Description

Experience a unique ski tour on the glacier! In expert company you will reach lofty heights on skis and enjoy breathtaking views on the summit of the Walcherhorn.

Unfortunately, the Walcherhorn is always somewhat overshadowed by the Bernese four-thousand-meter peaks and hardly gets any attention as a summit. Completely unjustified, as you will discover after this tour. Look forward to a unique experience, lots of fresh mountain air and an impressive view at over 3600 m above sea level.

A full-day ski tour with a mountain guide from the Jungfraujoch to the Walcherhorn awaits you!

Meeting point: Grindelwald Terminal

At the terminal in Grindelwald you will meet your mountain guide and the rest of your group at 07:10. From there you will take the cable car to the Jungfraujoch.

Preparation: Equipment and clothing.

For this ski tour it is important that you have appropriate clothing and equipment. You can either bring your own equipment or rent one

Activity: Ski tour.

Arriving at the top of the Jungfraujoch, you reach the glacier through the tunnel from where you ascend to the Mönchsjochhütte in about one hour. Over the "Ewigschneefeld" you will then enjoy a welcome descent to the glacier hollow below the Walcherhorn

In about another hour through glacier depressions you then reach the summit of the Walcherhorn at a proud 3693 m.a.s.l. From here you enjoy the absolutely fantastic view of the south side of the Eiger! And far down in the valley you will discover the village of Grindelwald

While you regain your strength during a break, the mountain guide will surely have one or two exciting stories to share with you

  • Walking time: 5-6 hours
  • Distance: 9.5 km
  • Vertical meters up: 700
  • Meters of altitude descent: 700

The tour back is then again via the ascent route. The journey home in the late afternoon takes you from the Jungfraujoch back down into the valley.

Swiss Activities Tip

You haven't had enough of snow and ice yet? Then be sure to visit the Ice Palace on the Jungfraujoch! Created in the 1930s by mountain guides with their bare hands and pickaxes and saws, the Ice Palace today houses many impressive works of art and figures made of ice. Be sure to bring your camera!
