Tour Description

Way above Zermatt, inaccessibly, isolated and with a convincing almost perfect shape: the Matterhorn, one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. If you want to climb her along the sharp line of the Hörnligrat, you should be fit and experienced. Efficient and easy climbing up to UIAA III+ ascending as well as descending, with and without crampons is required. But when reaching the summit, you will be overwhelmed by the stunning 360 degree view. All the strains of the climb are immediately forgotten. After a short rest at the summit, it’s time to gather strength and prepare yourself for the descent, because this is just as demanding as the ascent.
