Urner Haute Route - Realp to Engelberg - 5 days

Enjoy one of the finest and steepest haute routes in Switzerland, the Urner Haute route is for skiers!  There are many options for interesting descents, we search for the hidden treasures. With smaller group size we have the freedom to explore. Most days start with a long climb up south slopes, and finish with a rewarding descent down steep north faces. Long glacier traverses are notably absent from the Urner Haute Route.

 

Route:

- day 1 -

Starting in Realp (1538m), we sort out our equipment and make a leisurely climb up to Chli Bielenhorn (2940m),  then a relaxed descent to  Albertheimhütte (2543m).

 

- day 2 -

We start the day with a short descent, before climbing the Lochberg (3074m) A challenging ascent on skis then with crampons and ice axe. A beutifull descent to the Göscheneralp brings us to the Gasthause Göscheneralp (1580m) for a relaxed evening and excellent meals.

 

- day 3 -

After a good coffee we make an early start and ascend to the Schinstock (3161m) From Schinstock we enjoy a beutifull descent to Voralphutte (2126m) The east facing slopes often hold the best snow of the tour!

 

- day 4 -

A long glacier ascent brings us to the Sustenhorn (3503m), the highpoint of the tour. The classic Steingletscher descent winds between crevasses and seracs before reaching the Steingetscher hotel (1865m)

 

- day 5 -

From Steingletscher we ascend up over the Fünffingerstöck (2993m) and conditions permitting a steep descent brings us to the Wenden Glacier. One last short skin brings us to Grassen Biwak (2647m), followed by a beautiful descent under the imposing walls of the Titlis to the Engelberg valley.
