We will conquer part of the Haute Route, an international alpine route through the Pennine Alps, which starts in Chamonix in France and reaches our destination in Zermatt, Switzerland.

Besides that, during this 6-day expedition in the Haute Route I will lead you to numerous summits of 4000 meters in the apotheosis known as the “Spaghetti Tour”.
