Description

Join me on this week-long famous glacier traverse on the Haute Route Zermatt-Chamonix!

The Haute Route Zermatt Chamonix is one of the most iconic mountain traverses in the Alps. This route stretches from the French-speaking Swiss Alpine region (Zermatt) —home to the famous Matterhorn mountain— to the French Alps (Chamonix).

On this 7 day trip we will stay at different mountain huts. On the route, we’ll hike up on glaciated mountains and go through all kinds of terrain. You should be ready for about 6-8 hours of hiking per day.

This is a private trip. I can take a group of up to 4 people, making it a great adventure to do solo or in the company of loved ones!

Request to book this trip if you have been itching to do the Haute Route Zermatt-Chamonix!

Very user friendly platform with timely responses from Explore Share representatives. The trip itself with Tom from Alps Adventures was awesome and ensure that we had an experience that was 100% what we wanted. Recommend both the platform and the guide. Thanks to all for arranging and delivering so well.

I had am amazing time during the 1-day off-piste training course at Hoch-Ybrig. Urs, our main mountain guide, was very helpful in answering my queries before the course, and Lupe from explore-share was helpful in selecting the course. We had 3 groups under Urs, Mario and Patrick, and I was in the group with Patrick. He gave us a lot of nice tips and individualized video analysis. He made a special effort to convey everything in English, since I don't know German. All the participants were very helpful and friendly too! The course is good value for money as skis are included for the weekend in the course price.
