Description

Would you like to try a challenging Matterhorn climb in the Alps? Then join this 5-day program that will give you the proper preparation and allow you to get to the top of this stunning peak.

Matterhorn stands tall in the Alps at an altitude of 4,478 m (14,692 ft) and is one of the most emblematic peaks of this stunning range. Climbing to the top requires preparation and technique. On this program, we will have the chance to climb to the Matterhorn summit via Lion’s ridge.

We will begin with two days of training and acclimatization by tackling a half-crossing of the Breithorns. Then, we will begin our Matterhorn climb which will take us three days, enough to fully enjoy the environment around us. You can find a detailed itinerary below.

Keep in mind that the positive vertical drops we will face will not be higher than 1000 meters/day but will take place at high altitudes and with challenging technical passages. Therefore, you will need a good fitness level as well as previous mountain experience, preferably a bit of climbing or classic mountain climbing experience.

So are you ready to try an unforgettable Matterhorn climb with prior training? Then book your place now and join me on this 5-day program in the Alps!

Or, you can also join me on this exciting 2-day Monviso climb!

About the guide

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.
