Highlights

 
     

    The Tour du Ciel (Sky Tour) is a great alternative to the famous Haute Route in the Alps. We’ll go from Zermatt to St. Nikolaus in an amazing 7 days!

    Like its name suggests, this traverse takes place in a really impressive high mountain environment. We’ll see and ski on several four-thousanders during the trip: Obergabelhorn, Zinalrothorn, Weisshorn and Dent Blanche, among others. Several exposed ridges, fantastic glacier slopes and also some beautiful crossings will be on the agenda.

    Believe me: you won’t get bored! Far away from the crowds and amid the most perfect stillness, this ski tour is perfect for those looking to spend some quiet time in contact with nature.

    You should be able to ski on all types of snow conditions and also all types of terrains to be able to participate in this ski tour. A very good physical condition is also necessary.
