Get lost in the Alps with this Haute Route du Soleil ski touring program from Andermatt to Simplon Pass, in the company of IFMGA-certified guide Edward.
This Haute Route du Soleil (Andermatt-Simplon Pass) ski tour is a real treat for the real ski touring fans and snow lovers!
The Haute Route du Soleil is an incredibly beautiful route that goes by wonderful valleys and mountains in the border between Switzerland and Italy. It has some of the most amazing views of the Alps and every year it gets covered in snow, so it’s a perfect journey for nature lovers!
And one of the best features of this route is that this area is much less crowded than many other spots in the Alps. You’ll find a real solitude feeling in this area, which will allow you to get in touch with nature and its atmosphere. The mountain huts will use to spend our night are also less populated.
During this journey we’ll climb some iconic peaks like the Blinnenhorn (3373 m), Hohsandhorn (3182 m) and the Breithorn (3366 m) or Monteleone (3553 m). The program is not a very technical demanding expedition, but you’ll need some touring experience and a good physical condition.

In 1987 I became a certified mountain guide after an intense four-year training program at the Technical University of Munich, thus becoming the first guide from the Netherlands to be IFMGA-certified and probably worldwide one of the first guides not originating from an alpine country. As a guide, I do everything from beginner courses in the Alps to worldwide climbing expeditions to the Seven Summits.
Based in Switzerland, just a few kilometers from the French town of Chamonix, I offer customized programs, tailor-made for each of my clients. As an alpinist and mountain guide, I’ve participated in many succesful expeditions, including Mt. Everest (north and south sides), Cho Oyu and Shisha Pangma (Tibet), Aconcagua (Argentina), Yerupaja South Face and Huascaran (Peru), Ojos del Salado (Chile), Mt Hunter and Denali (Alaska), Elbrus (Russia) Carstensz Pyramid (West Papoua) and Kilimanjaro (Tanzania). I’ve led two UIAA expeditions for talented young climbers: one in China and one in Pakistan. Both were very successful and led to the opening of some new (and sometimes difficult) routes. I’m always looking for new and challenging ski areas and, in recent years, have specialized in ski safaris and ski touring in the Alps, Morocco, Canada, Chile and Scandinavia. Adventure skiing is my passion since a long time and the challenge is to find the best snow and safe skiing and have fun with the group in a remote location. A father of 2, in my spare time, I like to go skiing, mountain biking and climbing with friends and family.
Fantastic trip with a great group! Edward made the most of the spring conditions. We were blessed with sunny days - touring in shorts and t-shirts. Beautiful views, skiing over fjords, after great ascents! Long descents, all in all an amazing week!!
My first proper ski touring trip and I didn’t really know what to expect...it was amazing In every respect. The scenery was stunning and accommodation perfect at MIT FabLab. Haakon looked after us at FabLab and Edward out on the mountain. I felt safe and exhilarated at the same time. The group were diverse with a sense of fun and a common interest in being out on the mountains. It really was a privilege for me to share the week with them. I look forward to another trip next winter. Bob
Fantastic mountain guide with an incredible singing voice!
