Summit 4000m peaks across the Swiss and Italian Alps, hiking from hut-to-hut and learning vital skills to move safely through alpine terrain

Zu diesem Event

Day 1: Meet Your Guide

You'll meet your UIAGM Mountain Guide, and the rest of the team in Zermatt at 9 am for a safety briefing and equipment check. You'll then take the cable car up to Trocknersteg, where you'll begin your glacier training. Your guide will literally show you the ropes, as you go over vital mountaineering skills such as; crampon use (spikes on your feet), ice axes, and rope work.

* The itinerary for this trip will be adapted and changed where weather and snow conditions dictate.

Day 2: Summit Breithorn (4,200m)

Beginning with the cable car to the start of your hike, you'll put your mountaineering skills into good practice with an ascent of the Breithorn (4164m). Through the afternoon, you'll traverse the glacier to the Val d’Ayas hut. Perched on the side of a wonderful alpine glacier, this is your home for the night.

Day 3: Crossing the Italian border

Today will see you descending across the Italian border into Staffal. Be sure to have your camera at the ready for this stunning terrain. You will refuel at the restaurant before the ascent to the Refugio Grabiet Hut.

Day 4: Ascend Pyramid Vincent (4,215m)

In the morning you'll hike well above the snow line to the Gnifetti Refuge. This remote mountain hut boasts some of the most spectacular views overlooking the Italian and Swiss Alps. In the afternoon you'll have the option of ascending Pyramid Vincent (4215m). If you prefer, you can spend some time relaxing in the hut.

Day 5: Summit Lisjoch (4,152m)

After a hearty breakfast, you'll head for the summit pass of Lisjoch. Your glacier crossing skills will be put to the test as you weave through the crevices of the Grenz glacier, down to the Monte Rosa hut. This is used as a base for the ascent of the tallest mountain in Switzerland.

Day 6: Depart home

Today is all about the return to Zermatt. After a leisurely breakfast in the hut, you will descend to the Rotenboden train station. From here you will take the traditional train back to Zermatt for celebrations. It is possible to fly out that evening or enjoy another evening in Zermatt.
