Take on the iconic Eastern section of the Walker’s Haute Route from Arolla to Zermatt. Six days of sublime mountain walking culminating at the foot of the Matterhorn in Zermatt. The Walker’s Haute Route is one of the World’s great treks and the eastern section from Arolla to Zermatt is filled with superlatives from start to finish. You can look forward to the best mountain hiking in Switzerland. Walking through alpine pastures filled with the sound of cow bells your journey takes you from the quiet town of Les Haudères through increasingly remote and beautiful mountain landscapes across famous Augustbordpass to St Niklaus. The final two days lead you to Zermatt, where the Matterhorn signals your journey’s end.
