Description

If you join me on my guided expedition of the climbing wonderland that is the Saas Valley, I guarantee you will create unforgettable memories as we tackle 4000m ascent after 4000m ascent, all in 7 action-packed, fun-filled days in this gorgeous part of Switzerland.

Switzerland has the most amount of 4000m plus peaks in the Alps, and close by to the Saas Valley lies some of the most popular of these towering, grand and majestic mountains, such as Breithorn, Straalhorn and Castor.

The surrounding area is like something from a postcard, with the words idyllic and tranquil the first that spring to mind when surveying this delightful alpine countryside.

After meeting on the first day in Chamonix/Argentiere for a safety briefing and gear check, we depart on the second day to a spellbinding glacier located underneath the Allalinhorn, where a training session of your cramponing and glacier travel technique will be held. We then ascend the first 4000m high peak of the week, mighty Allalinhorn, before resting for the night in a cosy mountain hut or valley hotel.

The subsequent 4 days are exclusively dedicated to scaling more enormous 4000m peaks, with the goal being to reach the summit of at least one per day, whilst not forgetting to take advantage of and appreciate the fantastic scenery! The feeling of satisfaction and reward at the end of each day will be immense.

The final day entails a descent back down to the valley, where we drive back to Chamonix to conclude the week, having experienced thrills and adrenaline like no other!

Climbing and mountaineering to your hearts content in Switzerland is what dreams are made of – book now to live them!

For those who seek even more mountaineering adventures, I offer an “Alpine Semester” 12-day mountaineering course in the Austrian Alps, here!

I also offer alpine ice climbing in Chamonix for 6 days, here!
