  • Complete a ski tour of the Haute Route, a mountaineering classic
  • Take in beautiful high alpine scenery

The Haute Route via ski tour is one experience you do not want to miss. Come along with me on this adventure-packed 7-day ski tour. We’ll climb mountains, ski down pristine slopes and experience the natural beauty of the Alps.

The route covers 180km of breathtaking alpine scenery from glaciers to alpine meadows. This is a classic route that Mountaineers have been undertaking since the 19th century. On this trip, we’ll be completing it on our skis.

We’ll start out from Chamonix and tour for 7 days. On the way, we’ll pass mountains like the Rosa Blanche and Pigne d’Arolla. We’ll be up high the entire time, stopping to spend our nights in alpine huts. Our epic journey will end in Zermatt, Switzerland with awesome views of the iconic Matterhorn.

This route can be challenging in parts but the satisfaction you’ll get from completing it will outweigh any difficulty. Plus, the views of the dramatic mountainous terrain are second to none.

Don’t wait, request to book now and I can guarantee that you’ll enjoy the experience of a lifetime.

If you’re interested in a mountaineering trip that you can do in a day, you should definitely take a look at my one-day climb of Mont Blanc.

About the guide

I am an IFMGA mountain guide living in Cyprus. I have a passion for exploring the mountains since I was child. Kyperounda, the town where I was born and raised, was my first playground, the place where I started practising different outdoor activities.

First I learnt skiing. Then, I started training and taking part in races and competitions, traveling extensively in Europe. As I am very curious, I kept trying all kinds of sports until I discovered climbing and all its exciting possibilities.

I also developed both my academic and my practical skills in the university, where I studied Outdoor Studies and Sport Science. During that time, I obtained qualifications as a Mountain Leader and a Climber.

Teaching other people is one of the things I like the most. I find a deep joy in helping others to enjoy the mountains as much as I do.

The experience of all these years as well as my technical skills, have taken me closer to my goal: becoming an IFMGA mountain guide.

Kyriakos Rossidis is a fantastic touring and skiing guide. Our safety and well-being was his top concern. Extremely competent and helpful with equipment and all arrangements with huts, etc. Also great company — low-key, friendly, sense of humor. Could not ask for a better guide.
