Monte Rosa Massif: Eleven four-thousanders with a view

Italy - Europe

Monte Rosa, Dufourspitze - Dufourspitze, Monte Rosa 4000er
06.09 - 10.09.2020
For good reason, this week is one of the most popular weeks in our offer! Thanks to the high-altitude Italian huts, our summit ascents in this unique glacier world are considerably shortened. And spending the night in the highest hut in the Alps, the Capanna Margherita, will be an unforgettable experience!
It is a particularly exalted feeling to be on the Monte Rosa massif. Nowhere in the Alps are the huts higher, the 4000s so numerous and the pasta and espresso so good! A visit to this beautiful region belongs in every tour book :-)

Your benefits and our services at a glance:

- impressive transgressions and prospects
- 3 guests per guide for maximum safety
- Experience Capanna Margherita, 4554 m
