about those names before but I can tell you that these climbing routes are really awesome and accessible in terms difficulty level (max 4C).

Below this description, you can find an example of a 3-day itinerary.  If you wish, we can even include into this program the climbing traverse of Weissmies.

I will take maximum 2 people with me on the rope. If there are more participants in your group, one or several other guides of our team will join us.

Please get in touch with me if you are interested about this program or if you need a guide for any other mountain project your would have in mind, during the summer or winter. It will be my pleasure to guide you and share with you my mountain guiding experience.

About the guide

Mountain Guide

Attracted by the mountains since childhood, I started with climbing and alpinism. I then discovered my passion for ski touring.
I started a Young&Sport instructor training to lead young people in the mountain, accompanied by guides. This experience inspired me to become a mountain guide, and I got certified in September 2015.
I work in a guide's office with other guides friends as Stéphane, Raphael, Christian and Jean-Luc, mountain leader.
What I love the most: make people enjoy, allow them to discover a region, laughing, everything in a safe way.
So if there's something you wish, if you dream of exploring a region or country, don't hesitate to contact me.
See you soon for new discoveries!

What people are saying about Yann


2 jours fantastiques, avec un guide qui ressent bien jusqu'ou il peut pousser ses clients, qui explique beaucoup sur les techniques et la lecture du terrain (un grand plus!), et qui de plus est très sympa. A refaire chaque année! Bruno, Renaud et Mathieu


I often ski with Stephane. He is a very nice guide with a very good knowledge about security. He is always looking for the best spots which will combine excellent snow and safe conditions. He is very communicative and friendly.



Yann is a Young, Energetic and Experienced mountain guide. We have been Touring for 4 days in the Jungfrau Region with very mixed weather conditions. Yann showed me his abilities to lead under very tough weather conditions. Although always looking for Adventure and Challenges, even under the tough weather conditions, he proved his experienced as a guide and knowledge of the region. Safety is always first and from there we strive for our limits. We had an amazing 4-days and future adventures with Yann have already been discussed! Definitely the guide i want to rely on high up the mountains!



Après avoir du changer d'objectif initial à cause de la météo, nous étions parti pour le Zinalrothorn. Malheureusement, la roche était givrée et nous avons du faire demi-tour juste en dessous de l'épaule (4017m). Grâce à Yann qui connait bien la région, nous avons pu rattraper la journée en allant faire le sommet du Blanc de Moming par l'arrête E ou arrête du Blanc, très esthétique, bien raide et effilée. Malgré la déception due à la météo, nous avons malgré tout passer une journée incroyable en plein coeur de la Couronne Impériale. Je recommande vivement Yann et Jonathan. Vraiment sympas et très pros, on se sent en sécurité en toutes situations. Et leur connaissance du terrain permet d'envisager des alternatives de qualité. Merci a Explore-share.com de nous avoir mis en contact!



Once again it was a great experience and I was so happy to do it with Yann. It was only myself this time and we did a 3-day tour, came back on Saturday evening completely exhausted (which is a good sign!). This time he really challenged me and that's also what i was looking for. the first 4000m peak was climbed and it definitely taste to much more! The area is so impressive and spectacular!
