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, Jul, Aug, Sep




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!
