Description

The Mattertal and the Saas Valley probably have the most incredible four-thousand-meter peaks in the Alps. However many of them are little-known, almost hidden gems. Those who have had the opportunity to participate in these one-day tours have been surprised by the diversity of routes available.

I have therefore planned some daily programs both in Mattertal and Saas Fee. That way you can live in first person the sensation of being part of such an amazing landscape.

All of them will take no more than half a day. Please find below all the options you can choose in this region.

Alpine climbing tours in Mattertal

DISTELHORN NORTH RIDGE (2806 M)

It's the easiest and shortest tour and one of my favorites. Moreover, it is a suitable climb for mountaineers who want to gain some experience on the rocks. The route consists of a exposed ridge with tricky passages. I will guide a group of up to 3 guests. Price: 550 CHF per person.

SPARRU – FESTIHORN (3248 M)

It's a harder and more technical multi-pitch route. It is a perfect alpine climb for well-trained climbers who want to enjoy a good challenge climbing a wall in Mattertal. The group size cannot exceed 2 participants. Price: 690 CHF per person.

LEITERSPITZEN (3409 M)

A really high altitude climb in a wild and solitary surrounding. You'll have the opportunity to climb above the Täschalp. It's a private tour. Price: 800 CHF per person.

Alpine climbing tours in the Saas Valley

JEGIGRAT (3368 M)

A varied and elegant climbing day through excellent rough walls with incredible rock edges. An intermediate-hard ascent. It's a private tour. Price: 720 CHF per person.

SONNIGHORN (3487 M)

The Sonnighorn is well-known because of the quality of its rocks. You will enjoy a climbing tour in a lonely atmosphere with stunning views. The ascent takes place over the northwestern ridge and the descent via its southeast or northeast faces. You will need to have prior experience in alpine climbing. I can guide up to 2 people. Price: 690 CHF. 1-2 people.

PORTIENGRAT (3654 M)

It's the most famous alpine tour among the medium-hard climbs in the Saas Valley. A combination of rocky edges and several steep paths. Due to the technical difficulty of this ascent I can guide only one person. Price: 830 CHF per person.

DRI HORLINI (3096 M)

A really beautiful climbing itinerary in which we must cross from one wall to another on rock of exceptional quality. It is a constant change of route jumping splendid cracks. In the east wall there are numerous climbing options of intermediate-hard level, right next to the Almagellerhütte (mountain hut). Group of no more than two participants. Price: 680 CHF per person.

Saas Fee also offers many other options for those who prefer mountaineering. If you're one of them please check out these one-day mountaineering tours in the area.

Very user friendly platform with timely responses from Explore Share representatives. The trip itself with Tom from Alps Adventures was awesome and ensure that we had an experience that was 100% what we wanted. Recommend both the platform and the guide. Thanks to all for arranging and delivering so well.

I had am amazing time during the 1-day off-piste training course at Hoch-Ybrig. Urs, our main mountain guide, was very helpful in answering my queries before the course, and Lupe from explore-share was helpful in selecting the course. We had 3 groups under Urs, Mario and Patrick, and I was in the group with Patrick. He gave us a lot of nice tips and individualized video analysis. He made a special effort to convey everything in English, since I don't know German. All the participants were very helpful and friendly too! The course is good value for money as skis are included for the weekend in the course price.
