Cervinia to Monte Rosa Guided Traverse


Join a certified guide on a thrilling 5 day traverse through the beautiful Monte Rosa massif in the Alps.



5 Days

Jul, Aug




  • Exceptional panorama over a large part of the Alpine Arc
  • Use of cable cars to avoid too long and exhausting walks


On this expedition, you will get to enjoy an extensive experience on the beautiful Monte Rosa massif. You will get to climb to the summits of several wonderful peaks. Those peaks include Breithorn (4,164m), Castor (4,228m), Vincent Pyrmaid (4,215m) and the Punta Gniffeti (4,554m). Each one of these summits offers its own unique set of glorious panoramic views of the Alps. Furthermore, you will also get to climb to the top of the Balmenhorn point (4,167m), where there is the stunning 4 meter high Christ of Summits statue.

Another wonderful aspect of this trip is that you will get to spend the nights in different mountain refuges. They include the Quintino Sella refuge (3,585m), the Guide Ayas refuge (3,420m), and either the Mantova refuge (3,498m) or the Gnifetti hut (3,611m). Also, depending on weather conditions and availability, you may also get to spend a night in the famous Margherita hut, at the summit of the Punta Gnifetti.

While this trip is not solely reserved for experts, participants should have some prior mountaineering experience. You should also be in good physical condition as well.

With such a long list of amazing peaks and refuges, I have no doubt, on this 5 day trip, you will have the time of your life. So send me a request, and let me show you the glory of Monte Rosa.

Robert was an incredible guide for our via ferrata experience! It was by far, our favorite day on our two week vacation in Italy. Robert is very experienced, and we felt completely safe and comfortable for the whole hike. We also left our hike with some incredible restaurant and hotel recommendations from him! If we make it back to the dolomites one day, we will definitely be booking another trip with Robert!

Very beautiful trip, with several different interesting types of challenges (need for snow shoes, crampons, varying temperatures, etc.) - We did the ascent in May which still means a lot of snow making the trip quite tough (you need to be in decent shape and have a some experience to enjoy the trip).

We had wonderful days and a lot fun. All arrangments were perfect and easy! Our guide Paolo has been not only an excellent mountain and skiing guide but also he is very nice and empatic person who shared his love and knowledge of the Aosta valley! Wonderful days and skitouring, well organised, we will come again!

Paolo made the ski trip a total success in difficult conditions. His knowledge and enthusiasm are worth the investment to get the max from this ski area. Thanks again

We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.
