The view into the different valleys in Switzerland and Italy is unforgettable. Hikers see not only the highest and most beautiful mountains in the Alps, but also mountain villages with different cultures and of incomparable character. The stage destinations are well-known: Zermatt, over the Theodul Pass to Cervinia, Alagna, Macugnaga, and back into Switzerland via the Monte Moro Pass, to Saas-Fee and Grächen.
The route leads anticlockwise around the Monte Rosa massif, an endlessly fascinating world of rock and ice. Hikers also make a complete circuit of the Mischabel peaks and the 4,000-metre summits of the Nadelgrat ridge. A thrilling adventure that is simply unforgettable!
Reserve mountain huts and accommodation in mountain villages in advance.
