Classic Haute Route Overview

Traverse the Alps from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn - the ultimate Alpine mountaineering holiday

This is the ultimate high Alpine trekking adventure, following the iconic Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt. Taking a dramatic and uncompromising line, the classic Haute Route traverses the heart of the European Alps, linking Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn by a series of high cols and impressive glaciers. Expert guidance is essential on this challenging walking route and during the course of the traverse, there is plenty of opportunity to hone mountaineering skills. From the start point at our comfortable chalet base in the Chamonix Valley of the French Alps, to the end point in the famously picturesque ski-town of Zermatt in the Swiss Alps, we will have walked 120km and accumulated more than 10,000 metres of ascent and descent. Offering the most breathtaking scenery in the Alps and overnight stops at some of the very best Alpine refuges, the Classic Haute Route from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn, ranks among the world's greatest mountain walking adventures.
