The “Walkers Haute Route” regularly features in the World’s top ten 'must do' treks and it's not hard to understand why!
Truly a great challenge, the route takes you on a visually stunning journey between Europe’s two most iconic mountains – Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn as the trail passes by 10 of the 12 highest snow-capped peaks in the Alps, winding its way through glacial valleys, lush alpine meadows and enchanting picture-book villages. You walk through both the French and Swiss Alps, two distinct cultural regions with different languages, customs, food and architecture.
We are giving away this holiday because we are keen to understand things from your point of view. Why are you doing the trek? What are your fears, goals, aspirations? How will you prepare? We’d like to “follow” you before, during and after this epic adventure. We also realise that many people would love to take this “once in a lifetime” experience, but not everyone is able to..
Please remember, this route is not for the faint hearted! The daily height gain is substantial, the highest pass is at 9,800 ft (2964 m) and the overall accumulation over 11 days is in the region of 39370 ft (12,000m). Therefore you definitely have to be fit and ready for a challenge!
The vacation begins on the 6th August 2019, in Chamonix Mont-Blanc, France and finishes 11 days later in Zermatt in Switzerland. All food, accommodation and baggage transfers included, and of course our expert local guide, with a pre-selected itinerary so the that you can prepare and enjoy a completely hassle-free walking holiday, with a group of like-minded people. (It is important to know from the get-go that flights are the ONLY THING that are NOT included)
