Overview

Book
Unique to KE, the Swiss High Level Route traverses the heart of the Valais Alps, taking a classic line from Arolla to Saas Fee with tremendous views of the Matterhorn and the opportunity to ascend the Pigne d'Arolla and the Tete Blanche.  Beginning in the quiet village of Arolla, we trek through the stunning heart of the high glaciers of the Valais Alps from the superb Vignettes Hut where we make an ascent of the Pigne d'Arolla (3790m), to the spectacularly located Bertol hut, from where we make an ascent of the Tete Blanche (3724m). Passing below the north face of the Matterhorn, we then descend to the famous Swiss mountain resort of Zermatt and have some time to enjoy the town before continuing our high mountain journey via the Tasch hut and a crossing of the Alphubeljoch (3771m), to the Langflue Hotel perched high above the enormous Fee glacier. Descending to the picturesque village of Saas Fee, our traverse ends with an easy walk to the group's hotel in Saas Grund.

Ryan 

Being used to tent camping the huts on this route are luxurious! Good food and nice bathrooms; even hot showers at the Vignettes Hut! The climbing was great, lots of crevasses, a couple of minor repels, and even a little via ferrata on the way up to the Bertol Hut! Didn't worry about crevasses as our guide, Graham, had us covered safety wise. Definitely would recommend this hike if you want a taste of everything and are looking to avoid a 2 week grind. I would note that Day 5 took more like 9 - 10 hours of hiking vs the 6 - 7 listed, so make sure you are ready for a couple of long days. Bonus: Since you end in Saas Fee you can also make a self climb up the Allalinhorn (4k meter peak) the morning of the departure day to finish things off!
