Skimountaineering tour Allalinhorn - Strahlhorn

Switzerland - Europe

Allalinhorn, Saas Fee - Allalinhorn, Wallis Alps
06.04 - 07.04.2019
The Allalinhorn and the Strahlhorn are among the most popular four-thousand-meter peaks in the Valais Alps. For good reason! Both offer a magnificent view of the four-thousander peaks of the Valais and Bernese Alps and from the Gran Paradiso to the Bernina.
And fantastic descents in high Alpine ambience, which are longer than the climbs. Ideal for ski tourers with some experience and the desire to climb once (or two) four-thousanders with the skis.

Your advantages at a glance:

- Two ski four-thousanders in Valais, the canton with the most four-thousand-meter peaks
- adapted group sizes for the best possible care
- long runs over the glacier, partly shortened by the use of lifts and cable cars
- High alpine environment, fantastic views
- Overnight in the famous Britannia hut of the SAC
