Matterhorn and Monte Rosa are among the most famous and incredible mountains in the entire Alps range. This trekking is going to explore this particular part of the Alps where the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa are dominating the mountain landscape. It is the border with Switzerland and Italy and we are going to see huge ice mass and the highest mountains of the Alps. If you like to see big mountains, glaciers and the highest peaks of Europe this trekking is the one for you. It’s a quite famous place of course and we will not be in the total wilderness like in other hiking adventures but the natural beauty is just spectacular and we’ll have wonderful time among chamois, ibexes and marmots: the original people of this marvellous Alpine environment.
Living an hiking holiday with Matterhorn and Monte Rosa “coming out” from the pass is an amazing experience. Sight this huge mountain from near is a dream for those who enjoy the mountain. We will really enjoy one of the more fantastic views in the last day when we’ll climb the Gran Tourmaline, at more than 3300 meters of altitude. From there we’ll have most probably the most amazing perspective of the Monte Rosa Glaciers and the famous Matterhorn peak. You will certainly not forget easily the feelings this hiking holiday will give you.
It is possible to arrange a different difficulty and duration of this hike. This 5 days with degree 4/5 is only an example. If you want different variety of hike but always in this area we can arrange longer or shorter trekking walks but also make it harder or softer. Please feel free to contact us for any kind of questions or requests. We’ll sleep one night in unguarded hut and the rest in proper shelters. Also this option can be changed at your preference.
Overnight staying detail:
Three nights in a shelter and one night in unguarded hut. Shelters are opened in summer only (June-September). In the other periods all the hut are unguarded and the cost of the hike will be lower.

We discovered the Italian Alps together with Roberto this summer.. When we first contacted Roberto, he listened to our wishes and invented a special hiking tour for us: at the end the difficulty level was right, we saw beautiful fortresses and fascinating monasteries of the Susa Valley. and we did a very beautiful trekking with stunning views of the west Alps!!! During these days we discovered together also some typical dishes from Piedmont ..it was a great experience! Thank you Roby :))) We hope to come back next year!
