Description

The Matterhorn (4,478m) is a truly remarkable, legendary mountain. Everything about it is impressive, especially its unmistakable appearance. It’s iconic peak is an almost perfect example of Nature’s ability to create spectacular symmetry.

The mountain has four faces. Each face is steep and rises above the glaciers that surround the mountain. Each face points to the four directions of a compass, and are split by four ridges. Those ridges include the Hornli ridge, the Furggen ridge, the Leone ridge and the Zmutt ridge.

There are multiple ways to climb the Matterhorn. All of which offer their own challenges and each one is a unique experience. On this trip, we will ascend and descend by way of the Hornli ridge.

For day 1, we will depart from the popular town of Zermatt and make our way up to the Hornli hut (3,260m), where we will spend the night. At the hut you will get to enjoy a beautiful evening view of the stars above. For day 2, we will climb to the Matterhorn’s summit. From the summit you will get to indulge in a view you will never forget that will include some of the best peaks of the Alps, and Zermatt down below.

Both the ascent and descent will be a challenge. However, I will see to it that you make it to this incredible mountain’s equally incredible summit safely.

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

Send me a message if you want to join me on this adventure that will take you from Switzerland to the top of one of the world’s most famous mountains. 

And if you would like to climb the Matterhorn from Cervinia in Italy, you can also join me on this 2 day ascent.
