Description

The Jungfrau mountain is the highest of three famous mountains in the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. The word Jungfrau means maiden or virgin. With her snow-covered summit, this peak is truly an emblem of beauty. To reach her top it's best to go with a seasoned guide. On this 2-day ascent of the Jungfrau, I will gladly show you the way!

We'll meet in Grindelwald. This beautiful alpine village has also starred in many films! Then we’ll take the Jungfraujoch train until the last stop – Jungfraujoch. From there, we will begin our ascent. The first day we will walk just a short distance (1 hour) until the Mönchsjochhütte where we will spend the night. The next day, we will start early in the morning, descend to the Jungfraujoch, cross the glacier and start to climb the normal way to Jungfrau. If we are lucky, when we set off for the summit we will enjoy a beautiful sunrise

Although this is not a terribly difficult ascent, it is important that you have prior experience in walking with crampons and ice axe and a good fitness level. During the last stretch, we will need to tackle a steep slope with snow and ice until we reach the summit ridge. Of course, I will be there every step of the way to assist and guide you. And, the stunning views will be the reward of some hard-earned work!

Are you ready to discover the beauty of the lovely Jungfrau? Then book your place now and join me on this 2-day ascent of the Jungfrau in the Swiss Alps!

If you haven’t practiced winter climbing for a long time or if you have some trouble with the altitude (maybe you haven’t been before above 400 m), I suggest you first to join me on a 1-day Monch ascent.

This is also a great ascent for those training for more challenging summits such as the Matterhorn. If you're up to it, make sure to sign up for the  3-day ascent of the Matterhorn via the Hörnli Ridge or the slightly harder Matterhorn via Lion's Ridge!

Mountain Guide

I’m a mountain guide based in Bled, Slovenia. Climbing and alpinism are a big part of my life and I feel like mountains are my second home.

I was introduced to the mountains by my father, a mountain rescuer and a romantic alpinist. He made sure that I don’t see the mountains only as a sports playground but also as a place where a person can enjoy and get to know himself better.

Living in the heart of the Slovenian Alps gave me a chance to develop all disciplines of alpinism: hard rock climbing and wild ridges in the summer, sketchy mixed climbing and ski touring in the winter. I am fortunate that climbing took me on expeditions all over the world, from Patagonia to Himalayas. Since being on the higher ground is my second home, becoming a mountain guide came naturally.

As a mountain guide I want to share my passion for mountains in a respectful and friendly way. What drives me is bringing the beauty of higher mountains and alpinism closer to people who want to enjoy higher peaks but need safe guiding.
