AROLLA to ZERMATT Trek – Haute Route

This 3 day trek will take in some of the most magnificent scenery in the alps. We start at the little village of Arolla in Switzerland and walk over the Haute Glacier d'Arolla to Col Collon and pass into Italy where we stay the night in an Italian Prarayer Refuge ( The next day we climb over a very high pass of Col de Valcorniere with the possibility of seeing ibex and working our way around to Cervinia with the Matterhorn brooding above it. The third day is a walk over the Theodule pass stopping for lunch at the famous mountain hut and then descending into Zermatt. All the while in full view of the magnificent Matterhorn.

A fourth day may be available where we could walk up to the Hörnli Hut for lunch and hot chocolate on the ridge of the Matterhorn itself. This is an optional extra and costs will vary for this option.
