Walk the western section of the Walker’s Haute Route from Chamonix to Arolla. Wonderful views of the Mont Blanc Massif and classic Alpine Walking. The Walker’s Haute Route is an iconic high-level walk that links the famous towns of Chamonix and Zermatt. This variation covers the first six days of the trail from Chamonix to Arolla. Your adventure begins in Chamonix, one of the great mountaineering centres of the world. Initially, the Haute Route leads you through the Chamonix Valley from the base of Mont Blanc over the Col de Balme and into Switzerland. Walking through alpine pastures filled with the sound of cowbells your journey takes you to the pretty Lakeside town of Champex and then through increasingly remote and beautiful mountain landscapes via Mont Fort and Prafleuri to Arolla.
