    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.

    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!

    What People are Saying about Yann Decaillet


    Yann was a fantastic guide for the last 3 days in Verbier. He was flexible and really listened to what we wanted, which was fun and adventure but not too hard core. Our teenage children enjoyed the experience very much. We covered most of the resort and enjoyed some off-piste touring as well and we felt safe and informed the entire time.

    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!
