For 5 thrilling days, E-S Adventure Guides would like to lead you on an expedition that includes the summit of the great Matterhorn as well as the Dent d'Herens.



5 Days

Jun - 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.

What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



We had a great day with Leo. He drove us to a spot with many problems from easy to hard. He was super supportive and positive and gave excellent coaching and climbing advice. He didn't just give beta but really worked with us on the subtle techniques necessary at Fontainebleau.



Petit couac pendant l'organisation, mais tout est rentré dans l'ordre et c'est très bien passé au final



It was great experience! Leo is an outstanding guide, we enjoyed a lot.



My 12-year-old nephew and I recently spent a thrilling half-day climbing the via ferrata of Les Grands Malades near Namur, and we absolutely loved the adventure. The experience was quite challenging at times, providing us with an exhilarating dose of adrenaline. It’s definitely not for those with a fear of heights. Our guide, Willy, was fantastic—ensuring our safety while being both educational and fun. We completed the via ferrata in two hours and spent an additional hour climbing and abseiling. Overall, it was an unforgettable experience that I highly recommend. Thank you, Explore-Share and Willy, for such a great via ferrata tour. We can’t wait to tackle the via ferrata of Marche les Dames next!



My wife and three daughters ages 8,11, and 12. Had a great time. Not a “nose to tail” ride.
