Sitting just south of the Swiss border, Cervinia is the ideal base for an incredible mountain climbing experience. While most climbers opt to head here in order to tackle the Matterhorn or Monte Rosa, there are loads of other climbing options available. As a slight twist on the traditional ascent of the Matterhorn, some guides choose to warm up on Dentes de Herens. The views from this minor peak are spectacular and it’s a great way to spend a week of mountain climbing. Heading up to Testa Grigia, Punta Maria Christa and the Furgghorn are several other excellent options, all of which are challenging, scenic and less crowded than the aforementioned options
