Description

Join me on this incredible 3-day hike along a spectacular balcony route, from Saas Fee to Zermatt. We will enjoy the most breathtaking scenery, with the view of the most beautiful 4000m peaks in the Alps, and finish at the foot of the Matterhorn, after walking on the longest suspension bridge in the world!

This beautiful and demanding hike will also give us the chance to observe the wild life and natural beauty of the Alps. Along the way we may encounter ibex, marmots or some chamois.

We will meet in Saas-Fee, the main village in the Saas Valley, in the canton of Valais. We begin our hike on a balcony path, taking in the most stunning views of the Alps during this 3-day tour. On the first day, at the end of the walk, a lift will take us to the village of Grächen, where we spend the night.

On the second day of our tour, we transfer to Gasenried. The climb here is tough. We spend this night in a room with several beds at the Europa Hut. Finally, on the third day, we cross the longest suspension bridge in the world! You need a good head for heights for this great crossing.

The fascinating Mattherhorn or Cervino awaits us in the beautiful city of Zermatt. We finish our tour with a well deserved aperitif.

About the guide

I'm a UIMLA mountain leader, a rescuer and a journalist. Since 18 years, the mountain is my office and my full-time job. My passion is about to transmit the small and big secrets of nature but also to allow everyone to find his right balance in an environment which might appear as hostile but which is actually a large reservoir of unsuspected individual energy. Here in the mountain, the masks fall down and that's the good point of it !

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
