Description

The area around Saas-Fee in Switzerland is tremendous. Filled with some of the most beautiful peaks in the Swiss Alps, the views are unbelievable. However, on this trip, you will not just get to enjoy the area’s great views, you will get to climb to the summits of several of those aforementioned peaks!

For 5 glorious days, you will be ski mountaineering to the summits of the following peaks: Allalinhorn (4,027m), Alphubel (4,206m), Strahlhorn (4,190m) and Rimpfischhorn (4,199m). Each one of these amazing peaks will offer you exciting descents. And the glacial landscape will truly dazzle you.

In addition to the 4 peaks you will be scaling, all of which are part of the Alps’ 82, 4,000 meter plus peaks, you will be spending your nights in different mountain huts. Those huts include the Taschhutte and the Britannia hut. You will also be spending a night in the lovely Saas-Fee Inn as well.

Throughout this trip, you will be ascending between 1,050 to 1,500 meters per day and trekking for approximately 8 hours per day. As a result, along with having prior ski mountaineering experience, participants should also be in good physical condition.

Saas-Fee in Switzerland is a wondrous place. And on this 5-day trip, I would like to take you to the heights of that wonder as you make your way to 4 different amazing summits. If that sounds like an adventure you want to be a part of, just send me a request.

I also offer a 6-day ski mountaineering trip that will take you to 9 different summits on the Monte Rosa massif.

Mountain Guide

I'm a professional UIAGM mountain guide who works all over the world and has an addiction for traveling and working in many different places. I live in the southern part of Bavaria/Germany in a beautiful region called Allgäu. It's the perfect location to explore the Alps.

I work as a guide year-round and I love spending time with my clients in the mountains. Fulfilling their dreams and sharing beautiful moments together is what motivates me to do a great job every day.

I have spent a lot of time in the mountains since I was a kid. Mountaineering, climbing, ice climbing and running have always been a big part of my life and I hope to continue for many more years.

I was part of the German National Ski Mountaineering Team and have competed in all major global races, including Pierra Menta, PDG, Mezzalama, Tour du Rutor etc. I participated in many Worldcup races as well. This experience was very important for my guiding career in terms of motivation, knowledge and experience!

I guide my clients all over the world. I'll take you anywhere you want to go and we can reach a mountaineering goal together.

Please get in touch with me if you're interested in one of my programs or want to discuss a particular goal you have in the mountains. It will be a pleasure to make you an offer and discuss projects and plans for the future.

Hope to see YOU in the mountains.

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.
