Description

If you’re searching for your first 4,000-meter climb, then this trip provides the perfect opportunity to conquer one of the greatest and scenic summits in the Alps.

Breithorn (meaning broad horn) is a peak in the Pennines that stands at the border between Switzerland and Italy. The summit offers incredible views and an exhilarating ascent. Stretching to 4,165 meters, the snow-capped and glacial route is one of the most climbed of the Alps. It is a popular mountain for climbers who wish to go on their first 4,000-meter climb.

Breithorn stands close to the famous mountaineering town of Zermatt. The climb is not too steep and doesn’t require any previous knowledge if you go with a certified guide. Despite the technical ease, this 4,000-meter peak should not be underestimated. The alpine climate, altitude, and crevasses all present challenges on the mountain. In addition, potential participants are required to have a good level of fitness and stamina in order to make the climb both fun and safe.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on this 1-day climbing adventure in the Swiss Alps and conquer your first 4,000-meter peak! I look forward to guiding you!
