Matterhorn 2 Day Guided Climb From Switzerland

Matterhorn 2 Day Guided Climb From Switzerland

Join one of the IFMGA-certified guides in the Peakshunter team on this 2 day guided ascent of the famed Matterhorn mountain from Zermatt in Valais, Switzerland.

Not specified


2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




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.

My summit attempt with Peakshunter was splendid. Jacopo was a fantastic guide and made me feel safe during the entire attempt. He also shared some great knowledge about climbing and mountains in general. Unfortunately we had to turn back before the summit due to the weather conditions, which was the right decision considering the circumstances. Peakshunter provided all relevant information and were always willing to answer questions if I had any. The first contact with the guide was also seamless and smooth. I will most definitely pick Peakshunter if I go for another attempt next year and highly recommend their services!

Wasn't able to go to Matterhorn due to the weather but able to reschedule it to next year. Otherwise the trip would have been perfect. But Claudio the guide was really good and nice and offered a lot of advice and help for climbing Mont Blanc. Thanks a lot for everything!

How was my trip? AWESOME. The service at Explore-Share is superb. And the guide I had, Elis, was just great. Every moment on my climb I felt super safe with him. Had so much fun climbing the Matterhorn. Thank you!

One thing I was not happy with that l had to book Horinlihut when I was already in Switzerland. As a tourist, it's not easy to give a call since I didn't have a phone. Honrlihut had a cookie problem, so I could book online. Why don't you give a price that includes hut? then you book for a client? It would be more appreciated. Apart from that, I had a wonderful guide! Thanks so much indeed.

The whole experience of the Mont Blanc climb was awesome. I was really lucky to have Claudio Bastrentaz from Peaks Hunter Mountain Guide Team as a guide. He is very professional and a great guy to be with on the mountain. We made it to the summit before sunrise and the views were spectacular. It will be a memory for life.
