Description

Berner Oberland is part of the canton of Bern, in Switzerland. This 6-day ski touring adventure is your chance to explore this huge area under expert guidance. Join me!

On this tour, we will travel through the UNESCO Heritage Site Jungfrau-Aletsch, between the Bernese Oberland and north-eastern Valais. This region is home to the largest glaciers in the Alps and lots of over-4000m peaks. We will ski hut to hut on top-quality powder snow surrounded by a fabulous alpine landscape.

First, we will meet in Interlaken, a traditional resort town in central Switzerland. During the following 6 days, we will ski in the most beautiful spots in the area, such as Jungfraujoch (Europe’s highest railway), Äbni Flue Mountain, the impressive Konkordiaplatz, Grüneggfirn Glacier and Grünhornlücke Pass, among others.

Because each day we will be moving uphill for several hours and skiing around 800-1200 vertical meters,  you need to be reasonably fit for this trip. Additionally, you should also have some ski touring experience.

So, if you are up for this 6-day ski touring adventure in the Berner Oberland region in Switzerland, please contact me. Magnificent mountains, unspoilt nature and breathtaking views await us!

About the guide

I was born in 1979, grew up in Albertslund, just outside Copenhagen. I started climbing when I was 14 years old and I was immediately gripped by it. In 2000 I became a Rock Climbing Instructor (AK) and shortly after, in 2001, I moved to Canada to go to school - I took a degree in "Adventure Tourism". The real reason I traveled to Canada was the mountains and nature. The years I lived in Canada I used to develop my skills as a climber and alpinist. I also began training to become an international mountain guide. Since I have returned to Europe, where I have spent time climbing, skiing and being on tour. I have also completed my degree and I'm now internationally recognized as mountain guide and a professional working in the various mountain activities. During my years in the mountains, my passion for climbing and skiing have become stronger and stronger. As a guide and instructor, I hope to get the chance to share my passion and experience with you!
