This course delivers your first proper insight into the fascinating world of alpine tours.
On the light tour scheduled for day one, you will learn how to use crampons, ropes and ice axe, plus how to act in a rope team crossing firn fields and glaciers. On day two, once acquainted with the glacier climbing gear, you tackle your first four-thousand-meter peak: the Breithorn (4,164 meters).
