7-day mountaineering tour in Monte Rosa

Seize the chance to climb the crests of the Swiss Alps, in Monte Rosa, on this 7-day trip with Jon, an IFMGA certified guide. It is as amazing as it sounds!




7 Days


Jun - Sep






Credit Card, Wire Transfer and more!


The Monte Rosa massif is a snowbound paradise that overlooks both Switzerland and Italy.

Due to the variety of breathtaking landscapes, the activity that has become indisputably the most popular is mountaineering over Monte Rosa many crests.

My proposal for this 7-day tour is to cover all the Monte Rosa craggy peaks on different days. Castor (4226 m), Dufourspitze (4634 m), Lyskamm (4527 m), Punta Gnifetti (4553 m) and Zumsteinspitze (4653 m) are some of the peaks we’ll traverse.

The highlights of our itinerary will be reaching the summit of Breithorn (4165 m) at the beginning of our adventure and staying at the highest mountain hut in Europe, in Punta Gnifetti.

It is required that you have a good fitness level for this trip, due to its intensity.

You’ll find an itinerary for this trip below this description for further details. This is a general proposal. Feel free to suggest any changes to this program!

If you have a courageous nature and a love for the outdoors, join me on this 7-day mountaineering tour in Monte Rosa. Send your request to book the trip.

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
