New Trek for 2023 Atlas Mountains, Morocco

Walker's Haute Route

Trek from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn

The Walkers Haute Route is a spectacular hike from Chamonix to Zermatt which connects 2 iconic peaks - the mighty Mont Blanc in France and the Matterhorn in Switzerland. The Haute Route is also a trek of contrasts: a world of glaciers and towering, snow-capped peaks, which also meanders through lush green valleys, alpine meadows and enchanting picture-book villages. You walk through the centre of both the French and Swiss Alps, two distinct cultural regions with different languages, customs, food and architecture.

Regularly voted one of the top 10 treks in the world and approximately 112 miles (180km) in length, the Walkers haute Route is in fact a network of hiking trails through France and Switzerland, traversing the Pennine Alps and crossing 11 spectacular high mountain passes and glacial valleys, with 12,000m of ascent – an exciting challenge for any mountain lover!

Choose from a selection of guided and self-guided treks that offer the best of the Walkers Haute Route (often considered the most scenic trek in Europe). The full route from Chamonix to Zermatt incorporates 11 days walking through the most stunning - and dramatically different environments each day. We also offer the 'Best of' 8-day trek which focuses on the trek highlights in the French and Swiss Alps. Or you can choose to walk the route in sections, either Westerly (from Chamonix to Zinal) or Easterly from Arolla to Zermatt.

Due to its elevation the season starts late, but you can walk well into September. Take a look at our guided and self guided Walkers Haute Route itineraries that are perfect for solo travellers and group holidays alike. Or contact our team in Chamonix to plan your personalised walking holiday, with changes to the route or additional rest days if needed.

Our Video and Photo Gallery give you day by day visual information of the terrain and the magnificent views. You can even check out a blog from our competition winner of 2019 as Ian shared with us his day-by-day account of his preparation for his journey through the Swiss and French Alps as well as the triumphs of his trek of the Walkers Haute Route.
