Description

I will guide you for 7 unforgettable days across the world famous Monte Rosa, Italy, where we will mountaineer amongst some of the most astoundingly beautiful alpine landscapes possible, including glistening glaciers and vast valleys, all in a fun, safe and not-technically demanding way – perfect for beginners!

Monte Rosa is the second highest mountain in Italy, and also sprawls in to Switzerland. It’s raw natural beauty of snow-capped peaks and sweeping valleys and vistas make it a picture-perfect postcard of what you imagine the Alps to be.

We meet on the first day at 5pm in Chamonix/Argentiere, where all the safety information and gear will be dispensed before we spend the night in a hotel.

We set off the next morning via the Grands Montets lift in order to reach the mesmerizing Grands Montets glacier, where we spend a fun afternoon completing a snow and ice course, before a nice 2.5 hour descent to the Argentiere hut, our accommodation for the night.

Over the subsequent four days we will scale some of the most impressive and exciting peaks in the Alps, including Schwarzhorn, Vincent-Pyramide and Punta Girodani, and we will consistently smash through the 4000m high barrier, enabling you to breathe in the fresh, cold and crisp mountain air high up above Europe.

We are able to replenish our energy each night in our hut accommodation located on the mountains, and we even get to stop by the world-famous Margherita Hut, the highest mountain hut in the Alps!

Our final day is spent climbing one last 4000m summit, before our finishing descent and journey back to Chamonix, weary and satisfied at a week well-spent!

Climbing 7 summits on Monte Rosa is the most thrilling way to spend a week – book now to feel the rush!

For those that want to progress quicker, I also offer a 1-week intensive course of Mountaineering in Chamonix, here!

For anyone who would like even more time, I offer an “Alpine Semester” 12-day mountaineering course in the Austrian Alps, here!
