Join an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, and reach the summit of Monch, one of the three big mountains of Grindelwald, Switzerland.



1 Day

Jun - Nov




The Monch (4,107 m) is a famous peak in Switzerland’s Bernese Alps, and also the most climbed. On this amazing 1-day trip you will have the chance to reach to its summit under expert guidance.

Together with Jungfrau (4,158 m) and Eiger (3,970 m), Monch forms one of the most popular groups of mountains of Switzerland. Located on the border of the Cantons of Bern and Valais, it is the easiest of the three big mountains to climb, so it is perfect for an introduction to mountaineering in the area.

Climbing Monch, which was first summited in 1967, is a special and unforgettable 5-hour mountaineering experience. We will hike and climb on exposed and snowy ridges with wonderful views of Eiger and Jungfrau.

The starting point for this climbing tour is Grindelwald (1,034 m.), a small and charming village with incredible views, situated at the foot of the Eiger Mountain.

So, if you are up for a unique ascent to the top of the Monch, please contact me! I am sure that this mountaineering tour will be a once in a lifetime experience for you!

Mountain Guide

Ever since I was born in 1977, I was motivated by a force of freedom. As an adolescent I sought to plunge deep into myself; to know and find myself. I found an answer in the wide open spaces, deserts, journeys and bike rides across thousands of kilometers that nature offers.

Nature is a way to connect with oneself, others and the 'rest'. Sharing these amazing experiences makes them so deep that they defy the very mountains, as we vibrate with a real and powerful energy. Through flora and fauna, through plain and summit: nature teaches and shows us the way.

I live at Jura Neuchâtel. I am married and a father of two small children. I have also been responsible for mountaineering camp and have received a "J + S" recognition (Youth and Sports). I will happily guide you across these mountains.

My only comments would be that this isn’t a beginner’s course . Levels of fitness and equipment needed should be in initial advertising
