Description

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

And if you’d like to check out some of my other programs, please take a look at my 7-day Chamonix mountaineering course or my Mount Aneto ascent .
