Overview

Book
This is an alpine glacier trekking holiday along the Haute Route from Chamonix in France to Zermatt in Switzerland, taking in the high glacier crossings of the longer Classic Haute Route and culminating in an ascent of the 4,000-metre Breithorn. In only 6 days this route takes a dramatic and uncompromising line through the heart of the European Alps from Chamonix at the foot of Mont Blanc to Zermatt below the Matterhorn. By including a single short vehicle transfer from Champex to Chanrion we can complete this challenging high altitude trek in just 6 days, all of which involve glacier trekking. Expert guidance is essential, on a trekking route that crosses several high and testing passes and numerous glaciers.

During the course of our trek along the Haute Route, there is time to practice the fundamentals of mountaineering and the skills needed for safe walking on glaciated terrain (ice-axe and crampons required). From our comfortable French Alps chalet base in the Chamonix Valley, to our arrival at the famously picturesque ski-town of Zermatt in the Swiss Alps, we accumulate more than 8000 metres of ascent and descent. Offering a blend of amazing scenery and overnight stops at some of the very best Alpine refuges, this one week Haute Route trekking holiday through the Alps of France and Switzerland ranks amongst the world's great mountain walks.

Most enjoyed - Being on the glaciers for the first time with crampons. Different climbing via ferratas and rocks ( a bit of everything). The guide was a great guide with lots of knowledge and very experienced. Felt safe all the way.

The trek was challenging, but it was a fantastic experience to be amongst the high alpine peaks. Our guide was extremely helpful and professional in his approach. Other than the weather it is difficult for me to suggest any improvements!
