The Walkers Haute Route connects two of the most well-known mountain towns in the Alps - Chamonix, France, and Zermatt, Switzerland. Typically starting from Mont Blanc and finishing at Matterhorn, it crosses 11 mountain passes, covering about 200 kilometers - offering a multitude of variations and route options.

Our 8-day package leads you through the eastern half of the Walkers Haute Route, starting in La Sage and ending in Zermatt, Switzerland. This is basically the same package as this 6-day itinerary but with a hotel in La Sage and in Zermatt. Along the way, you will spend the nights in Swiss mountain huts and local Hotels. During this 6-day adventure, you'll enjoy stunning mountain views, snow-capped peaks, and walk through small picturesque mountain villages. You don't have to worry about the logistics of booking the huts. We'll take care of that for you, so all you have to do is enjoy this unforgettable adventure.



Arrival in La Sage

Welcome to Switzerland! Today you will arrive in La Sage and be expected in a pleasant Hotel in the city. Your overnight stay includes breakfast.

Hotel de la Sage (La Sage)


La Sage to Cabane Barrage de Moiry

Duration: 04:45 h
Distance: 12.7 km
Ascent: 1280 m
Descent: 640 m
Stage eight involves a lot of climbing, as you can tell by the elevation change. You'll leave La Sage and begin the hard ascent a little over 4 kilometers northwest of the Col du Tsaté, which will lead you into the breathtaking Val de Moiry. After descending into the valley, you'll reach Cabane Barrage de Moiry over a steep and rather exposed last portion. With its direct views of the Lac de Moiry, the Cabane is without a doubt one of the most stunning spots to spend the night on the Walker's Haute Route.

Cabane Barrage de Moiry


Cabane Barrage de Moiry to Zinal

Duration: 03:30 h
Distance: 9.2 km
Ascent: 510 m
Descent: 1140 m
Given that you've already done much of the climbing on stage eight, you'll have a head start on stage nine. The trek begins with spectacular views of the Lac de Moiry on your way to the Col. When you reach the Col de Sorebois, you'll be rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding Alps. The descent then passes through a ski area (with the option of taking the cable car down) before reaching in Zinal, a ski resort town. There is also a much smoother alternative route down from the Sorebois ski lift to Zinal than the regular one. It’s a great option for anyone who has tired legs!
