ABOUT US

 

“High altitude mountaineering reinvented”

HERE TO SUCCEED
20 years of expedition experience and the highest innovations in research, development and technology make Furtenbach the most successful operators on Everest and one of the most innovative adventure operators in the world. Our success rate on Everest of 100% over several years is unmatched worldwide.

EMPOWERED BY SCIENCE
What makes us more successful than all other expeditions is our conviction that we can only be successful if we always rely on the latest findings from science, medicine and technology. Only this way could we develop innovations such as the unique hypoxia system, improved, 100% redundant oxygen systems with a flow of 8L/Min, wearable technology for monitoring vital data and the latest heating and insulation technologies that enable us to increase the safety, performance and success on the mountain.

HIGHEST STANDARDS
With our ambition to make the world’s greatest adventures and highest peaks safer, we have not only revolutionized mountaineering, but have also defined new standards: more safety, better preparation, better equipment, better altitude tactics, and better acclimatization. For the highest chances of success.

PREMIUM ADVENTURES
In addition to Everest, Furtenbach offers further premium expeditions to the highest peaks on earth. From K2 over Nanga Parbat to the Eiger North Face.
Exclusive freeride and heliski tours complete our premium offer of adventure trips.
For Furtenbach, premium means above all more safety, more oxygen, more sherpas, more equipment and more medical care to make the expeditions and adventure trips safer and more successful.

SUSTAINABILITY
Of course, in addition to success and safety, it is also very important to us that our travels are as responsible as possible. For us, this includes leaving the mountains and camps 100% rubbish-free, respecting cultures and population, always working with local teams, insuring them and paying them fairly. This is responsible tourism for us.
