Hike the Haute Route
Chamonix to Zermatt
The Haute Route is a high hiking route between Chamonix in France and Zermatt in Switzerland. The route takes around 12 days to complete the 180km (112mi) trek from the Chamonix valley, home of Mont Blanc, to Zermatt, home of the Matterhorn. The route is well signposted, non-technical (requires no ropes, crampons, or protection devices) and takes advantage of the popular mountain huts and small inns and hotels in the villages along the way.
