Description

Join me on this 1-day program and discover a fantastic natural area as we hike the Julier Pass in the Central Eastern Alps, in Switzerland.

In the commune of Sankt Moritz, in the Canton of Grisons, the Julier Pass is a high mountain pass that belongs to the Abula Range, in the Alps. Apart from its beautiful landscapes, this is a very interesting historical area. Here, we’ll find remains of Roman cart tracks and constructions as well as million year old marine fossils.

The starting point of our hike will be La Veduta guest house, at an altitude of 2,233 meters. The trail will lead us through Val d’Agnel, near Piz d’Agnel, and we’ll contemplate the impressive Corn Alv. Afterwards, we’ll continue through an amazing desert landscape and find a lake in the middle of the mountains, the Fuorcla digl Leget, at an altitude of 2,711 meters. Finally, we’ll reach Himmelstor and descend through Val Natons and Alp Natons.

Please, take into account that it’s mandatory to have a very good level of fitness to take part of this trip. The complete duration of the program will be 6 hours with a distance of 11 kilometers. We’ll face an elevation gain of 500 meters at the ascent and 950 meters at the descent. Also, consider that the starting and ending points are not the same.

So, do you think this program in the stunning Swiss Alps would suit you? Then don’t hesitate to send the request and book your place. I’m sure you’ll love hiking across this beautiful natural area.

If you’re looking for more hiking programs in Switzerland, I also lead this 1-day hike in Lunghin Pass, a triple basin near Piz Lunghin. Check it out!

About the guide

After one year of training by the BAW, the time has come: since April 2016 I have been a certified hiking and snowshoe tour leader.

For some years now I have been travelling in the mountains in summer and winter with great pleasure. I would love to share one or two mountain experiences with you. So if you have time and desire for fresh air, exercise and impressive nature experiences, I am happy:
- to plan and guide a hike "dreamed" by you from easy to sporty
- to plan and carry out a hike according to your wishes.

In winter I carry out snowshoe hikes - again adapted to your individual wishes and possibilities.

With the best mountain and hiking greetings.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
