This safari covers great touring terrain and beautiful descents for the most part rarely used by others. It is a great introduction to touring with the added benefit of comfortable hotel accommodation in the evenings.
After a warm up day in Chamonix we transfer to the famous resort of Verbier in Switzerland, the safari continues linking little known ski areas above the Rhone valley ending up at the remote Monastery in the Simplon pass. There is a section of ski touring each day usually with no more than a couple of hours in ascent. We use the uplift in each village we stay in to access an off piste descent or to gain height before the touring begins.
A dedicated minibus transfers our luggage and occasionally the group where required during the trip. Each night is spent in a comfortable hotel eating local foods and sampling the local wines.
We offer a full six day programme or shorter trips can be organised if you are pressed for time.
This week is an exciting and sometimes challenging journey through the Swiss Valais, generally skiing off piste with an element of ski touring each day.

"Thanks for a great week and for organizing it so well. Because of you and Ric everything went like clockwork. A credit to your professionalism… so what's next?"
"Doing the Haute Route has been an ambition of mine since 1984. It has taken a long time to achieve and something that would not have been possible without yourself and particularly your good choice of guides"
"Many thanks for everything - it was a real pleasure to have you guide us. I am glad you enjoyed it, and the champagne too. I will unreservedly recommend you to anybody looking for a guide, especially when good humour, tolerance, and card skills are required. I hope our paths cross again. Bon chance"
