Matterhorn Guide

Climb the Jewell of the Swiss Alps!
The Matterhorn, “Monte Cervino” to Italians, or “Mont Cervin” to the French, lies on Switzerland and Italy's border and reaches 4478m to its peak. The wonderfully exposed climb is the most challenging of the classic Alps routes. The peak's iconic pyramid is recognized by climbers and non-climbers alike and is a highly respected feat by those in the mountaineering community. Unlike Mont Blanc, previous technical alpine and rock climb experience is required for the climb, which is mostly rock and ice.

Our trip plan includes a three-day warm-up, taking advantage of some of the exceptional climbing the area offers while acclimating and, of course, soaking up the rich Italian culture. Three days are set aside for your summit attempt to account for weather contingency, maximizing your attempt's success.

Our European offer everything you need from the start to the finish of your summit attempt. Small group guiding  - 2:1 on the warm-up and 1:1 on the climb - guarantees your safety and an unbeatable experience.
