Of all of the 4000 metre peaks in the Pennine Alps, Breithorn (4,164m) is the easiest to climb. That is why on this trip, you will be able to reach the summit and descent back down in a single day!

Climbing Breithorn is one of those rare instances where you actually get more than you give. The views you will receive from the summit are remarkable. There is so much to see, including, the Matterhorn (4,478m), Monte Rosa (4,634m), the Gendarm (4,106m), the Roccia Nera (4,075m), among several more peaks and glaciers. You will also be able to see Zermatt in Valais, Swizerland and St-Jacques in the Aosta Valley of Italy.

We will meet in Cervinia to start the trip. From there we will take the lift to the Plateau Rosa (3,480m). After that, we will climb Breithorn to its summit, where you will get to enjoy the breathtaking views, before we descend along the same route we ascended.

While the climb is easy, that does not mean caution should not still be taken, as there can be some difficult spots near cornices, or as a result of possible bad weather. And because of that, I will see to it that you are properly guided so you can reach the magnificent summit safely.

Breithorn is the kind of peak that makes you want to climb other, larger, more difficult peaks. Thus making it the kind of peak that can start a climbing journey that could last a lifetime. And it would be my pleasure to help you start that journey. Send me a message if you are interested.

I also offer additional single day climbs in the Alps. You can join me on this climb of Le Petit Mont Blanc, or this climb of the Aiguille de Toula.
