Have you ever dreamed of sleeping on the edge of a mountain? If so, you can do it on a Portaledge, in Frutigen in the Swiss Alps.

Words can never do justice to how truly incredible this experience is. The views you will see and the feeling you will have while seeing them will stay with you forever.

Firstly, we will meet at Frutigen at 12:30 in the afternoon. Afterwards, we check all the materials and equipment and make our way on a 30 minute hike to the mountain face. We will then make a safe ascent to the Portaledge. From there you will settle inside and behold the kinds of views people only see on postcards. You will be able to see Lake Thun. And as the night falls, you will see all of the colors of the sky. Finally, when you look down, you will also get to see all of the lights of Frutigen, before falling asleep, that’s if you can, of course, as the view will be begging for your attention all night.

After leaving your Portaledge the following morning, you will have breakfast, and have the chance to view the mountains, Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau, before we pack up and make our way back down to the valley.

So come and enjoy this breathtaking experience. Feel, sleep, and loom above the Alps’ most awe inspiring sights like a free bird perched on a peak. 

I’ll be awaiting your message.

And if you are interested in climbing one of the most beautiful peaks in the Pennine Alps, Allalinhorn, you can join me on this 2-day trip.

About the guide

guide profile img

I grew up in Switzerland in Buchs Valley and have been fascinated by the mountains since I was a kid. Since 2005, I have been able to pursue my passion for the mountains professionally, working as a mountain guide. I love the variety of activities and seasons: a steep descent in the Pul Lake, climbing rock walls or an ice fall, or going down a gorge in a neoprene suit and abseiling in impressive waterfalls. I like to share my love for the mountains with my clients and provide great and unforgettable experiences. When I am not working as a mountain guide, I'm a dedicated father of two kids, I love kitesurfing and to play the guitar. And I'm always looking forward to my next trip! I have been guiding in New Zealand for a summer saison 2005-2006 for a NZ company. I'm a IFMGA certified guide and I hold the
IFMGA Canyoning Guide licence as well.
