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 walkers' route from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn within an 8 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 'Walkers' 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 small 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 it's 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 two nights, this holiday offers nothing less than the best of the best in the Alps.
Is this holiday for you?
This is a classic Alpine walking route on good trails. The average distance covered each day is around 16 kilometres (10 miles) and there is a considerable amount of ascent and descent, with several passes close to 3000 metres (9840 feet). Regular hillwalkers will find this trek to be well within their capabilities. This holiday is fully supported and clients will not be required to carry sleeping bags or significant amounts of personal gear other than what is required for the day's hike. There are a total of two nights spent in mountain huts where there is no access to trek bags. Otherwise group members will have access to their main luggage on each evening.
