Tour of the Matterhorn North

Walk the North section of the Tour of the Matterhorn through Switzerland on this self-guided inn to inn trek. This demanding long–distance hike circumnavigates the famous peak, offering superb mountain views, as well as an insight into the two distinct regions that surround it; the German speaking Mattertal and French speaking Val d’Anniviers.

This is a tough and adventurous trek, but for fans of the Alps, it could not be more rewarding. Hike through alpine meadows, on rocky paths and over suspension bridges. You will be rewarded with brilliant views at every corner. 

Relax at the end of the day in atmospheric mountain hotels and huts, and experience the camaraderie that an Alpine trek has to offer. Chat to walkers from all over the world over a beer, swapping stories and advice from the
