The Hiker’s Haute Route is one of the world’s classic, and challenging, treks. The Route was established almost a hundred years ago, first as a ski route. It was later developed into a high-level hike. This July 16 - 26, 2013 hike links the two famous birth places of mountaineering in the Alps, Chamonix and Zermatt, each with its own fascinating history. (This guided tour is also offered at other times by special arrangement for your group.) The Route connecting these busy Alpine centers of activity contains numerous quaint and quiet villages, which you’ll pass through. You’ll have glimpses into two countries (France and Switzerland), as well as into two linguistic areas (French and German) of the Swiss canton of Valais. You’ll get to see an amazing array of over four thousand meter peaks on this trek, starting with Mont Blanc in the Chamonix Valley and culminating with the Matterhorn in Zermatt, that most hypnotic of mountains.
