The Matterhorn is one of the most famous mountains in the Alps. It’s a pyramidal-shaped peak standing at 4478 meters in height.

Every approaching route to the Matterhorn is a challenging one. So, no matter the way you choose, it won’t be easy. It’s super important to have a good fitness condition and some prior mountaineering experience.

Our starting point will be Zermatt. Once there, we will take the cable car to the Black Lake and continue on foot for 2 hours until we reach the Hörnli hut. The following day we’ll start with an early breakfast at 4 AM. After a 10 minute walk, we will arrive to our trailhead to begin the ascent via the Hornli ridge.

If you want to join me on this 2-day adventure through the Matterhorn do not hesitate to contact me and get yourself ready for some mountain action!

And if you are willing to continue having the Alps under your feet for three more days, check out the Jungfrau ascent!

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in Kranj, Slovenia. I am a biology teacher and I also have been a professional alpinist for more than 30 years. Until now, I’ve reached 4 eight-thousanders around the world: Broad Peak, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri and Mount Everest.

In fact, I am the first (and still only) Slovenian female reaching ‘the roof of the world’. Together with my husband Andrej, we entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the first married couple to stand on Mt Everest.

Beyond the Himalayas, I climbed in Alaska, South America and Japan, among other places.

Sport climbing as well as competition and rock climbing have a very important place in my life and have taken me to many incredible and challenging places around the world.
