Summer is the perfect time to discover the fresh high alpine world. For experienced mountain hikers and sports lovers who like to go off the beaten track in the Alps and search for adventure, our program offers a range of challenges for active holidays.
Our guides will take you to rough terrain, on rocks, glaciers and high mountain peaks; places which are not accessible to the mass. In addition, they share with you to the secrets of the high alpine mountains, they point you to the dangers, learn you climbing techniques and give you the necessary confidence. During our tours and courses in the Alps, you will learn new values and will gain important experience that can be useful later when traveling independently or on an expedition.

Matterhorn (4478m) extension program

The Matterhorn is definitely the most iconic mountain in the Alps. But it is also one of the more difficult 4000m peaks of the Alps. This mountain is exclusively reserved for experienced mountaineers and therefore previous experience in climbing alpine routes in rock is required. You can book this program in combination with one of our other Alps trips so that you appear sufficiently acclimatized at the start. For this climb we count 1 participant per guide. That is why this climb can only be booked as a private package.


high peaks around Saas Fee

The wellness hostel, located in car-free Saas Fee, is a very comfortable base for fantastic glacier tours and climbs. We limit the number of nights in the high-altitude and rather uncomfortable mountain huts, without affecting our performance; making long, challenging glacier tours and climbs. This program is also very suitable for private arrangements between July 1 and mid-September. A varied mountain sports week with plenty of options and flexibility!


Haute Route Barrhorn to Bishorn (4143m)

This beautiful high alpine tour goes from the Mattertal to the Val d'Anniviers in Valais, Switzerland and includes the ascent of the 4.143m high Bishorn. This trip is perfect as part of your self-organized holiday in the Swiss Alps. You can leave your car in the valley and the meeting point and end point are easily accessible by public transport. The huts are very pleasant and perfectly organized and the views breathtaking!

Haute Route Verbier-Zermatt with Via Ferrata and Breithorn

This adventurous glacier tour with Via Ferrata and the ascent of the 4164m high Breithorn is a physically challenging but very varied. During the entire program you'll stay at altitude; the daily stages run between 5 and 8 hours, mostly in snow and ice, but also over moraines and rocky mountain paths. In terms of overnight stays, we pay a lot of attention to comfort; we sleep twice in a hut and the other nights in mountain hotels or lodges, partly with wellness facilities.


Breithorn beklimming

Bernese Oberland-Valais Haute Route

Your first 4000m peak

Hut-to-hut From Saas Fee to Zermatt with the climb of the Breithorn (4162 m)

This glacier trek is is a great start for your mountaineering career!

We overnight on our way alternatively in mountain huts and a mountain hotels, where a shower and private room can provide some extra comfort. At the end of the week we are well acclimatized and then we will climb the beautiful mountain high above Zermatt, the Breithorn 4162m.

Bridge swing / pendule in Finhaut

Are you looking for an original activity and good thrill? Then try our giant bridge swing in Finhaut! This is a huge swing made by mountainguides underneath a bridge over the valley of the Eau Noire river. A great half-a-day activity for schools, youth camps, team outings and friends groups. 

In case you are in for an exciting and fun full day programme with some extra adrenaline rush, then combine the swing with the nearby located 60m abseil / rappel and a zipline over the river.

10 of the highest Swiss peaks in one  week!

On the border between Switzerland and Italy, a number of high altitude snow and ice peaks are located challenging side by side. In 5 days time you can climb about 8-10 4,000 meter peaks!

It's obvious that this is one of the most popular tours of our program. A beautiful glacier traverse in the heart of the Valais Alps with numerous climbs in the second highest mountain massif of the Alps (after Mont Blanc).

This tour is gradual in height adjustment, but we recommend that you'll acclimatize a few days before the tour starts. Very nice is the contrast of climbing on the vast white glaciers in the high alpine mountains and the green valleys, forests and typical Italian mountain villages of the Val d'Ayas.

Top & Technique - basic alpine skills (Espace Mont Blanc)

During this intensive introduction course in rock and ice you'll learn all the elements of the real climbing work with the aim of climbing some mountain peaks.

You'll learn to climb independently in rope groups of 2 or 3 persons. All basic techniques in rock, snow and ice are discussed and practised. You'll learn to walk across blocks and snowfields, rock climbing techniques with climbing shoes and dealing with ropes. Route selection, cramponing techniques, crevass rescue, fall techniques with and without ice axes and abseiling make all part of the programme.

This is the mother of all glacier traverses !

Elbrus (5642m) summer expedition

The Elbrus, Europe's highest mountain, is located in the Baksanvalley in the heart of the Caucasus, on the Russian/Georgian border. Via Moscow you can fly to Mineralnye Vody in the Caucasus. This programme provides an extended acclimatization. During the first days we gently acclamatize while enjoying the beautiful mountains. After having climbed the Little Kogutay 3850m, or depending on the circumstances, another mountain, you are well prepared for the ascent of Elbrus

We have allocated sufficient days to climb Elbrus Westsummit 5642m and / or east summit 5621m through a classical, not technically difficult but long route. After having climbed the Elbrus, you have the possibility to schedule a visit to Moscow.

Climbing the Mont Blanc (4810 m)


The Mont Blanc ascent (4810 m), the highest peak of the Alps, is a challenging tour that requires stamina and physical and mental strength. This ascent, often labeled as easy, should not be underestimated. It is for adventurers with ample alpine walking experience and a high level of fitness.

Mont Blanc (F) - 4810m and Gran Paradiso (I) - 4061m

An action filled mountain week with the roof of the Alps as the highlight - top ascent in 3 days!

The Mont Blanc ascent (4810 m), the highest peak of the Alps, is a challenging tour that requires stamina and physical and mental strength. This ascent, often labeled as easy, should not be underestimated. It is for adventurers with ample alpine walking experience and a high level of fitness.


Kilimanjaro (5895 m)

Slechts 3 graden ten zuiden van de Evenaar torent de majestueuze met ijs bedekte bergtop boven het Afrikaanse savannenlandschap uit. De Kilimanjaro is met 5895 m de hoogste berg van het Afrikaanse continent en meet aan de voet 50 x 80 km. De berg heeft 3 toppen: Shira, Mawenzi en de met eeuwige sneeuw bedekte hoofdtop Uhuru Peak. 

We mijden bewust de overlopen “coca-cola”-route en inmiddels ook de zeer populaire Machameroute op de Kilimanjaro. Qua acclimatisatie zit het programma goed in elkaar; de afgelopen jaren bereikten alle deelnemers de top.
