  • Do some training in the Cogne Valley.
  • Visit either the Carrel Hut or the Orionde Hut.


Climbing the Matterhorn (4,478m) is a dream come true for any enthusiastic mountaineer. And, on this 6-day adventure, you will get to climb to the summit of this legendary peak.

Along with the climb of the Matterhorn, there will also be plenty of instruction and technical and physical training throughout the trip.

Our trip will begin with cliff training on a small rocky ridge in the Cogne valley. This training will help prepare you for the climb to come.

On the second day of the trip we will visit the Pousset Point by the East Ridge in the Cogne Valley, where we will do further training.

For day 3, we will visit the Giant’s Tooth. Once there, we will climb to approximately 4,000 meters on the incredible Mont Blanc Massif. This will help you with the necessary acclimatization.

The fourth day of the trip will be a much needed rest day. On day 5, we will climb to either the Carrel Hut or the Orionde Hut. And finally, on the sixth day of the trip, we will make our way to the summit of the Matterhorn, where you can enjoy some truly spectacular views of the surrounding peaks, before we make our way back down.

Participants on this trip should be experienced climbers in extremely good physical condition.

Climbing to the summit of the Matterhorn is an experience you will never forget. To join me on this amazing 6-day expedition, all you have to do is send a request.

Would you like to climb the various 4,000 meter plus peaks in the Monte Rosa Massif? Then come and join me on this 3-day trip that includes a night in the famous Margherita Hut.

About the guide

I was born in 1981 and live in the Aosta Valley, surrounded by the wonderful peaks of my region.

I started guiding in 2016.

I like all mountain activities: freeride skiing and ice climbing in winter, ski mountaineering in spring, mountaineering in the high mountain in summer and rock climbing whenever possible!

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
