This 8-day Mount Cervino hiking tour is a great way to walk around the most iconic mountain in the Alps, without the need of alpine technical knowledge!
Mount Cervino (4478 m), or Matterhorn (by its german name), is the most renown mountains in the Alps. Due to its pyramidal shaped peak it is visited by thousands of tourists every year. And it's, beyond any doubt, one of the most beautiful places to walk around in Europe. Indeed it's surrounded by lots of 4000 m peaks, which make this tour an amazing experience.
And, although it looks like a rough mountain to hike, during summer there is no technical difficulty to walk around it. Instead, this Mount Cervino hiking tour goes through great distances and different altitudes in a simple way.
Moreover we'll cross two beautiful glaciers along the path. Plus we'll make lots of hikes to different peaks, where we'll see the great Cervino from different angles.
So please contact me to make this 8-day Mount Cervino hiking tour happen. And please specify any requests that you may have, so I can make the proper arrangements in advance

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
