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!
