Chamonix-Zermatt, La Haute Route - skiing

Haute Route Ski Touring Chamonix-Zermatt

Most Guide companies offer the Haute Route in 6 days, with a final day which is very long and exhausting from the Vignettes to Zermatt (10 hours minimum). As a result of my long experience I prefer to offer a 7 days program.

This program is made up of 5-6 hours days which ensure a more balanced and comfortable trip and gives you the optimal chance of success and, importantly, enjoyment.
