A peak bagger's dream which puts you on top some of the best-known and most beautiful mountains in Switzerland.

Ski Touring Moderate, Difficult, Severe

This is a high altitude tour across huge glaciers and should be treated with respect, but if you get good weather and snow conditions, it's a fabulous tour of wild, wonderful mountains. You don't have to follow the exact schedule we've suggested because there are plenty of huts in the area and you can alter your itinerary according to conditions.

The adventure begins on the Jungfraujoch train which has featured in many famous mountaineering stories and which goes right through the middle of the Eiger. From there the iconic peaks just keep on coming, as do the welcoming and spectacular mountain huts.

All in all, this is rightly a classic tour amongst some of the most storied and picturesque mountains in the World.
