The Most Scenic Trek in Europe
Plan your summer adventure now on the Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route. Our route follows the classic trek across the Swiss Alps starting in Chamonix at the base of Mont Blanc, Western Europe's Highest Peak, and concluding in Zermatt at the base of the Matterhorn, the world's most recognizable and stunningly beautiful peak.
A challenging trek with spectacular scenery in every step
Each memorable day on the Haute Route is defined with a combination of challenging mountain passes, flowered meadows, massive glaciers, icefalls, fir forests, and stunning lakes. At the end of the day, you’ll hike into picturesque villages where traditional inns await with delicious meals and cozy comforts.
Luggage transfers so you can hike light and enjoy the route
We shuttle your luggage almost every day, so all you need to carry is a daypack with water and snacks. And of course, you’ll want to bring your camera too — after all, the Haute Route is widely regarded as the most scenic trek in the Alps.
