    The Monte Rosa traverse is an unforgettable hut-to-hut journey among mountains over 4000 meters of height. Come with me and discover this amazing mountain range!

    The program that I’d like to propose here will take 5 days. However I can adapt it according to your preferences, your technical level and the time you have in the region.

    The program starts from the Ayas Valley. We’ll quietly begin the trek in order to acclimatize our bodies. We will then walk through beautiful glaciers in direction to the Capanna Regina Margherita. As you may know, it is the highest mountain hut in Europe at 4554 meters.

    Please find more details of the day by day itinerary at the bottom of this page. The Monte Rosa traverse is an opportunity you cannot miss. It will be an unforgettable adventure in one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in Europe!

    So I invite you to contact me if you find this trip interesting. Fill out the form and book your private program in Monte Rosa!

    What People are Saying about Peaks Hunter Mountain Guide Team

     

    I want to post my review on Peaks Hunter Mountain Guides ( see below).I climbed Mont Blanc in September 2019 with Peak Hunter Mountain Guides. The service I received was excellent. They provided me with all the information I requested and more. Scheduling was clear and everything went as it was planned. My guide, Luigi Gagliardi, is a highly skilled professional. He did a great job taking me to the summit, providing me with all instructions and taking a great care of me. I learnt a lot from him. He is also a great person.

    We were guided by PeaksHunter in a Gran Paradiso ascent, and it was memorable! We just would like to thank Silvia and Elis for the wonderful trip we\'ve experienced with their guidance. The communication and organization before and during the trip was clear and detailed. We felt completely supported and safe accompanied by Silvia and Elis. Thanks for clarify all our questions and help us very kindly mainly considering our lack of experience in trips like that. At supermarket, the ride to the park, the lunch before we start, during the trail, at meals in the mountain, at all these moments we had great company and support. This was our first ascent in this altitude and Silvia and Elis demonstrated be professionals very experienced and high skilled. We appreciate the way they enjoy the nature in a respectful and safe manner. They were attentive to the minor details regarding our security and also our experience. We are lucky to have had you as our guides. The best photo we took it is not enough to express how good is the feeling to be at this point in the mountains and appreciate pure nature. We saw landscapes completely new for our eyes in a memorable experience. Silvia and Elis, thank you very much. We really appreciate our time in Gran Paradiso and we feel lucky to be guided by you.
