The Allalin

My first four-thousander

The majestic Allalin (4027 m.a.s.l.) is the pride of the inhabitants of Saas. The mountain is visible from almost the entire Saas Valley and is illuminated at night during the high season.

Have you ever dreamed of standing on a four-thousand-metre peak?

The Allalinhorn makes it possible! The summit (4027 m.a.s.l.) is considered one of the most impressive mountains in the Saas Valley and is absolutely suitable for budding summiters. With the company of a mountain guide and in good weather you can climb the Allalinhorn relatively "easily" with a little stamina and good surefootedness. It remains a 4000m peak - caution and respect is therefore still the highest command on the mountain.

 

Are you ready for the Allalinhorn?

✔️ Are you 16 or older?

✔️ Are you sure-footed?

✔️ 4 hours of high alpine hiking does not bother you?

✔️ You respect the mountain?

If you could answer everything with YES, this is what you can expect:

How does the tour go down?

The day before

Already the day before the ascent, contact the mountain guides: www.saasfeeguides.com

They would like to get to know you briefly before the tour to discuss the most important things with you. 

The day of the ascent

At 8:00 a.m. you arrive at the "Alpin Express"  station. There you can exchange your "MetroAlpin" voucher for a mountain cable car ticket.

At 8:15 a.m. the mountain guides will join you at the latest.

At 8:45 a.m. you reach the Mittelallalin station (3457 m.a.s.l.) with the MetroAlpin, the world's highest funicular.

And then it's off to the ascent 💪

The ascent

The ascent is via the Feejoch route (3807 m above sea level). You will cross snowfields, glaciers and short stretches of rock. Within about two hours you reach the majestic Allalinhorn together with a mountain guide. By the way, you don't have to climb, the path leads from the world's highest revolving restaurant to the 500-metre-higher summit via an easily accessible path and has only one ladder you have to conquer.

On the summit

Enjoy the fantastic view! You have done a great job! Take pictures! Let yourself be celebrated! Be proud of yourself!

The descent

You must also allow at least two hours for the descent. However, you will be able to relax and enjoy yourself after the mountain tour. In the world's highest revolving restaurant, you can enjoy Swiss and Valaisian specialities while enjoying a 360° view of the surrounding mountains. A hunter's tea on the deckchairs in front of the revolving restaurant is also highly recommended.

Overnight stay in the Saas Valley

Finish off your mountain experience with an overnight stay in the glacier village Saas-Fee. The Saas Valley offers more than 500 overnight accommodation possibilities. Whether you want to stay in a mountain hut or in a luxurious 5-star hotel with an all-round wellness package, there is something for everyone.

"I have always admired the Allalin from the village. The ascent of the mountain and the subsequent rewarding views of the surrounding giants such as the Matterhorn and the Mont Blanc have given me a new perspective on our mountain world that I will not soon forget.
