Description

Explore the iconic Haute Route across the three Alpine countries: Switzerland, Italy and France. Try a new holiday destination and enjoy these exciting and beautiful ski slopes.

As for the itinerary we’ll meet at Zermatt. From there, we’ll descend and climb up to the Schönbielhütte at 3.694 meters. That evening, we’ll relax with views from the Matterhorn.

Day 2 will be spent climbing the magnificent Tête blanche glacier at 3.724 meters. We’ll then descend to Arolla and spend the night in a hotel. The following day, we’ll take a lift to climb over the Pas de Chèvres (2.855m) towards the Cab des Dix (2.928m). We can even climb the la Luette (3.548m) if the group is interested.

On the fourth day, we’ll climb the Glacier du Cheillon to the Col de la Serpentine (3.542m). The descents from there are unforgettable! On day 5, we’ll climb over the Fenêtre Durand (2.797m) and savor a long descent into the Valpelline. On our last day, we’ll relish in glacier summits and fascinating descents into Chamonix.

This trip implies 5-6 hours of ascents per day and, most days, we’ll need to take a backpack with us. So be sure to have a strong fitness condition.

Mountain Guide

As a child, I spent my summer in the Alps and that is where my passion for the mountains was born. I became a certified mountain guide in the year 2000. I specialize in rock climbing, skiing and snowboarding. For me, it is a great pleasure to share my knowledge of the mountains with my clients and to help them improve. During my free time, I like to go hiking and snowboarding with my wife and my 3 children.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
