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.

Mountain 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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
