Description

For 3-days you will get the chance to explore the beautiful glaciers of the Oberland region of the Swiss Alps.

With so much available space to cover in the Alps, it almost seems impossible to see everything. However, on this planned route, you will see enough to spark memories you can revisit as many times as you want for the rest of your life. Flanked by the snow covered Oberland peaks, we will start high up, at the Jungfraujoch (3,466m). Which is a glacial mountain saddle that connects the incredible peaks of JungFrau (4,158m) and Monch (4,107m). From there, we will traverse the Aletschglacier until we reach the famed Grimsel Pass. We will also be passing the famous Konkordia and Finsteraarhorn huts.

Throughout this trek, you will get to marvel at the incredible scenery the Oberland region has to offer. From the highest mountains to the slightest crevasses, everything in this area is worth seeing. With the crisp, stone scented air brushing against your face. And the sound of your boots crunching against the rocks and ice beneath your feet, this trip is definitely one that will excite all of your senses. Thus creating a truly unforgettable journey.

Also, after you have tired yourself out physically from the trek, and mentally from all you have seen, we will stay in clean, beautiful mountain huts. The huts will have everything you need, so all you have to bring is a toothbrush and sleeping bag liner.

Let me guide you on an amazing journey, from what looks like the top of the world down to the bottom. Where after 3-days, you can turn and look back up at the glacial heights from which you trekked. And you can smile, knowing that you explored that amazing area in the Oberland region of the Swiss Alps.

Message me if that journey interests you.

And if you want to enjoy a more extensive, 5-day hut to hut tour in Oberland, you can also join me on this trek.

About the guide

I am originally from Tokoroa, New Zealand, but I'm now based in Interlaken, Switzerland. I started rock climbing at 19 years and moved on to alpine climbing two years later.

I began guiding in 2003 and am now a fully qualified IFMGA Climbing and Ski Guide. Apart from having extensive experience in New Zealand's Southern Alps, I also know the European Alps very well.

When guiding, I enjoy helping people achieve their dreams: whether it is climbing a summit or acquiring the skills to travel in the mountains. I like watching the dawn turn into a sunrise high on a summit when most people are still asleep and, when rock climbing, I enjoy unlocking a sequence that seemed impossible at first.

When not climbing, I like to ski long, steep, deep powder runs.

Tim was a great guide.  I had an amazing time and experienced some great routes.  We packed in a lot of different styles of climbing for a single day trip, and Tim did a wonderful job of selecting routes that would challenge me while keeping them obtainable and exciting.  He also took time to provide training in areas I have been working on.  He covered lead climbing techniques as well as proper safety measures.  I highly recommend Tim as a guide, and hope there’s a chance to climb with him in the future.  I expect I’ll be returning to Interlaken and will plan for more days of climbing when I do.
