The Walkers Haute Route was originally completed as a summer mountaineering route by the Alpine Club of Great Britain. Over time the Walkers Haute Route has been adapted following a lower level route, making it more accessible for summer trekking. Approximately 180km in length, this stunning hiking trail crosses 11 high mountain passes with 12,000m of ascent through France and Switzerland. An Haute Route walking holiday makes for a fabulous challenge.

The hiking trail is generally walked from Chamonix to Zermatt travelling in an easterly direction through France & Switzerland. Having hiked this trail many times, in all weathers, we have put together a selection of guided and self guided treks that we know work well. The full Walkers Haute Route incorporates 11 days in total and the walk takes you through the most stunning - and dramatically different environments each day. For those who don't quite have the time to devote to the full Walkers Haute Route we have the 'Best of' 8 day trek which focuses on the trek highlights. We also offer the Westerly section of this iconic hiking tail, from Chamonix to Zinal or the Easterly section from Arolla to Zermatt.

Mont Blanc Treks offer guided and self-guided treks throughout the summer, take a look at our guided and self guided itineraries and find one to suit you, or contact our team in Chamonix to plan a personalised walking holiday for you. If trekking self guided all of our hiking itineraries can be tailor made to suit your needs, with changes to the route and additional of rest days if needed. These walking holidays are perfect for solo travellers and group holidays alike.

See our Video and Photo Gallery for day by day visual information of the terrain and the views you will encounter and get in touch for further information, we would love to share our passion and wealth of knowledge with you. You can even check out a blog from our competition winner of 2019 - Ian shared with us his day-by-day account of his preparation for and journey of one of the top 10 treks of the world.
