Description

In this occasion I want to invite you hiking on some beautiful glaciers of the Swiss Alps. From the Kanderfirn to the Lötschental glacier, a complete hiking program for the summer!

This traverse runs from Bern to Valais, over 3200 meters. We hike on the Kanderfirn, the Petersgrat and then the Lötschental. In fact, they are both situated in a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will spend the night in the lovely Mutthornhütte.

I really like guiding my friends and clients there because of the:
– fantastic views over the Bietschhorn
– nice sunset and sunrise
– remoteness and wilderness.

Tempted to explore these glaciers of the Swiss Alps? Then don’t hesitate to contact me so we can start this adventure! You can also check out this hike and photography tour in the Bernese Alps, where you will try your hand at lightpainting.
