Description

From Valais to Bern, the Oberland area of the Swiss Alps is a wonder. Both for the views and the splitboarding opportunities, it makes for a fantastic experience.

For 7 day thrilling days, I would like to guide you through the best parts of Oberland. Everyday on this adventure, I will take you to the top of some of the best, highest, and most famous peaks in the area. Just a few examples of the peaks you will get to climb and descend include the following.

  • Monch (4,099m)
  • Hinter Fiescherhorn (4,025 m)
  • Finsteraarhorn (4,274 m)
  • Wysnollen (3595 m)
  • Kranzberg (3666 m)
  • Mittaghorn (3890 m)

I would also like to show you some of the area’s most impressive glaciers, including the Lang glacier and the Anun glacier. Furthermore, throughout this trip, you will be staying in different mountain huts. All of the huts are at high altitudes. Hence giving you a continuous mountain experience that you can enjoy day and night. The huts where you will be staying include the following.

  • Finsteraarhorn mountain hut (3,048 m)
  • Mönchsjoch mountain hut (3,650 m)
  • Konkordia mountain hut (2,850 m)
  • Hollandia mountain hut (3240 m)

When you consider those peaks, huts and glaciers, along with scenic drives and gondola rides, you know you are in for an experience you will never forget.

This trip is geared toward experienced splitboarders and mountaineers. Participants should also be in good physical condition as well.

Oberland is a paradise for people who want to enjoy the crisp air of the Swiss Alps. And the fun you will have during the various descents will thrill you, even when looking back on it. So send me a request, and let me guide you for 7 glorious days.

I also lead another week long splitboarding tour in Valais as well.
