Full description

Mountaineering is a discipline full of emotions. The height, the nature, the vivid colours and the breathtaking views are just some of the many surprises that a high mountain ascent can bring. If you are new to this type of experience, you are in the right place!

The ascent to Mount Breithorn, on the Monte Rosa Massif in the Aosta Valley, is an outing dedicated to all those who want to approach the world of mountaineering and experience the sensation of being at an altitude of more than 4,000 metres.

Under the watchful eye of a certified mountain guide, you will reach the summit in total safety and the satisfaction of having made it will be accompanied by one of the most incredible panoramas you have ever seen. Ready to go?

What we will do

We will meet at 8 a.m. in Cervinia, at the departure point of the Plateau Rosa cable car. From here, together with the guide, we will ascend to the Cervino Guide hut where we will have time for breakfast. After that, we will have a short briefing in which we will be given the technical basics and safety instructions, prepare ourequipment and be ready to set off.

The route begins immediately in a snowy environment, so it will be necessary to use crampons from the start. After about an hour's walk, we will rope up to continue the ascent on the glacier that leads to the beautiful, wide final ridge to the summit at an altitude of 4,164 metres.

The ascent involves an altitude difference of 700 metres. Once at the summit, we will descend by the same route. The activity takes about 6 hours, of which 3 will be needed to complete the progression on ice. Technically, the ascent is also suitable for those who are new to mountaineering, but are minimally trained in walking in the mountains.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an intermediate level and is open to everyone who is in good physical condition and does not suffer from any illnesses incompatible with high altitude. The minimum age to participate is 16.
