Matterhorn

Walkers Haute Route

Trek the Walker’s Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt. Regularly voted as one of the world’s top walks the journey from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn on the Walker’s Haute Route is filled with breath-taking mountain panoramas, challenging mountain passes and Alpine scenes lifted straight from a storybook. The Walker’s Haute Route is a variation of the original Haute Route following alpine trails below 3000m and is a non-technical although a demanding high-level walk, which explores the best of the Pennine Alps between Chamonix and Zermatt.
