Description

Discover the incredible alpine scenery along the Walkers Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt.

This high-route trail carves through the French and Swiss Alps, along rocky passes and rural pastures.

We’ll trek past iconic giants such as Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn, as well as snow-capped peaks, glaciers, high meadows and deep valleys.

The direction of travel leads us through deep cultural diversity in the mountainside, where you’ll witness distinct languages and architecture.

Resting at the borders of Italy and Switzerland, the French resort area of Chamonix is at the foot of Mont Blanc, the largest in Western Europe. This world-famous high mountain area is a mountaineering paradise that offers incredible views of the surround peaks.

The Swiss town of Zermatt is known throughout the world for its skiing slopes, as well as lying at the foot of the Matterhorn, possibly for world’s most iconic and conspicuous mountain peak.

Due to the length of this 7-day trek, the level is challenging and potential participants are expected to have a good level of fitness and stamina in order to fully appreciate and enjoy the trip.

The difficulty of the terrain is often underestimated, which includes extremely rocky and steep ground.

About the guide

Ten years ago, my lifelong passion for exploring the natural world led me to become a mountain guide.

I have trekked, climbed and skied all around the world. Throughout my travels, I have crafted tour itineraries in some of the most beautiful and diverse places on the planet.

All of my trips are born out of a pure love for the outdoors. I offer trekking, climbing and skiing tours throughout the Alps and in the Himalayas. I lead tours on both classic and off the beaten path routes to some of the highest peaks on Earth.

Whatever route you choose, you can count on an unforgettable journey into the mountains.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
