Swiss Alps & Haute Route (Switzerland)

 Swiss Alps & Haute Route (Switzerland)
A magnificent hut-to-hut hiking trail from Chamonix, France near the Mont Blanc Massif to Zermatt, Switzerland, home to the Matterhorn. 

Alpine peaks, rugged high-mountain passes, pure mountain air, and charming Swiss hamlets... Live Out Loud Adventures is thrilled to announce this nine-day, 118km, classic trek across the Swiss Alps.  

Our expert guide will lead you into the heart of the wildest part of Switzerland, from village to village, mountain to mountain pass.   Your luggage will be shuttled almost every day enabling you to follow the well-defined trail with ease.  There is no technical climbing, but you need to be physically prepared for long days of high-level trail walking.  The variety of accommodations is truly delightful ranging from primitive mountain huts to enchanting Inns.  We’ve got everything covered. We’d love you to join us.
The Haute Route is the highest trek across the Alps and offers what is reputedly the most amazing scenery.  That says a lot when you are comparing Alpine treks.  The trek is mentally and physically challenging, but we were justly rewarded by breathtaking views at every turn.
