From the 14th to the 17th of April 2022

Beautiful loop tour departing from Tasch and arriving in Zermatt. During the 4 days we’ll can reach the top of 3 peaks over 4000 m: Alphubel m 4206 at first, then Rimpfishorn m 4199 and finally Stralhorn m 4190.

The location of this mountain range allows us to enjoy every day the amazing views of the surrounding peaks: ranging from Matterhorn to Monte Rosa, from Weisshorn to Dent Blanche. The daily uphill, always quite sustained, will be rewarded with great descents. On the last day the descent will be long about 3000 m down.

Private groups (min 4 pax) can choose different dates depending on their needs.
