Description

The Punta Gnifetti (4,554m) is a gorgeous peak in the Pennine Alps. Also known as Signalkuppe in German, this wonderful peak, standing on the border between Switzerland and Italy, is park of the Monte Rosa Massif.

On this 2 day trip you will not only get to enjoy the thrilling climb to Punta Gnifetti’s summit. You will also get to enjoy an unrivalled view of the Alps from the famous Regina Margherita refuge. This amazing mountain hut, which sits at the summit of the peak, is the highest mountain hut in all of Europe. The hut, named after the Italy’s Queen consort, Marghertia of Savoy, is truly incredible. Due to the altitude, the hut is also draped in sheet copper to ward off electrical fields.

On the first day of the trip, we will depart from Gressoney and spend 2 to 3 hours hiking to the Refuge Mantova (3,470m). On the second day, we will spend 8 to 9 hours making our way up and then back down the Punta Gnifetti. When we reach the summit, you can rest assured that you will have ample time to enjoy the amazing view, as well as the unique experience of seeing it from the Margherita hut.

What makes this trip even more amazing is that the climb itself is not that difficult. That means even mountaineering beginners can participate and enjoy the wonder of Punta Gnifetti and the famous Margherita hut on its summit!

If this sounds like something you want to spend 2 days doing in the Pennine Alps, send me a message, and lets make it happen.

I also offer other 2 day, easy climbs in the Pennine Alps, including this adventure to the summit of the Vincent Pyramid.
