The Matterhorn (4478m) is one of the highest summits in Europe. And one of the most emblematic in the world, that’s for sure!

Its ascent can be challenging, but I propose here a full week of preparation, ascending other peaks in the area. In this way you will maximize your chances of success for the last day.

My plan is to teach you during the week all the skills you need to summit Matterhorn, and put them in practice throughout the program.

In my opinion, this is the best option if you don’t have much mountaineering experience. But you still have to be in good shape!

Once you reach the top of this famous mountain, you will understand why it is so coveted among mountaineers. The feeling up there is amazing!

During the program we will climb the Riffelhorn, the Breithorn, the Pollux and more. In addition, on one of the days we’ll get the chance to do some via ferrata.

Interested in this approach to climb Matterhorn? It’s also a great opportunity to get to know the area! Please contact me, I will be waiting for your message. And if you don’t have so much time available, I also guide other ascents, including the Breithorn traverse.


In mountain huts and in a hotel at Zermatt.
