Ski Tour over the Bächilücke

The ski tour crossing over the Bächilücke is our secret tip in the Jungfrau Region. The alpine panorama on the first day is as impressive as the downhill run on the second. This 2-day guided ski tour leads you safely over the unique terrain of five different glaciers and treats you to fine food and other comforts at the cosy Finsteraarhorn Hut. A crossing of the Bächilücke is an absolute must for every ski tourer.

A mountain hut is not a hotel. Running water is not guaranteed and electricity is not available everywhere, so it is not always possible to charge batteries or phones. If you have special dietary needs, please inform us in advance so we can make arrangements with the hut.
