Highlights

 
     

    Located in the heart of Pennine Alps, in Valais, Switzerland, the Zinal glacier is an incredible thing to behold.

    7 kilometres long, the Zinal glacier is the purpose of this day long adventure. We will visit, explore and enjoy this mammoth glacier. And unlike other glaciers which you typically only get to see the surface of, at Zinal, you get to literally delve into this gorgeous slab of ice.

    With a sensational mountain looming above the glacier, you will feel small when you arrive. And when you enter, you will feel even smaller. Yet that won’t matter much, as you will be surrounded by beautiful glacial blue ice. The colours you will get to admire inside of the glacier are nothing short of spectacular.

    While the Zinal glacier is the purpose of this trip, the trek to get there is also very impressive as the landscape of the Swiss Alps is second to none.

    This trip will begin early at 8:30 am. We will be walking for approximately 4 to 5 hours throughout the day. And you will get plenty of time to gaze at, touch, and memorise the smooth contours of the marvellous glacier before we return. There will even be time for a lunch picnic as well.

    The uniqueness of being able to enter the Zinal glacier makes it a must see. And on this day long adventure, I would be happy to guide you through that incredible experience. To participate, all you have to do is send me a request.

    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 !
