Saas Fee 4000m Peaks

Altitude: 4000m | Switzerland | Intermediate level | 6 Mountain Days | Guide ratio 1:3

The wonderful village of Saas Fee is perfectly situated amongst some great 4000m peaks making it an ideal base for a high Alpine mountaineering week.

We will climb no fewer than four Alpine 4000m peaks in the Saas Fee 4000m Peaks week. This is weather dependant of course, and may include the Strahlhorn 4190m, Allallinhorn 4027m, Weissmies 4023m and the classic Lagginhorn 4010m. All combine to give superb views across to Mont Blanc, the Monta Rosa and the Bernese Oberland – the home of the Eiger and Jungfrau. We aim to stay high in the Alpine huts throughout the course. Suitable for novice Alpinists with some winter walking experience.

Our other Swiss 4000m Courses include Zermatt, Bernese Oberland and Peaks of Zermatt.

Mont Blanc Extension

This 4 day extension to the highest peak in Western Europe may be added on to any of our Alpine Introductory or Zermatt or Saas Fee 4000m Peaks courses. These previous courses are essential to gain the acclimatisation required to climb Mt Blanc. To add this extension go to the Dates and Prices Tab and select the extension.

Previous Experience & Fitness

You should have a good level of fitness as Alpine Mountaineering can be very tiring. Normally we would expect you to be able to enjoy consecutive 7-8 hours days in the British mountains with a medium pack. You should also have previous experience with crampons and ice axe and a basic understanding of glacial travel and crevasse rescue. Our Alpine Intro courses provide sufficient training to meet this prerequisite.   Please note this is a suggested itinerary and the actual programme may change as a result of weather, conditions on the mountain, availability of mountain huts and individual levels of fitness. If due to any of these reasons a summit attempt is not possible then we usually switch are attentions to the Gran Paradiso or another similar objective. If any extra costs for accommodation, transport or food are incurred beyond the suggested itinerary then you will need to pay these directly.

Saturday: Arrive in Chamonix and check into your hotel. Evening meeting with your Guide. (H, B)
Sunday: Go up to Cosmiques (3613m) or Gouter Hut using a variety of cable cars and trains
Monday: Ascent of Mont Blanc (4810m) and return to the hut or valley hotel
Tuesday: Reserve summit day or Cosmiques Arête etc
Wednesday: Breakfast and departure
