Description

The Matterhorn (4,478m) is one of the most famous mountains in the world. There is an array of reasons behind its fame, from its legendary, almost perfectly symmetrical peak, to the glaciers that surround it, to the four famous ridges that split its four steep faces. It would be difficult to choose just one thing, almost impossible. However, few, if anybody, can argue that the Matterhorn is an absolutely spectacular peak, and on this 2 day excursion, we will climb to its gorgeous summit from the resort town of Cervinia, in the Aosta Valley of Italy.

The ascent and descent will be challenging, but not to the point where you have to be an expert to do it. However, there are some difficult spots, so mountaineering experience is necessary. But that can be expected when you are climbing one of the highest peaks in all of Europe!

The first day of this journey will begin in Cervinia. From there we will start the climb via the Leone ridge until we reach the Rifugio Carrel, where we will spend the night. On the second day, we will climb to the summit of the Matterhorn. Once there, you will get to bask in one of the best views in the entire Alps mountain range. Finally, after you have taken in enough memories to last a lifetime, we will make our descent along the same route we came.

Please note that Matterhorn is not suitable for beginners. Previous mountaineering experience (including technical skills) is required.

The Matterhorn is a breathtaking peak, and one that countless climbers dream of scaling. And on this trip, I will guide you to its summit and back in just 2 days. So if that sounds like something you want to do, send me a message, and lets go!

And if you would like to climb the Matterhorn from Zermatt in Switzerland, I can also guide you on this 2 day trip.

More info

Participants should remember to bring mountain boots, sunglasses, a 30 litre backpack, a Daisy chain or Longe, 2 screw carabiners and 2 pairs of gloves. If you do not have a harness, helmet, classic crampons and a classic ice axe, I can rent you those items. If you need it, keep in mind that we can arrange the transfers for you. Also, if you're not sure about your level or would like to take an acclimatization day, I can offer you the chance to make a test day before the summit in Cian Peak, Monviso or Dent du Giant, depending on weather conditions. These mountains are similar to the Matterhorn. The test day is just a recommendation, but it's useful for you and the guide to know whether you're ready for the climb.
