    Join me for a private 2-day mountaineering trek up one of the many beautiful peaks in the Valais Canton in the Swiss Alps.

    In this incredible region deep within the Alps, you will find yourself surrounded by several 4,000 Meter Peaks. The most famous of those peaks is the Matterhorn, (4,478m). Looming over you like an invincible guardian, this impressive mountain stands as one of the highest in all of Europe. And with its almost perfect symmetrical, pyramidal peak, it is also one of the most unique.

    Despite the fame of the Matterhorn however, the Valais Canton is a relatively quiet area when it comes to mountaineering. Thus making it one of the more intimate climbing areas you can enjoy within the Alps. There is a peacefulness that comes with climbing in areas that aren’t filled with other climbers. That is a big reason why this is a private excursion. Just you and me climbing to the summit of one of the many available peaks. As I believe that will make the experience even more rewarding.

    However, don’t let the privacy of the Valais make you think it’s not worth just as much attention as other parts of the Alps. On the contrary, the Valais’ array of Snowy Peaks will offer views that will inspire and excite you.

    Some of the peaks we could climb include, Lyskhamm (4,527m), Taschhorn (4,491m), Nadelhorn (4,327m), Lenzspitze (4,294m), Weisshorn (4,506m), Zinalrothorn (4,221m) and Obergabelhorn (4,063m).

    With so many peaks to choose from, and each one offering a unique, unforgettable adventure, you simply cannot lose. So come, let me guide you to the top of one of the Valais’ beautiful peaks.

    I’ll be awaiting your message.

    And if you are looking to go somewhere that is filled with more people, you can join me for a full day of picturesque mountaineering at Chamonix here.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I've been skiing and climbing since my early childhood. I graduated in 2005 from the Univerzity of Hradec Kralove with a Master degree at the Faculty of Education. Since then I worked as a history and PE teacher. I was also running an Outdoor sport's club at that time, spending plenty of time climbing, skiing etc. with my students.

    In 2009, I became a full time skiing and climbing instructor.

    Licences:
    2009 – APUL C ski instructor
    2010 – APUL B ski instructor
    2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
    2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)
    – MSMT climbing instructor and Mountain leader
    2013 – entered the UIAGM mountain guide education
    2014 – passed the UIAGM Aspirant exam.
    2015 - Succeeded the UIAGM / IFMGA final exam

    Spending your holiday with you would be my pleasure. Whether in winter on a ski tour (in Czech Republic or Austria) or in summer among the spectacular sandstone towers.

    It will be, with no doubt, a very pleasant experience for all of us. I'm an easygoing, friendly and reliable person with a good sense for responsibility.

    Don't hesitate to get in touch with me !

    Awesome day of climbing provided by Jan. Extremely knowledgeable about the area and a fantastic climber and guide. This trip to Hruboskelsko was amazing in every way and climbing the towers an unbelievable experience. Would highly recommend this trip to all climbers, whether new or experienced.

    Jan was amazing, professional, funny, and inspirational. The way he dealt with us and individuals whilst having a joint venture. The climb was amazing, the route selected was perfect for ability. I proposed to my girlfriend at the summit after that amazing ridge. She said yes, Jan was in on it and accommodated this without sacrificing safety. We look forward to using Jan\'s services again. He was by far the best IMG I have used. Words cannot thank enough for the experience.

    We climbed locally in Turnov, which worked out perfectly. Jan was flexible and professional setting up a meeting spot and drove us to the climbing. He struck a perfect balance of grades and led routes I did not want to lead, and gave \"laser guided beta\" for gear on routes I did lead. We spoke of climbing, history, love, life, and politics while enjoying beautiful scenery. His local knowledge was obvious and enhanced the whole trip. While Czech sandstone is not for the faint of heart, Jan made this side of climbing very accessible and pleasurable far beyond my expectations. 10/10. If this trip is of interest to you, book with complete confidence.
