We offered seven expeditions in Switzerland between 2017 and 2021. Each time, 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 on Glacier de la Plaine Morte.
We also offer school workshops, have a look here.

From 2017 to 2021 Girls on Ice Switzerland was mainly funded through a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNFS) AGORA grant.
