Matterhorn 4-day guided ascent

Matterhorn 4-day guided ascent | undefined

Maximize your chance to summit Mount Matterhorn by following this 4-day mountaineering course including the ascent of Weissmies with Yann, a local IFMGA mountain guide.


4 Days

Jun - Sep




Climbing Matterhorn through its normal route (Hörnli) generally takes 1 and 1/2 days. If you have doubts about your technical and physical level and if you want to be well acclimatized to the altitude, I propose you this 4-day guided course which will maximise your chances of reaching this awesome summit on the last day.

If you’ve already been climbing in the Zermatt region before, I can adapt the program and itinerary below according to your wishes and expectations.

You can find the itinerary below this description. Please note that the program is dependent on weather conditions.

You will be alone with me on the rope for the ascent of Mount Matterhorn. Somebody else could join us on the first few days. Another IFMGA mountain guide from our team would then join us for the last day.

If you want to climb Matterhorn and follow my preparation course to maximize your chances of reaching the summit and enjoying the most breathtaking views of the Alps, send me a request! It will be my great pleasure to guide you there.

We will go down, take the car to go to Täsch from where we will take a lift to Schwarzee. We will then hike to the Hörnli mountain hut.

About the guide

Mountain Guide

Attracted by the mountains since childhood, I started with climbing and alpinism. I then discovered my passion for ski touring.
I started a Young&Sport instructor training to lead young people in the mountain, accompanied by guides. This experience inspired me to become a mountain guide, and I got certified in September 2015.
I work in a guide's office with other guides friends as Stéphane, Raphael, Christian and Jean-Luc, mountain leader.
What I love the most: make people enjoy, allow them to discover a region, laughing, everything in a safe way.
So if there's something you wish, if you dream of exploring a region or country, don't hesitate to contact me.
See you soon for new discoveries!

What people are saying about Yann


2 jours fantastiques, avec un guide qui ressent bien jusqu'ou il peut pousser ses clients, qui explique beaucoup sur les techniques et la lecture du terrain (un grand plus!), et qui de plus est très sympa. A refaire chaque année! Bruno, Renaud et Mathieu


I often ski with Stephane. He is a very nice guide with a very good knowledge about security. He is always looking for the best spots which will combine excellent snow and safe conditions. He is very communicative and friendly.



Yann is a Young, Energetic and Experienced mountain guide. We have been Touring for 4 days in the Jungfrau Region with very mixed weather conditions. Yann showed me his abilities to lead under very tough weather conditions. Although always looking for Adventure and Challenges, even under the tough weather conditions, he proved his experienced as a guide and knowledge of the region. Safety is always first and from there we strive for our limits. We had an amazing 4-days and future adventures with Yann have already been discussed! Definitely the guide i want to rely on high up the mountains!



Après avoir du changer d'objectif initial à cause de la météo, nous étions parti pour le Zinalrothorn. Malheureusement, la roche était givrée et nous avons du faire demi-tour juste en dessous de l'épaule (4017m). Grâce à Yann qui connait bien la région, nous avons pu rattraper la journée en allant faire le sommet du Blanc de Moming par l'arrête E ou arrête du Blanc, très esthétique, bien raide et effilée. Malgré la déception due à la météo, nous avons malgré tout passer une journée incroyable en plein coeur de la Couronne Impériale. Je recommande vivement Yann et Jonathan. Vraiment sympas et très pros, on se sent en sécurité en toutes situations. Et leur connaissance du terrain permet d'envisager des alternatives de qualité. Merci a Explore-share.com de nous avoir mis en contact!



Once again it was a great experience and I was so happy to do it with Yann. It was only myself this time and we did a 3-day tour, came back on Saturday evening completely exhausted (which is a good sign!). This time he really challenged me and that's also what i was looking for. the first 4000m peak was climbed and it definitely taste to much more! The area is so impressive and spectacular!
