Are you ready for a spectacular charity event – for a CHALLENGE – not only with the goal to collect donations, but also to become the best possible version of yourself?


It is March 02nd, 2019. 100 participants hike, led by “Iceman” Wim Hof, 90 minutes at about 2000 meters above sea level in the snow, battling freezing temperatures in the Swiss Alps. The catch: except their hiking boots, they wear only short, very thin sportswear. Instead of a catching a cold, all participants finish this CHALLENGE with a strengthened immune system and a new awareness of life; while all of this happens for a good cause: they save lives.

The SIC for visitors


Would you prefer to watch the CHALLENGE from a distance in the first year, before becoming a participant yourself? We welcome you as a visitor in this case! Cheer for our participants during their hike in LAAX from Crap Sin Gion to Crap Masgen and back and find out about interesting methods that can lead to a better wellbeing. For those who would like to know exactly how our participants experienced the CHALLENGE, there is a chance to do so during the evening gala dinner. Of course, the proceeds from ticket sales also flow 100% into the donation pool.

There are countless charitable projects that deserve to be supported. However, with the donations collected through the SWISS ICE CHALLENGE, two great projects are to be supported: we will walk against depression and for self-leadership among young people. How does this match? Find out about all the details and background information regarding the projects here.
