Zermatt has several climbing options for beginners. Come discover them with a certified mountain guide and have a great adventure!
Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
Although Zermatt is specially well-known for being a worldwide famous ski resort, this area in the Alps also offers endless mountain climbing options.
If you are not quite ready for big challenges in Zermatt, I can recommend tackling many other four-thousanders. One of them is the Breithorn, which is the "easiest" summit to climb around Zermatt.
The Castor and Pollux mountains are also gentle peaks. However, they involve some technical knowledge and a good fitness level.
All of them can be done in a couple of hours (no more than half a day). Please find here below 3 interesting climbing tours I am offering in Zermatt during the months of June, July, August and September.
Although its ascent must be done through an ice slope it's a non demanding climb. The round trip will take no more than 4 hours. I can guide a group of 5 people maximum. The prices are as follows:
1 person: 550 CHF;
2 persons: 280 CHF per person;
3-5 persons: 185 CHF per person.
It is a beautiful medium-difficulty high tour, where we'll have to apply some rock climbing techniques to reach the summit. That is why I can take with me only 2 guests. The ascent and descent of the Pollux will take us around 5-6 hours. The prices are the following ones:
1 person: 650 CHF;
2 persons: 340 CHF per person.
Another intermediate tour during which we must ascend snow slopes. It has steeper sections as well as a beautiful ridge at the end of the path. The total time of this climb will be between 5 and 6 hours. I can lead a group up to 2 participants.
1 person: 680 CHF;
2 persons: 350 CHF per person.
Once you have been bitten by the mountaineering bug you can look for other bigger challenges in the region. I also offer multi-day mountain trips, such as this 2-day climb to the Weissmies, in the Saas Fee Valley.
So contact me for more information or if you need help to decide which is the most suitable option for you. I'll be happy to guide you through the beautiful mountains of Zermatt!

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
