Type of Trip
The Matterhorn or Cervino (4478m) is at the border between Italy and Switzerland. If you love the mountains, I have no doubt that this ascent is in your bucket list! Indeed, it’s one of the most famous mountains in the world.
As Zermatt is nearby, we will meet there to start this 2-day trip. I chose the Hornli ridge route for the ascent, on the northeastern side. It’s probably the easiest route to the top. After reaching the Hörnli Hut on the first day, we set to reach the summit on day 2. Once we get there, you will understand why everyone dreams with it!
An extra advantage of this program? The röstis at the hut are exceptional!
Please note that to be able to enjoy this expedition to its maximum, it’s better to acclimatize. You could go for something easire like the Breithorn traverse or the Pollux. I can arrange this as well!
Interested in experiencing this challenging but immensely rewarding ascent? Then don’t hesitate to send me a request! I will be waiting for your message. Also, check out the Breithorn Mountaineering Traverse Route, a perfect preparation and acclimatization traverse for the ascent of Matterhorn. And if you are looking for more adventures in the Alps, I also love to ascend Zinalrothorn.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
At the Hörnli Hut.
If you plan to arrive by plane, you'll have the choice between Zurich, Geneva, Basel or Milan airport and then either take a train or a shuttle bus to reach Zermatt.
About the Guide
I am a mountain guide and ski instructor based in Verbier, Switzerland.
During the summer, I enjoy very much bringing my friends and clients on the 4000 meters of the Alps and do some rock climbing in high altitude. During the winter and spring, I love going freeride skiing, ski touring and guide on the ice falls. I'll be happy to be your guide and share wonderful mountain experiences with you. Feel free to have a look at some of my programs and get in touch with me if you are interested by one of them.
