Description

Would you like to climb the awe-inspiring Dufourspitze in the Italian Alps! Then join me on this stupendous 2-day mountain-climbing experience to the top of the highest peak on the Monte Rosa massif.

Climbing to the top of the Dufourspitze with its 4,634 meters is an experience you will never forget. This challenging climb takes 2 days and can only be done in the summer.

On this program, we will ascend the mount through a very safe and elegant route. I will guide you in groups of no more than 2 people in order to guarantee your safety as well an offer personalized guidance throughout the trip. You will require a good fitness level and a careful ear to the guide’s instructions in order to reach the summit.

After climbing on the first day, we will sleep in a high-altitude hut, at 3647 meters. Then, the second day will be more challenging since we will spend 10-12 hours descending via a jagged route. Nonetheless, the rewards will be well worth the effort!

So, are you ready to climb the Dufourspitze? Then send me a request and let’s start planning an unforgettable adventure in the Alps! I will be happy to guide you!

Gabriele was a fantastic guide, knew the area well and found so much powder. Thanks so much

Hello Basically I am satisfied with the whole organization, because in the end everything worked as expected, whereby the guide had a big part in the success! Unfortunately, the information regarding equipment was unclear in advance and sometimes varied, which didn't make it any easier for a beginner like me. In general, the flow of information was rather slow, but towards the end it was sufficient and quick. In general, I would recommend that you revise the list of necessary equipment! Above all, it should be clear what the guest has to bring (with a distinction between "must" and "recommended"), what is provided by the organizer and what could be rented if necessary. Of course, this is not easy to accomplish, as the necessary equipment also depends on the conditions. Best wishes and continued success with the organization of ski trips! Martin

Great service. Above and beyond expectations. Abigail went the extra mile to make my trip happen, after hours and at very short notice. It would not have been possible without her. Highly recommended.

Silvia was fantastic in helping get everything set up, from recommending accommodations and buses to organizing the meet-up with my guide. Mateo was a great guide, found the perfect route for my experience and skill level. A truly amazing experience that I didn't think would be possible.
