Classic alpine walking holiday along the Haute Route from Chamonix in France to Zermatt in Switzerland. Taking a dramatic and uncompromising line to explore the heart of the European Alps, this ultra-classic Alpine walking adventure links Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. By including a single short vehicle transfer from Champex to Mauvoisin we can complete this challenging high altitude trek in 6 days. Expert guidance is essential, on a trekking route that crosses several high and testing passes and numerous glaciers. During the course of our trek along the Haute Route, there is time to practice the fundamentals of mountaineering and the skills required for safe walking on glaciated terrain (ice-axe and crampons required). From the outset of the trekking, at our comfortable French Alps chalet base in the Chamonix Valley, to our arrival at the famously picturesque ski-town of Zermatt in the Swiss Alps, we accumulate more than 8000m/26000ft. of ascent and descent. Offering a blend of amazing scenery and overnight stops at some of the very best Alpine refuges, this one week Haute Route trekking holiday in the Alps of France and Switzerland ranks amongst the world's great mountain walks.

Is this holiday for you?

This is real mountain travel, following good trails to the snowline and also involving sections of scrambling, snow-slope climbing and glacier travel, where ropes, crampons and an ice-axe will be used. We average 6 to 8 hours walking each day, with some longer days and tough climbs. En route, we will stay in mountain huts which are inaccessible by vehicle and this means that group members will carry all of their personal equipment throughout the trip. With careful planning, and given the fact that sleeping bags and camping mats are not carried, the total weight of your rucksack can be pared down to around 8 kg / 18lbs.
