The Alps offer almost unlimited adventure, and the Walker's Haute Route is probably the best way of getting deep into these spectacular mountains. Trekking from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn, from Chamonix in France to Zermatt in Switzerland, you'll traverse one of the finest stretches of the Pennine Alps. A challenging 13-day walk over 11 ridges in 113 miles (180kms), it isn't technically demanding and the rewards are immense.
