5 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct




  • Climb to the summit of the incredible Matterhorn.
  • Scale the rarely climbed, but still impressive Dents d'Herens.
  • Spend a day exploring and enjoying Carellbiwak.


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.

About the guide

I'm a professional UIAGM mountain guide who works all over the world and has an addiction for traveling and working in many different places. I live in the southern part of Bavaria/Germany in a beautiful region called Allgäu. It's the perfect location to explore the Alps.

I work as a guide year-round and I love spending time with my clients in the mountains. Fulfilling their dreams and sharing beautiful moments together is what motivates me to do a great job every day.

I have spent a lot of time in the mountains since I was a kid. Mountaineering, climbing, ice climbing and running have always been a big part of my life and I hope to continue for many more years.

I was part of the German National Ski Mountaineering Team and have competed in all major global races, including Pierra Menta, PDG, Mezzalama, Tour du Rutor etc. I participated in many Worldcup races as well. This experience was very important for my guiding career in terms of motivation, knowledge and experience!

I guide my clients all over the world. I'll take you anywhere you want to go and we can reach a mountaineering goal together.

Please get in touch with me if you're interested in one of my programs or want to discuss a particular goal you have in the mountains. It will be a pleasure to make you an offer and discuss projects and plans for the future.

Hope to see YOU in the mountains.
