About the tour

Reach the highest peak in Switzerland, Dufourspitze, standing at 4,634 meters! This challenging two-day climb takes you through glacial terrain with crevasses and steep slopes, offering breathtaking views along the way. As you approach the summit, the path narrows, adding an extra layer of challenge. With experienced guides, you will safely navigate these conditions and reach the summit, making this a memorable adventure.

This tour requires a high level of fitness and previous mountaineering experience. Be prepared for a long and strenuous climb with challenging conditions, and remember to bring your own technical equipment. Starting from Zermatt, you will hike to the Monte Rosa Hut on the first day, setting the stage for the ascent to Dufourspitze on the second day.
