Our first two expeditions in Switzerland took place in July 2017, 2018 and 2019. We explored Findelengletscher, above the village Zermatt, and its surroundings with 9 teenage girls.
Due to COVID-19 the 2020 expeditions were cancelled and an alternative short program takes place in beginning of August.

From 2017 to 2020 Girls on Ice Switzerland is funded through a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNFS) AGORA grant.
