Also known as the “Haute Route”, this beautiful hut to hut walk links Chamonix, home of the mythical Mont Blanc with Zermatt, home of the Matterhorn in Switzerland.
The route traverses the highest peaks in the Alps as well as glacial valleys, alpine meadows and pretty villages. So that, this 6-day program promises you incredible and breathtaking views of the surrounding landscapes.
The only requirement for being part of this trip is to be in a good physical condition, with experience practicing hiking regularly.
The Haute Route is one of the best hikes in the world. So, it is an important objective for passionate hikers.
Further, it traverses alpine valleys, glaciers, lakes and villages combining not only the natural beauty but also the culture of both regions: France and Switzerland.
The hiking links two of the most important and iconic summits of Europe: Mont Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps; and the Matterhorn with its amazing beauty.
What is more, the Haute Route is a challenging hike but also a comfortable route.
And finally, an excellent guiding by an IFMGA certified mountain guide.

I had a great time climbing with Sebastien. He modified the trip because of the weather and was able to find dry rock on a wet day. Throughout the trip Sebastien not only provided plenty of climbing but also helped me on skills that I wanted to improve on.
Sebastien was a great guide! Thank you :)
Sebastien was a fantastic guide, I had a great time and learned a lot. I would 100% use him again as a guide and the climbing / route choices were great as well

Super semaine avec Sébastien et Guillaume. Très partant pour refaire un stage!!!
Unforgettable experience, thanks to our guide Sebastien we reached the summit, he prepared us not only with the required skills also with the psychological strength for such an emblematic summit. Also we want to thank Gauthier (from Explore-Share) for his help preparing this expedition.
It was my first ski touring experience in high montainous areas: it was just unique thanks notably to the way Sébastien managed us in a very professional way. He inspired confidence in our group while this was the very first time for three among us. Congrats.
Nous avons passé trois jours entre Chamonix et La Clusaz, quelques classiques dans les aiguilles rouges et une belle journée au début du massif des Aravis. Nous avons particulièrement apprecié Sébastien pour ces choix en rapport avec notre niveau, sa patience, sa pédagogie juste quand il faut, pro et sympathique,de très bons moments en montagne, sportifs et conviviaux.
Thanks a lot Sebastien for helping us in getting ready to ascent the Mont Blanc and for letting us discover the incredible Vallée Blanche. It has been an unique experience that we will probably never forget. I hope we can climb an other mountain soon together. Take care. Gauthier
Sebastien was very professional in guiding us to the top of Mont Blanc! Great atmosphere within the group thanks to his great character. I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to clim the Mont Blanc, no matter his level. Thanks again, Sebastien!
Sébastien taught us all the bases of glacier climbing. We spent nice days with him in the Vallée Blanche and Mont-Blanc area. He was very patient and pedagogue. Thanks to him we could discover great little summit close to Aiguille du Midi!
