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!
