Description

Explore Switzerland in a unique and exclusive way. Stay away from the ski resort crowds, or the noises of the bigger cities and venture into the wild. Follow me on this Saint Bernard trek, departing from Verbier, deep into the Swiss Alps.

Let us discover the wilderness of the Alps on this private trip. And what a better location than the Grand Saint Bernard. Its name came from the mythical rescue dog that inhabits these lands, as well as a 1,000 years old hospice, right at the top of its mountain pass. This incredible place lies between two colossals: Mont Blanc (4,807 m) and Grand Combin, overlooking the Alps in Valais.

The path we’ll follow will take us across rugged mountain territory, along the Italian/Swiss border. Also, we’ll cross 6 dazzling valleys, several mountain passes, meadows and a nature reserve. And of course, everything surrounded by the best views of the Alps. Furthermore, we’ll get to visit the Grand Saint-Bernard hospice, which holds a great historical significance.

Some of the spots we can explore include Bourg-St-pierre, Col des Chevaux, Col du Grand St-Bernard, Col Ferret, Combe de L’A Nature Reserve and Dranse. Then, we’ll cross mountain passes such as the Malatra pass and the Basset pass. We’ll tackle mountains like Mont Rogneux, visit charming towns like Liddes. And of course, we’ll stay at comfortable mountain huts such as the Bonatti Refuge, Mille Mountain Hut and Cabane de Mille.

So don’t let this opportunity escape. Enjoy Switzerland like you’ve never done before. Send me a request and let me guide you across this swiss trekking.

There’s also this  1+ day Canyoning in Valais and Ticino, Switzerland, that we guide as well.

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
