Monte Cervino one week guided ascent

Monte Cervino one week guided ascent | Switzerland

Challenge yourself in this 7-day ascent to Monte Cervino along with Fede, IFMGA mountain guide from Spain. The jewel of the Alps!


7 Days

Jun - Sep



Monte Cervino, also know as “Matterhorn” is the great mythical mountain of the Alps. Its unmistakable silhouette feeds the dream of all climbers who come here each year. With strength, dedication and professional guidance this ascent can become a reality!

That’s why I invite you to enjoy this incredible week in Monte Cervino. I propose a training and acclimatization process to have the greatest chances of success.

Our meeting point will be in Herbrüggen (Mattertal) where we’ll have a briefing talk and the equipment check. On day 2 we will take the Klein Matterhorn cable car. From there on, we’ll start the technical and mental preparation to climb this challenging summit.

If you want to be part of this experience you should have a good fitness level and some mountain techniques. Keep in mind we must use technical gear during the ascent and it is essential that you know how to handle it in height.

Come climb the mythical Monte Cervino with me and make your dream come true. All you have to do is sending me your request to book the trip. I’ll be waiting for your message!
