Spaghetti tour: 4-day ski traverse in Monte Rosa | undefined

A ski traverse in Monte Rosa massif to ascend several 4000s in 4 days. Join Jan, IFMGA certified mountain guide, in the Spaghetti tour.



4 Days





* Explore several peaks in Switzerland and Italy.

* Enjoy a complete mountaineering experience in Monte Rosa.

* Spend the nights in comfortable mountain huts.


Join me in this magnificent Spaghetti tour: a 4-day ski mountaineering tour around the Monte Rosa massif. During this intense trip we will ascend several peaks in the area, between Italy and Switzerland.

We will meet in Zermatt, from where we go up to Klein Matterhorn by cable car. On the first day, we ascend the famous Breithorn. The second day we conquer two peaks: Castor and Felikhorn. On the third day, we also attempt two 4000ers, Ludwigshohe and the Pyramide Vincent. And before returning to Zermatt on the last day, we will summit Signalkuppe and Zumsteispitze.

So there's no doubt that at the end of this tour you will have climbed enough peaks in the area! In my opinion, it's a great way to explore the Monte Rosa massif. Besides, we spend the nights in Italian mountain huts, enjoying their hospitality and delicious food. In fact, that's where the name of this tour comes from!

Tempted to spend 4 amazing days ascending so many peaks on your skis? Then please send me a request as I would love to guide you up there! Another fantastic option that you can check out is the ski traverse from Chamonix to Zermatt.

I've been skiing and climbing since my early childhood. I graduated in 2005 from the Univerzity of Hradec Kralove with a Master degree at the Faculty of Education. Since then I worked as a history and PE teacher. I was also running an Outdoor sport's club at that time, spending plenty of time climbing, skiing etc. with my students.

In 2009, I became a full time skiing and climbing instructor.

2009 – APUL C ski instructor
2010 – APUL B ski instructor
2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)
– MSMT climbing instructor and Mountain leader
2013 – entered the UIAGM mountain guide education
2014 – passed the UIAGM Aspirant exam.
2015 - Succeeded the UIAGM / IFMGA final exam

Spending your holiday with you would be my pleasure. Whether in winter on a ski tour (in Czech Republic or Austria) or in summer among the spectacular sandstone towers.

It will be, with no doubt, a very pleasant experience for all of us. I'm an easygoing, friendly and reliable person with a good sense for responsibility.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with me !

What people are saying about Jan



I had a great time and the guide really made me feel like we were friends on a day of climbing. Would do again! Thank you.



This review is not for Jan Novotny, but for Juras Sefl. Unfortunately communication with Explore share was very haphazard, and I got the feeling if I hadn’t established contact a few aus prior to our climbing date, it wouldnt have happened. No contact from jan Novotny who was indisposed and got his friend Juras to fill in last minute. Juras Sefl was excellent, reliable and took excellent care of my first time climbing teenagers who felt safe in his hands and trusted him. I wasn’t so impressed with the head organisation, as I say, communication and organisation was not optimal and I wasn’t sure what kind of service we would get. No communication with the guide. Anyhow, the overall climbing experience with Juras was excellent.



Jan was knowledgeable about the history and geography of the area, the route and pace were goid for me, he helped me with my attempt to learn Czech, the weather and snow were mostly good, altogether a very enjoyable day.



Guide: Jan Hais! What a great ski tour our threesome had in the Giant Mountains in the spring of 2022, with our guide Jan Hais. The weather was great, as was the culture of alpine huts and mountain lore in the land of the giant, Krkonoše. But the trip was really pulled together in such a successful way by the skill of our guide. He was an expert at understanding our needs. We were strong and experienced in some ways, yet less so in others, particularly in the use of alpine touring gear. Jan expertly knew when to give us room to roam, yet to jump into help when we needed it. Excellent! We did seem to fall through the cracks a little in pre-trip communications—not our guide’s fault. However, Jan listened empathetically to our concerns and his professionalism reassured us. Thank you, Jan Hais. Thanks, too, to the team at Explore-Share for reaching out to us over our pre-trip hiccups.



it was great! Jiri is a fantastic guide and man, we all enjoyed being with him a lot!!!
