The goal of this classic mountaineering and climbing program is to ascend three of the most notorious peaks in the Alps: Mont Blanc, Matterhorn and Eiger. Join me on this 12-day unforgettable tour, for climbers with previous snow and rock experience.
First, we will spend several days training to get your body ready to face the high altitude. On the first day, I will go over the basics of mountaineering, including: walking with crampons and handling the rope and the ice axe.
As preparation for the ascents, during the 4 first days we will go rock and ice climbing on these great areas:
- Aiguilles Rouges (north of Chamonix)
- Aiguille du Midi
- Aiguille d’Entreves (one of the most beautiful spots in the Alps!)
- Dent du Geant (4,013 m)
All along, we will have amazing views of the peaks along the Mont Blanc range as background.
On Day 5, we will reach the Gouter Hut (3,835 m). This is where we will prepare for the Mont Blanc (4,810 m) ascent on Day 6, the first summit day on the program.
Next, on Day 7 we will transfer to Zermatt and hike up to the Hornli hut. Next day, I will guide you towards our second summit: Mount Matterhorn (4,487 m).
After resting on Day 9, we will transfer to Grindelwad. Next day, we will take a train and hike up to the Mittelligi refuge. Finally, Day 11 will be our final summit day: we will ascend to the amazing Mount Eiger (3,970 m).
While the costs of lodging on a half board basis when in huts are included, hotel fees are not. This program requires one guide per guest. If needed, I will organize another IFMGA guide to join us.
