Scout Climbing in crevasse

Activity overview

An accessible introduction to glacier travel.

Unfortunately, we will not be offering this activity during Summer 2022. Due to external factors, we are no longer able to run this at the Frundenhütte. As KISC rebuilds following the Covid-19 pandemic, it has not been possible to launch this in time for 2022. As an alternative, you can find the Blüemlisalp Glacier Tour as a great replacement activity to get up onto the Glacier with a Mountain Guide, or consider the Three Valleys Hike as a great overnight option. We apologise for any disappointment this might cause and thank you for your understanding.
