  • Spend a day trekking on the Ibex trail in the Swiss Alps.
  • See the beauty of the Saas Fee area.
  • Ascend to the top of Mallig and enjoy some fantastic views.

Description

A beautiful animal, and a famed symbol of the Alps, the Ibex goat is truly magnificent. And on this full day hiking trip, you will have plenty of opportunities to see the goat and its well known set of enormous horns.

This trek will begin in Saas Fee. From there, we will hike for approximately 10 kilometers through the Swiss Alps. Along the way, we will also ascent Mallig before reaching the trek’s highest point, which is approximately 2,752m. From this point you will be able to gaze far out into the Swiss Alps. You will be able to see a number of amazing  highlights from this altitude. Some of those highlights include Saastal valley, several 4000 meter high peaks and the Mischabel massif that has the Dom, which at (4,545m) is the highest peak standing entirely in Switzerland.

With so much gorgeous landscape to admire during this hike, the idea of seeing an ibex makes things even better. And on this trip, there is a good chance you will see one of these amazing animals either resting on a ridge or playing with other goats.

While not excessively difficult, this trek can be arduous at points, especially at the higher altitudes. As a result, it is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition.

Seeing Ibex goat’s, ascending Mallig and admiring the Saas Fee area in all one day. That is what you will get to do on this full day hike. If you would like to enjoy it for yourself, just send us a request. We look forward to guiding you.

We can also take you on a full day hike around the Salanfe lake at the foot of the Dents du Midi.

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
