Description

The Matterhorn valley in the Alps is one of the most famous and beautiful destinations in the entire world!

Join us and spend four incredibly scenic days exploring the valley on foot. Over the course of the trip, we will enjoy various incredible views, climb up a 3.000 meter high mountain and pass the famous Stellisee, the iconic lake beneath the Matterhorn. 

The fun begins after we’ve picked you up from the airport and driven to Randa. From here, we will hike on the Europa trail to  the famous Europahut, which sits at 2.000 meters above sea level and has lovely views of the surroundings. 

The following day, we will hike along the Europaweg to the Täschalp, crossing the 500-meter long Charles Kuonen suspension bridge – the longest in the world – in the morning, before hiking into the Täsch valley. Here, we will spend the night in another cosy mountain hut, enjoying views out over 3.000-meter high mountains and glaciers.

The third day, we will head out on a more serious adventure, departing  Täschalp and hiking toward Pfulwe peak (3.313 meters). We will begin by hiking up to Pfulwepass, with the option to continue on to the summit or not.

From both the pass and the summit, we will have great views out over the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa, among many other mountains. After taking in the view, we will hike down to the Stellisee, before ending our day in Zermatt.

On the fourth and final day of our trip, we will enjoy a nice hike along Edelweiss traverse, taking in some more great views before returning to Zermatt and transferring to the airport.

Happy Tracks came highly reccommended to our group. They did not disappoint. Raphael, Jack Anja & Rachel took great care and pride in providing the best hiking experience on the TMB.

Raphael organised a well planned 10 day TMB for us. We were a group of 5 and we had Ian as our guide. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. The hotels and refuge selection was good and we had excellent stay in all places. Our luggage transfer was professionally handled by Rachael along with providing us lunch packets for daily hike. Overall very professionally conducted trip by the Happy Track team.

I don’t usually write reviews, but I gladly do for this trip because it was fantastic! Great guide, fantastic tour! The accommodation is really basic, that is just something to be aware of. The only point to not give a 5 star trip rating is the fact that the group size being twice as large as was promised, it made for a 14 person mixed dormitory the first night- and thus no sleep.

5.00

We have hiked many places in the world--Kilimanjaro, Peru, the Himalayas, the Nepali coast, Yosemite, Mt. Whitney, the Sierras----and the Swiss Alps rival each of those with their own unique beauty! Raphael, the Happy Tracks owner, responded to all of our emails and requests promptly and thoroughly and worked diligently to solve issues as they arose, such as an injured guide and fellow trekkers who needed some route changes. The accommodations along the Haute Route were excellent--ranging from dormitory-style, to camping lodges, to beautiful hotels. Meals were typically great (even had rabbit one night, duck the next, and nothing beat the gourmet meal Anja prepared at the Le Peuty Refuge!). Our guide, Wendy, was likewise excellent and attentive and we learned a lot about Swiss flora and fauna along the way. The Haute Route is strenuous in terms of being able to hike long days, with very steep and long periods of ascent and descent (the Swiss are not big on switchbacks) and needing to have no fear of heights (luckily we both do not have that issue) because you need to be willing to walk along steep, exposed ledges (and not always with a cable). It was also helpful that we both had at least some bouldering and scrambling experience; conditions along this trail are subject to erosion and major detours due to the many landslides, rockslides, and avalanches. All that said, Wendy guided us through calmly and we were rewarded by incredible views and experiences. Can highly recommend Happy Tracks!
