Backcountry Snowshoeing Private Tour

This incredible snowshoe tour is for the physically fit hikers only. 

The route will start and finish at the Julier Pass, an area where you can truly feel you're in the middle of the large mountains of the Swiss Alps. 

You'll be guided by me, an International Mountain Leader & Everest climber. I often tour on the Julier Pass on both snowshoes and skis, and it's my favourite place in Engadine. 

Please note, safety is first. This tour will only start in favourable snow conditions and low risk of avalanche in the area. Required gear: avalanche transceiver, shovel and a probe (can be easily rented). This equipment we use for learning opportunities. There is no risk of slipping and falling during this tour.

Highlights of the tour

  • 360 degree mountain views around us 
  • Full day tour 
  • true wilderness feeling
  • a beautiful winter hike with a great sense of achievement

Snowshoe & poles included. Please rent or bring your own avalanche transceiver, shovel and a probe.

Terms & conditions:


Start: your hotel or the Julier Pass (will be finalised which car park the night before).

It's a full day tour, and the earlier we start the safer are the snow conditions. We will enter the Agnel Valley, named after Piz d'Agnel (3,204m). We follow the ski touring paths until it splits deep in the valley. You will be rewarded with breathtaking views of giant snowy mountains. 

Plenty of amazing photo opportunities. Please bring enough food and warm drinks and water for an 8h hike. 

The Julier Pass

The mountain pass, reaching 2,284m is above Silvaplana in Engadin, Switzerland. Very close to St. Moritz and easily accessible by car and bus. 

The pass been used since Roman times and remains of a Roman temple can be found. The Julier Pass Route leads from Chur through deep Alpine valleys, over the Julier Pass and on to St. Moritz. It is open all year around. 

The Julier Pass is well known for ski and snowshoe touring in the winter and it’s popular because it offers a large variety of routes. Venturing higher on one of the mountains such as Piz Surgonda (3,196 m) and Piz Lagrev (3,165 m), reveal glorious views of the Engadin valley.
