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! The programme is meant for experienced (mountain) hikers, but on the safe rope of your vertified IFMGA mountainguide you will hike over glaciers between the mighty 4000M + peaks from Saas Fee to Zermatt. 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.
On our first day, we will start with the instruction on the glacier high above Saas Fee. We practice the use of your ice axe, crampons and rope. Then we go to the Brittaniahut (3030m) where we spend the night. The next day we traverse beautiful glaciers to the Allalin Pass (3564m) and then descend to the Täschhut (2701m). After a long day, the beer tastes even better! We continue our way the next day towards Zermatt, through the Pfulwe (3314m) will stay in a beautiful location called Fluhalp (2607m), an ancient mountain farm. Here you will feel at home right away, the house radiates a lot of charm! Then we continue through the Riffelalp and Gornerschlucht and via Furgg, Trockener Steg we will arrive at the Gandegghut (3029m). Now we are really fit for the climb of the Breithorn (4162m) on our last day.
This program is very varied, for a number of days we cross glaciers and there are also stages where we walk across the mountainous trails. A perfect program for real mountain and nature lovers !
