Most Iconic And Dramatic Mountain In The Swiss Alps

The Mat­ter­horn is the most rec­og­niz­able and dra­mat­ic moun­tain in the Swiss Alps. It’s clas­sic shape pulls in even non-climbers, the allure of the sum­mit too much to ignore. But, for would-be climbers, it’s dra­mat­ic slopes actu­al­ly offer rea­son­able ter­rain for inter­me­di­ate lev­el moun­taineers. With prop­er expe­ri­ence and good fit­ness, the sum­mit is attain­able for moti­vat­ed climbers. The climb offers incred­i­ble scenery, the lux­u­ry of well-main­tained huts, and fab­u­lous food – mak­ing this adven­ture into what we like to call a climb­ing hol­i­day,” on one of the world’s most rec­og­niz­able peaks.

Flight Information

Unlike most Moun­tain Mad­ness inter­na­tion­al trip itin­er­aries, which include trav­el time to and from your des­ti­na­tion, our Alps sched­ules begin on the first day of ser­vice in country.

You will need to stay at a hotel or hos­tel of your choice dur­ing the trip and need to make these arrange­ments through your trav­el agent or on your own. Moun­tain Mad­ness will reserve huts for your climb, but you will be respon­si­ble to pay for them upon arrival to the hut.
