Mount Rosa Crossing

Due to the amount of ups and downs, we like to call it the 'Spaghetti Tour'!

A unique and spectacular loop-crossing, allowing to climb several 4000m peaks in a few days, lodging in some of the most suggestive huts in Europe.

€ 1000


6 days




Min. 1 max. 2


from June to September

The program we offer unfolds on long distance hikes with remarkable altitude changes, predominantly at high altitudes. Although this traverse is not technically demanding, it requires good physical condition, training and sure footing on exposed ridges.
