Monte Rosa 5-day mountaineering traverse


Discover the Monte Rosa massif on this 5-day traverse led by one of the IFMGA-certified guides in the Peakshunter team. An unforgettable trip in an important range in Europe.


5 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




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!
