Alps

2 Days

Jul - Sep


Description

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.

Mountain 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 !

This review is not for Jan Novotny, but for Juras Sefl. Unfortunately communication with Explore share was very haphazard, and I got the feeling if I hadn’t established contact a few aus prior to our climbing date, it wouldnt have happened. No contact from jan Novotny who was indisposed and got his friend Juras to fill in last minute. Juras Sefl was excellent, reliable and took excellent care of my first time climbing teenagers who felt safe in his hands and trusted him. I wasn’t so impressed with the head organisation, as I say, communication and organisation was not optimal and I wasn’t sure what kind of service we would get. No communication with the guide. Anyhow, the overall climbing experience with Juras was excellent.

Guide: Jan Hais! What a great ski tour our threesome had in the Giant Mountains in the spring of 2022, with our guide Jan Hais. The weather was great, as was the culture of alpine huts and mountain lore in the land of the giant, Krkonoše. But the trip was really pulled together in such a successful way by the skill of our guide. He was an expert at understanding our needs. We were strong and experienced in some ways, yet less so in others, particularly in the use of alpine touring gear. Jan expertly knew when to give us room to roam, yet to jump into help when we needed it. Excellent! We did seem to fall through the cracks a little in pre-trip communications—not our guide’s fault. However, Jan listened empathetically to our concerns and his professionalism reassured us. Thank you, Jan Hais. Thanks, too, to the team at Explore-Share for reaching out to us over our pre-trip hiccups.
