Day 1: High altitude ski tour to the Walcherhorn 3693m
Meet your guide at Grindelwald Terminal and make your way to the Jungfraujoch. You will climb to the Mönchsjoch Hut and then descend via the Ewig Schneefeld (“eternal snowfield”). This descent will position you just below the Walcherhorn where you will begin your leisurely approach to the summit. At the top you will have impressive views of the Eiger south face and Eismeer. You will descend along the Fiescherhorn group to Konkordiaplatz, where you will access the Konkordia Hut via the stairs.
Day 2: Ascent to Kranzberg 3666m
Between the Jungfrau and the Gletscherhorn, the Kranzberg stretches southward to the Konkordiaplatz. You will climb to the summit via the south glacier and survey exceptional surroundings, as this summit is uniquely framed by towering, majestic peaks. After a descent over the Kranzbergfirn you will ascend past the Lötschenlücke to the Hollandia Hut at 3240m.
Day 3: Ascent of the Aebniflueh 3962m
Early in the morning you will ascend towards the summit via the Aebnifluehfirn. The climb is steep, and even more so towards the top, but the panoramic summit views are more than worthwhile. During a rest on the summit, you will enjoy the surroundings of the UNESCO World Heritage site before your descent. On the way down you will make one of the longest descents in the Alps as you ski past the hut and continue over the Lang Glacier to Blatten in Lötschental. Journey home in the late afternoon.
