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

guide profile img

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!!!
