Description

Not much can be said about the amazing Matterhorn (4,478m) that hasn’t already been said. A glorious symbol of the beauty and immensity of the Alps, it is a fantastic peak to climb. And on this 5 day adventure, I would like to guide you to the great peak’s summit. Furthermore, I would like to guide you to the summit of the not as well known, but incredibly impressive Dent d’Herens (4,171m) as well.

Beginning in Bionaz, we will make our way to the Capanna Aosta hut. After that, you will get to climb the beautiful Dent d’Herens. After a transfer to Cervinia, you will get to spend a day exploring and enjoying Carellbiwak. And after that, on the fourth day of this trip, we will scale the mighty Matterhorn. On the final day of the trip, we will then return to Cervinia.

To participate on this trip, you should be an experienced climber. You should also be in good physical condition, as the climbs can be arduous.

2 of the 82 4,000 meter plus peaks in the Alps, both the Matterhorn and the Dent d’Herens are amazing climbs. And it would be my pleasure to guide you to the summits of both these fantastic and stunning mountains. To join me, please send me a request. I look forward to guiding you for 5 thrilling days.

Would you like to climb the highest mountain the eastern Alps? Then join me on this 3 day adventure to the summit of  Piz Bernina.

We got a guide for backcountry skiing in Chamonix. The guide was excellent in fulfilling our wishes even though the viability was poor and snow layer thin. Our goals was to in a quiet nature area with not too many people. We ended up with 1000 meter gain and a ski through the forest over a 6 hour period. I was one of my best ski experiences.

We had an amazing experience with Leo. Not only did he take us to a great bouldering location, but he really helped with technique to use for our future climbs. He was able to accommodate harder climbs for my husband while making sure I was still able to climb as a beginner. It was also extra special climbing with a local. Would recommend!
