Hike the famous Swiss Haute Route and witness one of the greatest collection of 4000 m peaks in all of the Swiss alps, visit some of the area's most spectacular valleys, wander through tiny villages and hamlets, skirt hanging glaciers, traverse lonely passes and fill your days with wonder. Hiking is ingrained in the Swiss culture and you will trek for eleven days from Champex, near the French border, to the Matterhorn region without carrying a tent, sleeping bag or stove because all nights will be spent in Swiss Alpine Club huts, private mountain refuges or small hotels, mainly in remote locations, and most with hot showers.
Founded in 1912 and designed to unite adventure, education and
preservation, we represent the Colorado lifestyle and everything that is
great about Colorado.
