Join Edward, an IFMGA certified guide, on this Mountaineering traverse from Saas Fee to Zermatt. Enjoy the perfect adventure for mountains lovers.
This Mountaineering traverse from Saas Fee to Zermatt is a great way to climb your first four thousander, because it goes to the Breithorn summit (4162 m)!
So this program is an amazing start for your mountaineering career! Its designed for experienced mountain hikers who want to push their limits. Always paying lots of attention to the safety measures and having fun.
This 6-day trip will start in Saas Fee and we’ll hike through amazing valleys all the way to Zermatt. We’ll spend the nights alternatively in mountain huts and a mountain hotels, surrounded by the most beautiful scenery.
I’ve designed the expedition so you can acclimatize and warm up for almost a week before the final climb to the great Mount Breithorn (4162 m) located right above Zermatt. This will be the final stage of the trip and I can guarantee you’ll feel enormously satisfied once in the summit.
Also, during the week you’ll learn different climbing techniques like the proper use of an ice axe, crampons and rope. We’ll cross glaciers tied up and hike through the mountain trails, and I’ll teach you some tips to enjoy the most out of the mountain adventures!
So send me a request to make this 6-day Mountaineering traverse from Saas Fee to Zermatt happen for you. And I promise you, once we get to the summit of the Breithorn you’ll thank me for ever!
Mountain huts and a mountain hotels.
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
