The picturesque scenery of the Bernese Alps is the perfect setting for your next via ferrata adventure. The great rocks that build the peaks in the area, are enough to tempt anyone to climb them.

That is why I suggest you to try this exciting steel protected climbing route, also known as via ferrata. Various 1-day climbing tours in Gstaad, Grindelwald, Engelberg, and others.

Then, last but not least , the totally impressive Daubenhorn (2942 m), which has the longest via ferrata in Switzerland!

That alone should be enough to attract the adventurous climbers, but there is more. You will have the chance to test your limits knowing you are safe and guided by a professional. We could climb the superb Eiger-Rotstock, at 2663m, with a beautiful descent over the west face of the Eiger mountain or Kandersteg, known as one of the most beautiful and spectacular via ferratas of Switzerland.

This experience is designed for those with prior experience in climbing in high and exposed situations, and a good physical condition.

If you think you are up for a new challenge, you might want to try this. You can book it right now.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide

 
 

I grew up in the mountains and have always loved being up there. I always knew I wanted to become a mountain guide and make a living out of this life-long passion. I've bee a certified mountain guide since 1989 and love showing my friends and clients what I think is the best in life.

I'm based in Frutigen, in the Bernese Oberland. During the summer, I mainly guide rock climbing here, in other parts of Switzerland (Wallis, Grisons...) and in some amazing spots, including southern France. During the winter and spring, I spend most of my time on my skis, in the Swiss Alps but also in Piemont, Austria, Arlberg...where I love to take my clients.
