Matterhorn 4-day guided ascent


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, Jul, Aug, 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.

In case you are looking for another classic climb, check out this 2-day ascent to La Dent Blanche.


Day 1: Almageller mountain hut.

We will first check your equipment and then move to Saastal to start hiking to the Almageller mountain hut. After a break and lunch at the refuge, we will go rock climbing or do the Dri Hörnli traverse in the afternoon.

Day 2: Almageller mountain hut.

We will climb the south ridge of Weissmies (4017m) going up and down the same way so that you get to know the rock. The night will be spent at the same hut as day 1, Almageller.

Day 3: Hörnli mountain hut.

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.

Day 4: Summit day

We will climb Matterhorn from the Hörnli route and come back the same way.

About the 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!
