An introduction to the popular and exciting sport of Ice Climbing. No experience needed but good hiking fitness is essential. Leave in the afternoon to catch the gondola to Oeschinensee and hike up to the Fründenhütte (2562 m) - enjoying the awesome scenery and arriving for dinner. On the second day you are introduced to the world of glaciers and can experiment with ice climbing on the glacial ice, under the guidance of KISC guides and a Qualified Swiss Mountain Guide. Return to KISC late in the afternoon.
Price includes half board overnight in the Fründenhütte, return ticket for the Oeschinen Gondola, a KISC guide for the duration of the trip and a Qualified Swiss Mountain Guide whilst on the glacier.
Snow and Ice trips are only able to leave KISC on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 5th – August 18th 2016. Please contact us for availability outside of these dates as it may still be possible.
One of the main themes of our Programme the environment is important to all Scouts. We have Guided and Self-Guided Programme as well as the Eco Adventure Room and environmental information around the Centre and Campsite.
