Highlights

 
     

    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.

    Or if you prefer to take a look at another program, I recommend you to check on the 7-day Valais ski touring trip to Zermatt.
