Description

On this fantastic trip, you will get to climb to 3 glorious summits in the Valais canton of the Swiss Alps. Those three summits are the Weisshorn (4,505m), the Dent Blanche (4,357m) and Bishorn (4,153m). Each one of these peaks offers its own set of challenges, thrills, views and memories. And I would be happy to guide you to the top of each one.

I operate this trip on a 1:1 basis. Thus giving you the chance to enjoy a personalized experience that will benefit you in every way, from safety to improvement of your climbing techniques.

The trip will begin in Zinal. From there we will climb up to the first of four different accommodations, the Tracuithutte (3,256m). On the following day, we will make our way to 2 of the 3 summits on this trip, Bishorn and Weisshorn, before going to another comfortable, alpine hut. On the third day, you will enjoy a scenic trek through a beautiful valley to the commune of Randa before transferring to Herbriggen, where you will spend the night in a hotel. Finally, on the fourth and fifth days, you will climb up to the Dent Blanche refuge, where you will spend the night, before making your way to the spectacular Dent Blanche summit.

It is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition. You should also have prior climbing experience as well.

3 of the 82, 4000 meter plus peaks in the Alps, Bishorn, Dent Blanche and Weisshorn are absolutely stunning peaks, offering equally stunning summits. If you would like to visit all of those summits over 5 exciting days, just send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
