High Trail to the Matterhorn

  • Impressive views across to the Matterhorn
  • Wild, colourful alpine flowers
  • Exhilarating high alpine walking
  • Traditional, local Swiss cuisine at your overnight accommodation
  • Staying in a traditional mountain hut
The Matterhorn is one of the highest mountain peaks in the Alps, its dramatic pyramid peak stands proudly at 4478m. Discover the beauty of this wondrous mountain as you walk along the haute route from Brig down to Zermatt on our self guided walking holiday. Follow the trail along steep mountain passes with striking views of snow capped peaks. Experience the warmth of the locals in traditional Swiss villages and tuck into a cheese fondue at the end of a hard day of walking. Search for wild flowers and marvel at the landscapes on this wonderful walking adventure in the Swiss Alps. Your journey begins in the small, charming city of Brig in south west Switzerland. Very soon you make your way up to the high walking trails overlooking pleasant valleys and along steep mountain passes. Follow ever changing scenery as you head south passing Simplon, Saas Fee and along the King's Route. An experience not to be missed is staying at the remote mountain hut - ‘Europahutte’, situated high in the mountains. Continue south following the trail and eventually you catch the first glimpse of the spectacular Matterhorn in the distance. The walk finishes in Zermatt the popular tourist town and its worth spending a bit of time here to relax after your walking adventure.
