Event Details

Chamonix to Zermatt, Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn. The Haute Route is a spectacular and demanding trek of dramatic contrasts that passes through two distinct cultural regions with different languages and architecture through the French and Swiss Alps. In two weeks, RRT owners Joe and Emily White and two of their friends traversed 120 miles through the greatest collection of 13,000ft peaks in all the Alps. Journey the Haute Route with them as they explore a world of towering snow-capped peaks, glaciers that hang suspended from huge buttresses of rock, and challenging, stone-filled moraines. Meander with them through striking green alpine valleys, flower-covered meadows, deep fragrant forests, remote alp hamlets, and delightful picture-book villages. With marmots among the boulders and chamois on the heights, their days were filled with wonder. Come see for yourself why the Walker’s Haute Route is no doubt a contender for the title of the Most Beautiful Hike in Europe.
