Discover the stunning mountain views of the Alps from the top of the Matterhorn.
Join me on the ascent of the Matterhorn via its North Face, one of the most challenging mountaineering adventures in the Alps!
The Matterhorn lies on the border between Switzerland and Italy. Also known as Monte Cervino, it is one of the most famous mountains in the Alps. This is due to its spectacular pyramidal shape. It is 4,478 meters high and it is the 5th highest summit of the Alps.
The North Face of Matterhorn consists of a 1,200-meter wall. It can only be
climbed by very specific conditions when the humid snow, smashed by the
wind against the face, sticks to the steep wall and keeps all the loose rock
together, also making progression much faster. On this program, we will tackle it together and descend through the north-eastern ridge (the Hörnli Ridge). Additionally, we will pass by the Solvay hut where we will spend our second night, just after reaching the summit.
For safety reasons, if you are interested to come with me, we will need to
meet each other beforehand and climb together. This will allow me to assess
your mountaineering experience, and you to trust me on the mountains.
Keep in mind that the North Faces of the Alps 4-day training program is
mandatory for climbing together the big faces of the Alps and it’s not included in the price. We might climb routes such as Aiguille Verte, Supercouloir du Tacul, or some gullies on the north face of the Aiguille du Midi, etc. On this, you will be challenged on everything you need to know to climb the Matterhorn safely and successfully!
If I had to sum up the main reasons why I like climbing the North Face of Matterhorn, I’d probably say:
Please send me a request if you are interested in climbing the North Face of Matterhorn. I’ll be glad to guide you there and allow you to live a unique mountaineering experience!
We can also go for other technical ascents like the North Face of Eiger or the ascent of Les Grandes Jorasses. If you’d like to know more about the great north faces of the Alps, check out this article!

We will hike from Zermatt to the Hornli mountain hut where we will spend our first night.
We will climb Matterhorn North Face and stay at the Solvay hut on our way down.
On the 3rd day, we will climb down and hike till Zermatt where we will celebrate our adventure!
My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
I\'ve now been on multiple adventures with Enrico, from him first teaching me the ways of ice climbing in Feb 2017 to us summiting the Matterhorn via the Lion\'s Ridge in Sep 2019, with many other climbs in between. He\'s amazing at his craft, teaching you everything you need to know whilst also having a good laugh. He\'s the guide I\'ll always choose for an adventure in the mountains and I\'m always ready to recommend him to any friends at any skill level.
Here is the summary of my experience with Explore-share and Enrico: Explore-share was one of several companies I considered before my trip to the Alps. I was very happy with my choice from the moment I sent my first email. The staff members responded promptly and answered all of my questions very clearly and kindly. I was blown away with the professionalism they have demonstrated. Two days after sending my first email I was in contact with my guide, Enrico. With Enrico we climbed different routes in the area of Mt. Blanc and practiced different techniques for about ten days. Enrico was an excellent guide. He was patient, thoughtful, and improved my skills tremendously. He was very thorough and safety conscious. After ten days of climbing I felt a lot of trust between the two of us, which I believe makes us a good team for future climbing adventures. I would highly recommend Explore-share and Enrico to anyone who is planning to explore the beauty of the Alps and take the challenge of climbing these magnificent mountains. During my trip I met Italian, French, Swiss and German guides. All of them were extremely enthusiastic and nice. Going to Europe for climbing? Choose European professionals. You will not be disappointed.
