Description

I am happy to offer this trekking program in the Alps. It consists in a 9-day hike around the Monte Rosa massif. One of the most popular destinations for mountain lovers! 

The Monte Rosa massif lies between Piedmont and the Aosta Valley in Italy and the Swiss canton of Valais. It is the largest massif of the Alps and hosts a large number of peaks of over 4,000 meters. The Monte Rosa is also the second highest massif in Western Europe, after the Mont Blanc.

The origin of its name is not in the pink color shown by the mountain at dawn or dusk. The term refers to the word “glacier” which in the patois language it’s spelled “rouja” or “roisa”.

Without doubt, the Monte Rosa is a great destination for hiking, mountain climbing and skiing trips. Not only for its amazing landscapes, but also for the wide network of huts the region offers.

This Monte Rosa tour consists in a cross-border trekking between Italy and Switzerland. In addition, I will take you through the impressive valleys of Zermatt and Saas Fee in Switzerland. We’ll approach the Aosta Valley (Italy) as well.

The landscape during this 9-day trek in Monte Rosa will surprise us with a multitude of peaks of more than 4,000 meters and spectacular glaciers. And as a coronation of such an amazing trip we’ll reach the Matterhorn, also known as Monte Cervino.

At the bottom of this description you will find more details about the itinerary of the program. That is a sample itinerary, any item can be adapted to your level and expectations.

For more information or if you want to book your place for next departures (July and August) please fill out the form. It will be my pleasure to guide you through the Italian and the Swiss Alps!

About the guide

guide profile img

AEGM and UIMLA guide from Spain.

I'm a mountain lover since I went up to Mulhacén at the age of 14. Since then I've been to mountains all around the world, always looking for new challenges.

I like to share the love I feel for the mountains, and all what I learned out there during all these years.

Some of my credentials:

- Certified mountain guide for blind people (UNED foundation)
- Wilderness Guide (WGA, currently in process)
- Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA certified)
- Member of the Spanish Association of Mountain Guides (AEGM) and member of the Union of International Mountain Leaders Association (UIMLA)

Regarding my experience, I've done ascents and trekkings in the Alps, Pyrenees, Atlas range, Andes, Himalayas and Norway. I'm originally from Granada, in Andalucía, so I know in detail the region of Sierra Nevada.
