A classic one week walking holiday adventure in the Alps from Chamonix in France to Zermatt in Switzerland. Continuing our theme of 'The Best Of' Alpine walking routes, we now offer the classic walker's route from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn within a 9-day holiday. Using short transfers to by-pass the least interesting sections of this classic route and by avoiding the technical section of the Europaveg, we have made this classic 'Walker's Haute Route' available to non-alpinists who wish to trek amongst incredibly beautiful Alpine scenery within a week's leave. This superb alpine trekking holiday takes a linear route across the spine of the European Alps and links together the famous mountaineering towns of Chamonix and Zermatt. Trekking from France into the beautiful Swiss canton of Valais, passing spectacularly beneath 10 of the 12 highest peaks in the Alps, we are treated to amazing views of Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. Traversing several high and challenging passes, we enjoy mountain walking in the Alps at its most delightful. Lower down, we pass through verdant Alpine valleys with cascading streams, pretty hamlets and flower-strewn meadows. Overnight accommodation on this great trekking holiday adventure in the Alps is provided in a variety of small hotels, atmospheric gites and spectacularly located Alpine mountain refuges. Led by English guides and fully supported, with access to luggage on all but 2 nights, this holiday offers nothing less than the best of the best in the Alps.
