Join and take part in this amazing trip to climb the awe-inspiring Dufourspitze in the Italian Alps! We will spend 2 full days together sharing this stupendous mountain-climbing experience to the insides of Monte Rosa’s peaks.

In the Alps, there are many extremely high peaks to reach. However, reaching the top of the Dufourspitze with its 4,634 meters is priceless.

This challenging climbing trip lasts 2 days and you can only do it during summer time.

We will ascend the mount through a very safe and elegant route. During our way to the top and back to the bottom, you will witness some marvelous landscapes.

The view of the Eastern face of Monte Rosa while descending is both wonderful and frightening.

Do not miss the unique opportunity to set foot on the Dufourspitze, the highest peak we will find when ascending Monte Rosa. The only massif higher than this in the Alps is Mont Blanc.

I will be your guide and our expedition will be in groups of not more than 2 people. This is to guarantee your safety as well as personalized guidance throughout the trip.

Even though it is not particularly difficult, in order to reach the top you have to be very careful. That is why we demand good physical conditions and for you to do exactly as the guide indicates.

We will sleep in a high-altitude hut, at 3647 meters. The second day will me more challenging since you will spend 10-12 hours descending via a jagged route.

Nonetheless, I can assure you this climbing mission and the landscapes you will see will stay printed in your head forever.

So don’t waste more time and join me on this wonderful trip to Monte Rosa’s highest peak: the Dufourspitze. I’ll be waiting for your contact. It will be a great pleasure to accompany and guide you through this especially courageous adventure to the Italian Alps.

You can also take a look at this 5-day mountaineering traverse in the massif.
