Description

Join me on this incredible 3-day hike along a spectacular balcony route, from Saas Fee to Zermatt. We will enjoy the most breathtaking scenery, with the view of the most beautiful 4000m peaks in the Alps, and finish at the foot of the Matterhorn, after walking on the longest suspension bridge in the world!

This beautiful and demanding hike will also give us the chance to observe the wild life and natural beauty of the Alps. Along the way we may encounter ibex, marmots or some chamois.

We will meet in Saas-Fee, the main village in the Saas Valley, in the canton of Valais. We begin our hike on a balcony path, taking in the most stunning views of the Alps during this 3-day tour. On the first day, at the end of the walk, a lift will take us to the village of Grächen, where we spend the night.

On the second day of our tour, we transfer to Gasenried. The climb here is tough. We spend this night in a room with several beds at the Europa Hut. Finally, on the third day, we cross the longest suspension bridge in the world! You need a good head for heights for this great crossing.

The fascinating Mattherhorn or Cervino awaits us in the beautiful city of Zermatt. We finish our tour with a well deserved aperitif.
