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 along huts and villages, our Haute Route will end with a deliciousy 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 8-day rock climbing program in Kalymnos, Greece. Check it out!
