Breithorn, Pennine Alps, Guided Ascent

Elis was very concerned about our safety and he did it very good. He explained how crevasses are formed and how to discover them. He had a really strong pace going up but we keep up with him the whole time. His English was good and we had a lot of fun! With him you feel confident to climb any mountain.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to climb Matterhorn - I was instead given a summit of Briethorn and Riffelhorn. Which, when purchased separately are nearly $1000 less. Overall, pretty disappointed with the experience. Best, Calvin

Breithorn, Pennine Alps, Guided Ascent

We did our first 4000m peak with Gigio from Peak Hunters and it was a (literally) breathtaking experience! To everyone who wants to start their adventure with high altitude- this is a great place to start. Keep in mind that is still challenging to your body due to the altitude. I wish we did more acclimatisation. Overall it was perfectly organised and adjusted to us. They kept us safe, informed and well prepared. Thank you so much and look forward to more adventures! ps. Explore share gives good overview of what is possible but at points it was a bit confusing weather I already booked and who am I talking to. I guess just point to improve I the interface on the platform.

Matterhorn 2-day ascent

Tobias was an absolutely fantastic guide for our adventure on the Matterhorn (his 85th ascent!), and could not recommend him more highly as a guide and person. We required a second guide for the actual matterhorn climb as there was two of us - instead of Tobias telling us to find someone, he fully arranged another guide that he knew and trusted for the trip up, which allowed us to focus solely on our climbing and training for the Matterhorn ascent. When a gear breakdown affected our training climb on the Breithorn half traverse, Tobias adapted the training and route to give us a bit more time and coaching with the skills needed to successfully summit the Horn. He kept expectations very realistic, and pushed us as positively and confidently as possible. As a result, we made great time to the Matterhorn summit and back. He was also in constant communication in the months leading up to the climb, and constantly provided helpful tips and advice. Even met us for a drink when we arrived in Zermatt to introduce ourselves and gain some familiarity before the climbing began! The climb was a trip of a lifetime, and would not have been possible without Tobias. I will be booking with him again for my next trip to climb in the alps.

Breithorn, Pennine Alps, Guided Ascent

Rolando is an amazing athlete. Professional Guide. He is very compassionate. Right from the start till the end he took care of me and made me enjoy the climb. While keeping an eye on the clock he still took time to explain the landscape and key areas around. It was a great learning experience. I would surely love to get more knowledge and experience more climbs at Alps with Rolando. All the best for him.

Matterhorn 2-day ascent

Tobias is an amazing guide. He guided me for the Riffelhorn and a Hornli Ridge 2 day Matterhorn climb. He knew the route well and made sure we were safe the whole time. He also shifted the days because the weather was bad for the original booked days. Best guide in Zermatt, I will definitely try to book him for all future trips in this region.

Matterhorn 2-day ascent

The Matterhorn trip was absolutely awesome. Tobias is an EXCELLENT GUIDE. I would absolutely recommand him. Answered all my questions prior to my trip in Zermatt, gave me a lot of tricks and advice the day before and during the trip. He was very good with me and also very flexible for the ascent date. Also, I was very pleased with my experience with explore-share. It was easy, straight forward and perfect. The customer service was also real good. Was exactly (and even more!) what I needed!

Roland was a great guide. Incredibly fit, experienced and also friendly. He was conservative at start, watched my ability and then adapted the hike to be exactly the challenge I needed. It was a lot of fun, I did 2 additional peaks and I always felt very safe. Looking forward to more trips with him

Breithorn ascent from Cervinia, Italy - All Inclusive

I have only amazing things to say about Elis and Silvia/Peak Hunters. From the moment I made an online enquiry they have been nothing but incredible and supportive to help me achieve my goal of reaching the summit of the Breithorn. Silvia spent time on the phone to me talking about everything from the best day to climb to accommodation and how to get to Cirvinia. As I am backpacking I had every little of the required equipment ant they went out of their way to source clothes items that couldn’t be rented, and met with me the day before the climb to go to the shops and to check my gear. Elis then took over for the climb and was incredible also; experienced and knowledgeable it was easy to be in his company and feel safe in his hands. He’s happy to talk you through the technical stuff as little or as much as you want. The climb was incredible and Elis set a steady and manageable pace that meant, despite the huge inclines along the way, it was achievable. Thanks for everything both, I’m very glad I chose to climb the Breithorn from the Italian side and got to undertake this climb with you. 12/05/2018

Monte Rosa guided climbing traverse

During the summer 2016, Andrea guided us on Punta Castore in the Monte Rosa range from where we could enjoy breathtaking views on Mont Blanc, Matterhorn and Gran Paradiso. This adventure allowed us to discover the beautiful region of the Aosta Valley but also to share an amazing human adventure with a mountain guide who very well transmit his passion, the typical local kindness and the mountain values. We already booked Andrea for some future adventures !

Monte Rosa guided climbing traverse

Andrea guided a bunch of four of us during three days on the Monte Rosa massif during which we made it to the ridge of the Breithorn and the top of the Castor, both 4000+. All went fine and we had a fantastic experience, turning crevasses and seracs and riding the ridges. Andrea is still quite young but calm and mature in his discernment. He inspires confidence, which is the most important guide quality to me. Furthermore he's a really good companion. I'd definitely recommend him.

We had an incredible time with Andrea on Mont Rosa, he knows the mountain by hearth and has a wealth of experiences. It was incredibly fun with the right amount of challenge to be with him on the mountain. Would certainly recommend him and do it again.

Monte Rosa guided climbing traverse

Climbing the Castore and the Liskamm'Nose with Andrea has been a fantastic experience. Andrea is a skillful, friendly and knowledgeable guide. In addition to the spectacular traverse he offered us, he brought us to two very nice refuges (Mezzalama and Quintino Sella) where we spent a great time all together too. The traverse was full of speechless views, with a few tricky parts (sharp ridges, steep slopes, crevasses to avoid,...). I'm grateful to Andrea for having offered us the opportunity to achieve this challenge. I strongly recommend mountaineers to be guided by him.

Andrea knows how to share his passion! He is a great guide, dynamic and very professional. He guided us to Castor Peak and Liskamm's Nose through a three days expedition. The landscapes and views up there are breathtaking.

More info about Mountain Climbing in Cervinia:

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
