Conquer the Breithorn of the Pennine Alps from Cervinia along the border between Italy and Switzerland with aspirant GAI guide Giovanni.
Conquer the accessible alpine summit of Breithorn in the Pennine Alps.
Capture the crisp aline beauty of the rugged snow-capped mountains.
Take advantage of having a guide accompanying you in the Alps.
Towering among the peaks along the Pennine Alps mountain range is the great Breithorn mountain spread along the border between Italy and Switzerland.
Standing at 4,164 meters above sea level, Breithorn is the most accessible 4,000-meter peak in the entire Alps.
Our springboard into the mountains is from the alpine resort town of Cervinia, resting in the Aosta Valley, in the northwest of Italy.
The town lies at 2,006 meters above sea level, at the foot of the iconic Matterhorn. Here huge glaciated peaks dominate the skyline.
Alternatively, we can spring into the mountains from the Swiss side from the town of Zermatt, which lies to the north of Plateau Rosa.
We’ll first ascent to the Plateau Rosa glacier, which mostly falls within Swiss borders. Its upper chunks spill into Italy.
Thick snow blankets the rugged alpine slopes as we reach higher and higher. From Plateau Rosa to the summit of Breithorn, the climb takes approximately 3 hours.
The mountain summit is accompanied by a collection of smaller peaks, consisting of Central Breithorn (4,159 meters), Eastern Breithorn (4,139 meters), Gendarm (4,106 meters) and Roccia Nera (4,075 meters).
The first recorded ascent of Breithorn dates all the way back to 1813.

Raised in the Piedmont mountains, in parallel to the degree in physical education, I conclude the path to become an Alpine Guide, an activity that I start full time and 360 degrees around the Alps.
My favorite activities are ski mountaineering, high mountain and rock climbing.
