Summit of the Matterhorn - Faisal and Ervin
The Matterhorn is probably the most recognised mountain in the world, due to its unique triangular shape. The mountain is fairly difficult to ascend by any route, and was one of the last Alpine 4000ers to be climbed. The classic routes up the mountain are the Hörnli Aréte from Zermatt, and Lion Ridge from Cervinia.

Notes: The scheduled standard course assumes 1:2 guiding for the first 3 days. Note that is there is just one person on a course, less 1:1 guiding days can be offered, however accommodation will be provided for the whole week, and guiding options and locations will be discussed with you within the budget paid.
1:1 upgrade: Have you thought of upgrading to a 1:1 course throughout? Some clients prefer this strategy to provide even more flexibility during the week, and to allow them to move on all routes, at a more tailored pace. One key advantage is that the Matterhorn itself could even be climbed over a three day period, with two nights in huts on the mountain (n.b. only one night is included as per inclusions above). The 1:1 guiding ratio for the five days, with the same other inclusions as the standard course, costs £2799.
