Mountain guide Herbert wants to lead you on a 2 day trek that will begin and end in Zermatt and take you to the beautiful and comfortable Monte Rosa hut.
Spend a night in the marvellous and modern Monte Rosa hut.
Gaze at the gorgeous peaks of the Alps, including the Matterhorn.
Spend time in the lovely resort town of Zermatt.
One of, if not the most modern mountain huts in not just the Alps, but in the entire world, just visiting the Monte Rosa hut is an amazing experience. However, on this 2 day trek, the hut is but one aspect of the adventure.
Beginning in the beautiful resort town of Zermatt, which you will get plenty of time to explore and enjoy, we will then make our way to the Gornergrat station. From the station, we will take a scenic ride on the famed Gornergrat train up to Rotenboden. After you’ve enjoyed some great views of Rotenboden, we will hike between 3 and 4 hours to the Monte Rosa hut. Each hour will see you ascending approximately 300 meters. We will also traverse the amazing Gorner glacier.
Once we reach the hut, you will get ample time to gaze out at the beauty of the Alps. You will get to see many of the area’s greatest peaks, including the renowned Matterhorn. After a comfortable night’s sleep, and some delicious food, on the following morning, we will make our way back to Rotenboden and then Zermatt, which will conclude the adventure.
As a result of the trekking conditions, participants on this trip should be in good physical condition.

The guide was very knowledgeable.
We were group of 3 with Herbert to the Monte Rosa drop off location. Our group has done lots of heli-skiing, cat skiing, and hiked routes. What we look for in guides is 1) safety 2) matching route to technical ability 3) advice in complex sections 4) having a personality and making the day fun. On safety: Herbert did a good safety briefing and told us where to position ourselves relative to his tracks, that was the extent of his safety. One of our group members fell part-way into a crevasse and was dangling on the ice wall, and he leisurely pulled out his rope to throw it down even after being told there was a very far drop. He routinely skiied out-of-sight of the entire group even in more dangerous sections. If someone had fallen through again, there was no rescuing them as he was the only one with the safety gear. On matching the route the technical ability of the group he did fine, the only part that was an issue was the very long flat ski out (he warned us about this, so we knew it ahead of time, I wouldn\'t do this route again because of this). On advice/tips for complex routes, he had nothing to offer, and was annoyed when you asked him questions, the only thing he said was \"lean forward on your skiis\", and didn\'t try to help anyone who had challenges. On the last part, personality, this was the worst. He was extremely annoyed that he had to help the person out of the crevasse, and even more annoyed that a snowboarder in our group was slower in the flat section. He complained to other ski guides that passed by that he was late for his lunch. When we stopped to break and took pictures he asked us to stop wasting time with taking our phones out. When we asked him if we should bring water (for a 5 hour ski) he said it\'s no necessary, which was crazy. Overall, it really put a damper on the entire experience, we spent a lot of money and came from Canada to experience this, and he nearly ruined it. He\'s a really good technical skiier, but has no patience nor does he put an ounce of effort in to making it fun or making people feel safe.
My wife and I had an incredible day with Herbert in Zermatt. Our guide did an excellent job of adjusting the skiing to fit our ability. Would not hesitate to highly recommend Herbert.....thank you for an epic memory.
