Saas Fee 4000m Peaks

The Saas region has the greatest concentration of 4000m peaks in the Alps and is one of the very best centres for classic mountaineering. There are no less than eighteen 4000m peaks surrounding the area. Most of the peaks can be ascended without encountering great technical difficulty, however good fitness and some experience of using crampons and an ice axe are necessary. This experience can be gained on one of our introductory alpine courses.

Alphubel 4206m, Weissmies 4023m, Lagginhorn 4010m, Strallhorn 4190m, Allalinhorn 4027m.
