Description

The Matterhorn (4778m) is probably the most famous mountain in the Alps. It's the landmark of Switzerland. Every ambitious mountaineer dreams of standing on its summit at least once! I can make this dream come true,

The Matterhorn dominates Zermatt. It not only attracts mountaineers: everyone coming to the area seems to want to see it from up close.

With the safety of the rope, this dream tour will come true. Over the famous Hörnligrat, we will climb the landmark of Switzerland. It will be an unforgettable adventure with grandiose views. It will be a hard but certainly satisfying trip!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
