3 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug




  • Conquer the Swiss Alps and ascend the Matterhorn via Hornli ridge.
  • Capture the iconic beauty of Switzerland's most dramatic peak.
  • Benefit from having a fully-qualified guide accompanying you.


It’s difficult to overstate the legendary nature of the Matterhorn. The dramatic pyramid peak cloaked in snow is an iconic image of the Swiss Alps.

Stretching to 4,478 meters above sea level, it is also one of the highest summits not only in the Alps but in Europe.

The Matterhorn has four steep faces, which rise above surrounding glaciers, and are split by four ridges: the Leone ridge, Zmutt ridge, Furggen ridge and the Hornli ridge.

Each of these ridges contains their own experience. We will ascend the Hornli ridge, the most popular to climb.

Before we conquer the great alpine peak, we will have a training day to prepare for the climb around the area of Cervinia, or not too far from there. This area lies at the foot of the Matterhorn, and is a great location to practice.

On the second day we’ll begin our ascent from the world-class alpine town of Zermatt and climb towards the Hornli hut. From here, our third day will take us to the summit of the Matterhorn. An unforgettable achievement that rewards you with spectacular panoramic views.

Potential participants on this ascent are required to have a very good level of fitness as well as previous mountaineering experience.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on a thrilling 3-day ascent to the summit of the Matterhorn via the Hornli ridge.
