Type of Trip
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.
