    I am happy to invite you to this 6-day ski traverse through the Bernese Oberland Haute Route.

    Come with me to the Bernese Oberland and let’s ski on huge glaciers, facing the wildest skiing spots. We will cross incredible mountains like the Jungfrau, Mönch and the Eiger. And as if this was not enough, we will also reach part of the largest glacier in the Alps: the Aletschgletscher.

    The Bernese Oberland is the highest region of the canton of Bern, located in the south of the canton and including the areas of Lake Thun, Lake Brienz and the Bernese Alps. The immensity of the glaciers and landscapes of the Bernese Oberland are really memorable.

    During this 6-day ski adventure we will sleep and rest in 4 incredible high mountain huts. Their surrounding landscape is spectacular, with breathtaking views of glaciers and high summits.

    If you want to join me it is necessary to have a good skiing technique as well as an excellent physical condition. This way you can enjoy and take advantage of this amazing ski traverse.

    If you are looking for quietness in a massif with mountains over 4000 meters and spectacular descents this is the perfect tour for you.

    So, contact me by filling out the form and let’s conquer the most outstanding points of the amazing Bernese Oberland region!

    We enjoyed this trip in the Alps very much!! It was an excellent introduction to mountaineering and the stunning peaks of the Alps massive. Our guide Martin made the full experience a succes; pushing us to the limits, keeping us safe at difficult rocky ascents, but also taking time to enjoy the scenery and the climb. Thanks a lot for the beautiful pictures too!

    This was a great 4-day hut-to-hut ski experience in the Pyrenees. The national park of Aiguestortes is beautiful and we had a lot of snow. Martin is a professional and social guide. He makes sure that the trip takes place from a pleasant and secure way. Due to the weather conditions we couldn\'t do the climb to the Montardo and to the Ratera, but Martin organized some alternatives to enjoy the 4 days. We were an international group and could communicate with Martin in English.
