Switzerland: Mountain Climbing
A summer and winter sports paradise
Switzerland is the land of mountains, and of course they are there to be climbed. There are companies, such as the Swiss Alpine Guides who will take you out on graded multi-pitched mountain climbing routes in the Bernese Oberland from May to October.
A mountain climbing trip for two people with all technical equipment provided and a professional local mountain guide will cost around CHF 300 a person. More serious climbs – such as climbing Mont Blanc, the highest spot in Europe – are available as 7-day climbs and will set you back around 1229 euros. Or you could choose to scale the Matterhorn, Europe’s most recognisable peak, while in Switzerland.
Whatever you choose, your fitness levels and climbing skills are important, so discuss these with the guides before committing yourself, but if you complete these climbs while on holiday in Switzerland you’ll feel on top of the world!
