Summary

Experience unparalleled freeride terrain at two of Switzerland’s classic resorts, Engelberg and Andermatt, only an hour’s drive apart.

Located in the heart of the Swiss Alps, Engelberg and Andermatt are quaint and unassuming resorts with traditional and pretty, cobbled villages. Unknown to many, both resorts are renowned in the freeski community for their challenging and expert descents. To make the most of the terrain, spend a day with an experienced mountain guide in each resort (powder experience is a must).

This trip is perfect for advanced skiers looking to make the most of the off-piste terrain as this is where the resorts come into their own, but it can also be enjoyed as a twin-centre ski holiday for all abilities. Skip the guiding and stick to the pistes, which are plentiful, varied and fun for all abilities, and enjoy the two traditional Swiss villages.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Suggested Itinerary

Our Engelberg and Andermatt Freeride Ski Safari is ideally enjoyed over a seven night period, with three to four nights in each resort. This allows for six days on the snow, two of them with a guide. The resorts can be enjoyed in either order.

Engelberg

Arrive in Zurich or Basel and travel to Engelberg by train.

Spend three days skiing Engelberg, one of which will be with an experienced mountain guide. Engelberg is an off-piste mecca with a long season, thanks to the Titlis glacier, and has one of the biggest vertical drops in the Alps. It's known in the ski world for its classic Laub descent, but there are many routes to explore. Off mountain, the après is another draw here, our favourite being the Yucatan Bar.

Check out early on day four and catch a one hour transfer across to Andermatt.

Andermatt

Ski Andermatt for three days, one of which will be with an experienced mountain guide. The towering Gemsstock mountain is where to head for the epic terrain that it is known for. The 3,000m peak is speedily accessed by cable car from the edge of the resort and the descents are fantastic. Further access to untouched areas is possible with ski touring.

Travel back to Zurich by train.
