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.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
