More Info

A mountain climbing journey up the Matterhorn is a legendary and unforgettable experience. It poses significant difficulties that require a high level of fitness and experience. Groups often include just one climber for a personal experience and the best chance of a successful summit. The Normal Route up the Hornli Ridge is considered the easiest and most popular ascent, including a stay at the Hornli Hut (3,266m). The mountain huts can be crowded during the summer, so reserving a place in advance is a must.
