Join this beautiful and exciting long-distance trek around Monte Rosa!
Located in the Pennine Alps between Switzerland and Italy, the Monte Rosa Massif is a beautiful place to enjoy hiking and trekking. On this 10-day trip, we’ll be able to experience stunning views of the Swiss Alps and the Matterhorn from the Teodulo pass. The hike will also gives us the benefit of appreciating a road full of pine forests, hidden valleys, waterfalls, colossal alpine peaks, high passes and glaciers. Some of the views will also include the Weissmies (4023m) and the Rimpfischhorn (4198).
The route around Monte Rosa is one of the most amazing and demanding long-distance treks in all Europe. This is why I recommend this trip to participants with a high level of fitness and experience. Some of the days include long treks in high altitudes and hikes between 4 and 8 hours. I am happy to advise you if you need to decide whether this trip is for you.
We’ll start and end our tip in the charming village of Saas Grund. Some of the nights will be spent in refuges and hotels, accessing private rooms whenever possible, located in breathtaking locations. We’ll also get to sleep in the iconic mountain town of Zermatt.

Emma is a very humble guide in a good way. Always in a good mood full of laughter who puts safety first and in for a good story about her previous adventures. We enjoyed her company a lot! Thanks Emma we had a wonderful time. Greetings Frank
Excellent start for us in snow shoeing with Phil our guide who kept things nice and easy - an enjoyable activity to redo.
Emma was very easy to communicate with (once we we able e in the same time zone, of course!). Our guide Phil was fabulous. Thanks to all.
We booked 3 full days of private showshoeing in Chamonix. Emma Jack was very responsive to our inquiry during booking and our emails leading up to our trip. We were paired with a local guide, Sebastian, who was very knowledgeable about the Chamonix area and picked the perfect spots for us to snowshoe each day based on the weather and snowfall accumulation. I highly recommend booking your trip with Emma Jack and would use her again if we return.
We had fun on that day!! The sun was shining all the way the there’s a lot of snow ? my kids enjoy the trip. All of the arrangement up to the guide is very professional handled & we enjoy the company..and will definitely booked with explore share again..keep up the good work guys!! ?
