Owner description: The Breithorn (4,164 m), with its many summits, is a strong, glaciered mountain crest. The normal climb is considered as one of the easiest routes for climbing a four-thousand metre mountain. This tour is a perfect way to get a sense of high Alpine air for the first time but only for surefooted and experienced mountain hikers accompanied by a mountain guide. The tour includes climbing a glaciated four thousand-metre peak, and this is not to be underestimated. In the early morning, one takes the aerial tramway to Matterhorn glacier paradise at 3,883 m. The climb to the top and the descent afterwards lasts about three hours depending on the conditions. Even though the climb is not dizzying, the tour does offer a high Alpine mountain experience where one can live out the feeling of having one’s head already in outer space. •Snow tour on the glacier •The overall difficulty of the tour is given as “L” (easy) •A mountain guide is recommended •Warning: glacier crevasses

Often overlooked, but still mighty and awe-inspiring. You can get close to the top by taking the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise lifts upto Klien Matterhorn. Snow covered all year round, great views and skiing even in summer.
