Day 1: Breithorn summit climb
Meet with your guide in Zermatt in the morning for equipment check and briefing. You then jump on the cable car to the top of the Klein Matterhorn. From here, your climb starts in ernest. A spectacular snow/glacier walk takes you to the summit ridge and the final ascent to the summit of the Breithorn. You'll use the same route for your descend back to Zermatt.
Note: The one day itinerary above is only suitable if you arrive acclimatised, for instance if you have just completed our Walker's Haute Route Trek. If you are not already acclimatised, we highly recommend that you add a day or two of trekking or mountaineering with one of our guides prior to the Breithorn Climb.
Suitable for acclimatised and experienced trekkers with an adventurous spirit. No previous mountaineering or climbing experience is necessary.
