Monte Rosa and Matterhorn

Big Mountains, huge Glaciers – Discover the Giants of the Alps

Monte Rosa massif has the second highest peak of the whole Alps in Dufur Peak at 4634 meters and has one of the most extense glaciers of the Alps. The landscape in the Monte Rosa and Matterhorn Hiking Area are gorgeous and pretty unique. Matterhorn is maybe the most famous mountain of the world and the nearby Monte Rosa glaciers make the landscape just stunning.

The area is well known and consequently it is not the paradise for wildlifeand people willing to enjoy the mountain by yourself. On the other hand the services are very advanced and it is possible to arrange inn-to-inn hikes with nice accomodation in the villages in the middle of the mountains at more than 1800 meters of altitude.

Even in winter this area is a nice choice as there are many snowshoes tracks and shelter opened all year long. In August using the unguarded hut is not advisable as they will be possibly full. in case you want to visit this area in summer we will also bring Ferrino Tents with us.

Nevertheless they worth the visit and if you have the chance to come hiking in a Spring or Autumn you’ll enjoy the places with less people and more wildife. As 4K Summit you can reach several 4000 meters peak with our partner of Climbing-Alps and we can organize the preparation and the summit of Capanna Margerita the highest Shelter of Europe.

Geography

The Monte Rosa and Matterhorn Area is one of the more rich in terms of ice formations all over the Alps and not only in the Italian Alps. The Monte Rosa and Matterhorn hiking area is located at the border of Italy and Switzerland and it has most famous peaks of the Alps. The paths are pretty well marked and even in winter there are few options here. The Areas is north-west from Torino and the trip to this mountain area is from 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours. The main valleys are the Gressoney Valley, Ayas Valley and Valtournanche and in the Hikes described in this Trekking Alps website you’ll find also trekking some other smaller valleys, less known and maybe even more enjoyable for trekking and mountain Hiking.

Wildlife

Matterhorn and Monte Rosa Hiking Area are not the ideal place for Wildlife as Cervinia and not only has been iper antropized in the last 20 years. Wildlife consequently is been moving away from this area as a lot of people are spending their mountain holidays here. Near There is less space in the mountains for the animals than in other places and hiking areas of the Alps. The general rule in the Alps is that the more the area is famous the less is good for spotting animals. In the Italian Alps there are not so much forests and big land like in other part of the world like Canada or Himalaya. Nevertheless all the typical Alpine animals can be spotted but not so easily: Ibex, the Chamois, the Marmot, the Fox and the Eagle. The area is full of cable cars used also in summer for tourists and downhill bikers during the summer.

Monte Rosa and Matterhorn Area Testimonials

    Hikes in Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso
    Roberto was a thoughtful, organized, and kind guide, and arranged a great trip for our small group of family and friends. The weather and scenery were fantastic, and the refugios (mountain B and Bs, in effect) in the Monte Rosa area were truly excellent. Highly recommended! Many thanks to Roberto for a great time.
