Type of Trip
Do you dream of climbing the Eiger by the famous Mittellegi edge? Do you want to put all the odds on your side to achieve this goal? Then this 4-day course in Eiger is for you.
Climbing the Mönch (4107 m) offers a good field to get acclimatised to altitude and practice walking with crampons. Indeed, this is exactly the plan for our first two days together in the Bernese Alps.
You’ll find the complete itinerary below this description.
Of course it is possible to make the ascent in 2 days if you have experience and are prepared.
You will travel with me or with a UIAGM high mountain guide in my team.
If you wish to experience this beautiful ascent and train for it during two days, to maximize your chances of reaching the summit of the Eiger, send me a request! It will be a great mountaineering experience.
And speaking about mythical ascents, you can also check out this 4-day guided ascent to Matterhnorn.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?

If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund.Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the 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!
