Description

This 7-day Monte Rosa mountaineering summer program will take your breath away while you enjoy an amazing scenery!

I've design this program for you to go through all of Monte Rosa massif summits. Indeed, what I offer is a unique route that will go through this massif ridge connecting its peaks. So this program will take us above 4000 m for quite a bit of time. This means you'll need to be in good shape and ready for some effort.

This ridge route through Monte Rosa massif has become very popular because of its great diversity of sceneries and views. During the program that I've designed we'll go through all of these summits:

  • Breithorn 4165 m.

  • Castor 4226 m. 

  • Lyskamm 4527 m.

  • Gnifetti 4554 m.

  • Zumsteinspitze 4563 m.

  • Dufour 4634 m.

 

But I'm also open to change the program if you wish too. Remember that the main goal is for you to live an unforgettable experience.

So please let me know if you’re interested in this 7-day Monte Rosa mountaineering summer program. And please specify all your requests so I can make the proper arrangements!

And if you’d like to check out some of my other programs, please take a look at my 7-day Chamonix mountaineering course or my 7-day Chamonix-Zermatt summer hiking tour.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
