Description

Let’s discover together, step by step, the beauty in simplicity. Still timid, Val d’Anniviers is a great charmer. Day after day, a contrasted universe between mountain giants and human warmth.

Of all the tours I offer in Switzerland and elsewhere, this is one of my favourites. Some of the reasons are:

  • The magic of Réchy valley and its geological richness;

  • The edelweiss fields greeting us;

  • The emerald colour of Moiry lake  and a drink at the shore, with my local products;

  • The majestic 4000m: Dent BlancheBisshornZinalrothorn…;

  • The mythical Weisshorn hotel and its history linked to the mountain and English mountaineers.

Below this description, you’ll find the complete itinerary for this 5-day trip.

All my hikes are adaptable and can be modified. Don’t hesitate to contact me for a customized program. I would love making you discover Val d’Anniviers, a place that I know so well.

About the guide

I'm a UIMLA mountain leader, a rescuer and a journalist. Since 18 years, the mountain is my office and my full-time job. My passion is about to transmit the small and big secrets of nature but also to allow everyone to find his right balance in an environment which might appear as hostile but which is actually a large reservoir of unsuspected individual energy. Here in the mountain, the masks fall down and that's the good point of it !

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
