This 4-day trip is a unique opportunity to conquer Matterhorn and enjoy the great views that Zermatt has to offer.

This perfectly-shaped pyramidal peak lies in the Monte Rosa area of the Alps and is among the most famous Swiss attractions. Thousands of mountaineers peregrinate to Zermatt every year in the hopes of making it to this giant’s coveted summit.

The mountain is 4,477.5 meters high and has really steep faces. Its ascent is famously challenging: an excellent physical condition and experience in PD-AD grade climbs are essential.

This 4-day program includes two acclimatization climbs before the ascent. During these climbs, you will improve your mountaineering skills on complex terrain as you get ready for our ultimate goal.

This private trip is available from July to September, although August is the best month to climb Mattehorn. If you are a group of several people, I can invite other certified guides to join us. And don’t hesitate to let me know if you’d like to take the Italian route to the summit, as I offer that as well.

Join me on this fantastic adventure to the top of one of the world’s most famous mountains! I’ll be glad to guide you in your attempt to conquer Matterhorn. Get ready for a truly challenging climb! Request to book this trip.

What people are saying about Denis



We loved our experience at Mt Elbrus with our Guide Denis. He was an awesome Guide very knowledgable and skilled. We would use him again. We were greatful for his translation as English was not spoken by many! Mt Elbrus was an amazing place. All lift passes and accommodation excellent. Food was really good. Training days on the mountain was a wonderful experience and my partner made it to the summit with Denis. Sadly I did not but will plan another trip to attempt it myself. I would recommend Denis to anyone wanting to climb Mt Elbrus. Great guy and Guide! Thank you for putting us in touch with him and helping arrange a well organised trip. Very happy customer experience all round!
