The Swiss Alpine Club SAC brings together people interested in the mountains – regardless of their age, gender, religion, language or background.
Founded in 1863, the SAC has been a dynamic force in developing the Alpine region and climbing. Based on this tradition, the organisation is an advocate of responsible mountain sports and extensive access to mountain areas.
