Saas Fee is a spectacular place for anybody interested in mountaineering. Located in the Valais canton of Switzerland, there are a number of amazing peaks to climb. Some of those peaks include the Weissmies (4,017m), the Nadelhorn (4,327m), Lenzspitze (4,294m), and the Alphubel (4,206m), which we will be climbing on this trip.
Over the course of 2 days, we will scale Alphubel. The mountain is a stunning peak that rests between Saas Fee and Zermatt. The summit is mostly covered in ice. As a result, the climb will have some tough spots, so some mountaineering experience is necessary. However, the challenge will be offset by the sheer beauty of the climb itself, as well as the magnificent view you will get from the summit.
There is so much to see from the top of Alphubel. Not only will you get to view Saas Fee, Zermatt, and all of the surrounding peaks of the Pennine Alps. You will also get to see the Dom glacier and the Fee glacier as well.
Alphubel is just one of the many highlights that can be found near Saas Fee. However, I can assure you that this peak is more than worth the 2 days needed to climb it. So if you would like to scale this wonderful mountain, and admire the canton of Valais from its summit, send me a message, and let’s make it happen.
