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.
