The High Route Walk

The High Route Walk Overview

This is the holiday for those seeking exhilarating walks along high mountain ridges far above the wooded slopes, valley meadows and small villages below.

  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • splendid mountain scenery, breathtaking views
  • thrilling walking and welcoming hotels
  • UNESCO World Heritage Site

In the whole Alpine region, no ridge of mountains can boast such romance as that combining the awe-inspiring peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, all around 4,000 metres. On the verdant slopes nestle idyllic, quintessential Alpine villages such as Wengen and Mürren which deservedly attract numerous hikers. Walking from Grindelwald to Kandersteg takes you on a classic route through high mountains and over splendid passes, amid some of Europe's grandest and most humbling landscapes within the Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage Site.Following well-established paths recognised for their outstanding vistas, the route is among the most challenging in our selection, with demanding ascents and descents each day, though the magnificent panoramas from the high passes also make it one of our most rewarding walks. We include a half-fare card which gives discounts on public transport if you need to shorten a walk or use a poor-weather alternative.
