Day 1: Traverse of Arpelistock to Geltenhütte 2003m

Meet your guide on the Col du Pillon and take the cable car to Les Diablerets- Glacier 3000. After a short descent you will put on your skins for the climb to Arpelistock. The descent to the Gelten Hut will take you through the picturesque Furggetäli.

Day 2: Summit ski tour to Wildhorn 3248m

The route on the second day takes you up to Col du Brotsé and on to the summit of the Wildhorn. You will enjoy views across to the Valais Alps and then descend along glaciers to the cosy Wildhorn Hut.

Day 3: Traverse of Schnidehorn 2937m

In the morning you will head up to Schnidejoch and on to the Schnidehorn, the smaller neighbour of the Wildhorn. You will briefly ski down into the Canton of Valais, towards the Rawilpass. There you will cross back into the Canton of Bern and after a leisurely 1 hour hike up, you will reach the Wildstrubel Hut.

Day 4: The «not so wild» Wildstrubel… 3244m

This day begins with a very gentle uphill as you cross the large glacier plane called “Plaine Morte”. After this nice warm up, you will start climbing to your summit aim for the day, the Wildstrubel. After enjoying the panorama at the top, you will ski down the wide slopes to your accommodation for the evening, the Lämmeren Hut.

Day 5: Traverse of Rote Totz 2848 m to Kandersteg

On the final day an easy ascent and leisurely pace will take you to the final summit of the week, the Rote Totz. The descent will take you past the small lake of Tälliseeli, on to Walliswand, and into the Üschenen valley. After 1200m of downhill, you will arrive at the Sunnbüel cable car station, and you will begin your journey home from Kandersteg.
