Discover an alpine classic, plotted by Mountain Tracks’ IFMGA Mountain Guides.
It’s difficult to think of a more iconic journey in the Alps. Linking the two mountain meccas of Chamonix in France and Zermatt in Switzerland, the Haute Route can be completed in summer or winter. Here we have highlighted the "classic" summer route. Unlike the valley-based walkers’ Haute Route, the Classic route crosses glaciers and takes in several lofty passes and cols as it winds through the Alps.
As such, it is suggested that groups complete this route with a guide, like one of Mountain Tracks’ roster of IFMGA Qualified guides, to ensure safe passage through potentially hazardous mountains.
The Haute Route literally means "the high route," so the high-altitude classic route is considered by many to be the purest of the route variations.
