Matterhorn Adventure Holidays
Matterhorn adventure holidays are usually fairly tough and require some explicite experience before being undertaken. See the tripnotes of the tours below to see if you match the requirements of these trips. Our travel experts are able to advise you on anything not included in the trip notes.
The Matterhorn has four faces, facing the four compass points, the north face overlooking the Zmutt Valley, the south face Breuil-Cervinia, the east and west faces looking towards the Gornergrat and the Dent d'Hérens, respectively, with the north and south faces meeting to form a short east-west summit ridge. The faces are steep, and only small patches of snow and ice cling to them; regular avalanches send the snow down to accumulate on the glaciers at the base of each face. The Hörnli ridge of the northeast (in the centre of the view from Zermatt) is the usual climbing route.
