Description

I invite you to join me in a challenging trek through the Haute Route from Verbier to Zermatt, in Switzerland! We will follow the trail of the famous skiing route, but enjoying the nice summer weather instead.

Most important, we will hike along glaciers and summits known all over the world! Also, we will even have the opportunity to see the Matterhorn, one of the highest summits in the Alps! Besides, we will enjoy the view of the Grand Combin Massif, Dent Blanche, Pigne D’Arolla, Bishorn, Weisshorn, and others.

We will begin our hike in Verbier, a village located in the canton of Valais, south-western Switzerland. It’s a popular ski area and holiday resort. It’s well known as one of the top off-piste resorts in the world. But now, we’re going to visit this beautiful city in summer!

And after six amazing days of trekking through huts and villages, our Haute Route will end with a delicious dinner and a well-deserved rest in the Swiss city of Zermatt.  We will spend a night there and get back on the seventh day.

So if you are interested in this fantastic hike along the Haute Route, contact me and I’ll give you more details! We can plan it together and spend 7 amazing days next summer!

Also, I offer a great hiking tour around Lake Como and Switzerland. Check it out!

About the guide

My name is Elisabetta but everyone calls me Betty. I'm Italian but based in Lugano Ticino, in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. I graduated in Environmental Science. Besides Italian, which is my native language, I also speak English and German.

I felt in love with the mountains as a child, during my first experience in the snow and tree climbing in my Grandpa's garden. Now many years have gone by, but my passion is still as strong!

I covered many trails and paths in the Alps as Monviso Ring, Monte Rosa Trek, Bernina Trek, Altavia n1 Dolomiti...

I've been to Patagonia (Hielo Continental Sur), Tanzania (Kilimanjaro 5985m), Nepal (Khumbu Valley), Bulgaria (Rodope), Canada (Quebec's Parks), Morocco (Toubkal 4167m), Spain (Sierra Nevada Mulhacen 3479m), Ireland (Carrantuohill 1.39m & Kerry Ring), Norway (Tromso), Mt. Elbrus (5642m) so far….

Since 2010 I’m an UIMLA Mountain Leader now joint to the Swiss organization ASAM and Nordic Walking instructor. I propose daily and weekly hiking tours between Como (Italy) and Lugano (Switzerland) and in the central part of the Alps from San Gottardo (CH) to Stelvio pass. Especially in Graübunden – Engadin (CH) and Valtellina (I).

No matter the season, any time of the year is good for hiking and exploring, so let’s do it together!!!

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
