Be astounded by the magnificent Alpine landscape in Valais. Your experienced guide Bruno Pfeuti will organize a tour based on your preferences to aim for an extraordinary experience.
What to Expect
As a longtime member of the Swiss Alpine Club and a keen cyclist, Bruno Pfeuti knows the Swiss mountains and the most beautiful places to spend the night.
Depending on the route, you'll need to be sure-footed and should not have a fear of heights. The distance of the ascent and descent will be mutually agreed upon, and guests in good to excellent shape are sure to get their fill of hiking. Cross majestic mountain passes and traverse the ridges, with the potential for summit climbs as well. You will also often get the chance to spot animals on the mountainside.
Recognizable sights from this region include the Barrhorn, a 3,000 meter peak, the Cornettes de Bise, Dents du Midi (main photo), and Ofenhorn. You can also take on the challenge of a 2 to 3-day Alpine hike around the Fletschhorn or Grand Combin, or Muverans.
For biking, it is recommended to cross the Bernese Oberland via Col de la Croix and Col du Pillon or take the mountain passes in and around the French department of Upper Savoy. From November to March it is possible to cross country ski in Kandersteg and Lötschental. It will be possible to rent equipment like skis for classic diagonal-stride skiing, shoes, and poles on site.
After booking, you will have a consultation to discuss options for extensions, levels of difficulty, meeting point and start time, overnight accommodations, deferral dates, and alternative programs in the event of precarious weather conditions. Other topics include an equipment list (for cabin stays a sleeping bag liner is required), travel tips, and advice on maps.
For a third day for 1-2 people, an additional charge of 240 CHF cash should be paid after the start of the tour.
