Val d'Anniviers Circuit - Switzerland - 6 Days

This amazing ski tour takes you to remote places and is a change from the normal classic itineraries. Similar to our 7 day Imperial Crown Tour, the difference being the return to Zinal on Day 6.

Surrounded by stunning mountains like the Weisshorn, Zinalrothorn and Dent Blanche you will skin and ski big and remote glaciers, climbing some interesting mountains, in particular the Bishorn 4,153 meters, one of the few peaks over 4,000 meters in the Alps easily accessible with skis.

The first part is not technical and gives you the opportunity to train and get confident with the area and the altitude; the second part is more difficult with bigger verticals, some technical climbing and skiing sections along impressive glaciers.

Arriving at the Col Durand the view of the Matterhorn North face will leave you breathless!
