Highlights

  • Spend a full day climbing the amazing West Breithorn peak in the Swiss Alps.
  • Marvel at several gorgeous peaks from the summit, including the Matterhorn.
  • Considered one of the easier climbs in the Alps.

Description

The West Breithorn mountain (4,165m) is a gorgeous peak in the Swiss Alps. And on this trip, you will get to climb this magnificent mountain in just one day!

Positioned amidst a number of famed and beautiful peaks, including Castor (4,228m) and the mighty Matterhorn (4,478m), climbing the West Breithorn peak is a tremendous experience. And from the peak’s summit, you will not only get to admire those aforementioned mountains, but several other incredible peaks. You will also get to gaze far out in the breathtaking landscape of the Alps, including its valley, rivers and glaciers.

Along with a reputation of great beauty and excitement, the West Breithorn peak is also considered one of the easier peaks in the Swiss Alps to climb. As a result, this trip is not reserved solely for expert climbers. Instead, intermediate level climbers can also enjoy the thrill of scaling a 4000 meter plus peak in the Alps. However, it is nonetheless important that all participants on this trip are in good physical condition.

Perfect for people who are still learning the intricacies of high altitude mountain climbing, this trip will teach you as well as amaze you. To join me on this full day climbing adventure, just send me a request. I know you’ll have a great time.

I also offer another full day climbing adventure to the summit of the Aiguille Marbrees in the French Alps, near Mont Blanc.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
