Description

Reaching the summit of the legendary and spectacular Matterhorn (4087m) is a dream for every mountaineer. I invite you to join me on this 6-day guided ascent, with a gradual approach and training, key to suceed on this challenging climb.

The Matterhorn lies in the Monte Rosa area, in the Pennine Alps, between Italy and Switzerland. This impressive mountain has four steep faces, rising above the surrounding glaciers.

During the first 4 days, the guide ratio will be 1 guide for 2 clients; the last 2 days, it will be 1 guide/1 client.

Our adventure begins in the town of Courmayeur. This 6-day complete programme includes acclimatization climbs before the ascent. We will reach the summit of Gran Paradiso on the third day of the tour.

On the sixth day, we will head towards our goal: the amazing summit of Matterhorn. This will be a long and exciting day, and absolutely rewarding! From the top of Matterhorn we will have a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains.

The gradual approach that I propose here is essential in order for you to know your strenghts and limits. Through successive stages, you will learn how to move on the rocky and challenging terrain of high mountains, improving your mountaineering skills and getting ready for our main goal. It is also very important to acclimatize well to altitude, and this progressive approach is the best way to do it.

Please note climbing the Matterhorn requires previous mountaineering experience and an excellent physical shape. Also, you need previous rock climbing experience at high altitude (Grade 4).

Join me on this amazing ascent to the summit of this legendary peak in Europe. Send me a request and get ready for a challenging and unforgettable adventure. 

If you want to train yourself with a previous ascent before Matterhorn, you can check my Gran Paradiso 4-day guided ascent. If you are looking for a more challenging ascent, you can check my Mont Blanc 6-day ascent.

About the guide

guide profile img

I have been working as a mountain guide for more than ten years, and I still love my job very much! The great mountains of the Alps are my favorite playground: Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso are my favorite destinations.

Great summer ascents and magnificent ski mountaineering tours in winter and spring.
