Overview

Book
Classic walking holiday adventure trekking around Monte Rosa in the Swiss Alps. One of the finest long-distance trekking opportunities in Alpine Europe is the walking circuit of the huge, many-summitted massif of Monte Rosa (4634m) in the Swiss Alps. Starting out from the picturesque Alpine village of Saas Fee, our walking follows a clockwise direction, crossing from Switzerland then trekking into Italy and then back again. This undiscovered gem of a walking route around Monte Rosa keeps to the high ground as much as possible, close up beneath towering Alpine peaks, crossing airy passes and encountering snowfields and even walking over glaciers.

En route, there are stunning views of many of the big peaks of the Alps, such as the Dom (4545m) Weisshorn (4596m) and particularly memorable Matterhorn (4478m). This generally overlooked area is pure Alpine magic and a real trekking paradise, with its steep forested valleys, high meadows and crown of impressive snow-capped peaks. We follow good walking trails throughout and enjoy either comfortable mountain hut or hotel accommodation, including one night in the famous Alpine town of Zermatt.

Highlights

    • Crossing the Teodulo Pass in sight of the Matterhorn
    • Overnight in a succession of atmospheric Alpine refuges
    • Stunning Swiss Alps scenery and all meals included
    • One of Europe`s finest trekking holidays

The Guglielmina hut was a revelation. Wonderful food, amazing setting/views and great rooms. In general the mountain huts were clean, well maintained and had a good atmosphere, especially on the Itallian side. Lindsay was great. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. Without doubt the trip would not have been half as much fun without her. A wonderful trip, made all the better with a small, tight group and a great guide. Physically demanding and I am glad we prepared beforehand as it would have been very tough without it. Nothing to grumble about (apart from the cost of living in Switzerland!!) and would recommend to anyone with a good level of fitness and experience in the hills.

Although I am a regular walker this was my first experience of a trek. I thought that the guide was outstanding in all aspects, at all times, a real professional. She even organised the weather! Thank you so much. The experience of being in the mountains. Plus whilst walking up hill the profussion of flowers were a beautiful distraction! The remoteness was rather special too.All the accommodation was clean, and the hotels good. This was my first Hutting experience and I had feared the worst. However I enjoyed the experience all round.

The trip was hard, but we prepared well for it, and had a thoroughly great time. There was only 4 of us and we had a great laugh, which made the trip even better. One to recommend to any one with a good degree of fitness looking for an adventure in the Alps.

The guide was an inspirational leader with excellent rapport with the group. He and was willing to share his considerable expertise - we all learned much about the mountains, trekking and safety and were inspired to explore further in the future.I most enjoyed: The stunningly beautiful scenery, in particular on the way from Resy to Refugio Teodulo and on the Hohenweg, but every day had its special charms. The healthy exercise in crisp mountain air. The companionship of a like-minded group.

This trek was truly wonderful,with stunning scenery. Our guide was very friendly and great all round person. This is a harder walk than the tour of mont blanc which I did last year but much quieter. The refuges used were quite good,the hotels were very good especially at grachen. A truly great experience with some lovely people in the party.

Walkers considering this should be aware it is a step up in all senses from similarly graded Tour de Combins and Queyras; the walks have more ascent and descent and are steeper.Having said that path is always clear and walkable ; the huts are good; bunk beds or better with good food and views.Highlights were the views fom Europehutte and Resy hut and the walks to col de Theodule and the Walliser villages and generally being up high in stunning scenery.There is a swimming pool at hotel at end of Europaweg day. This is a challenging walk but well worth effort.
