The Tour de Monte Rosa

- Swiss Alpine Inn-to-Inn Hiking Tour

hiking tour of monte rosa

»VIEW FULL SLIDESHOW

One of the finest and most challenging long distance walks in the Alps is to make a circuit of Monte Rosa.

Lying in the Pennine Alps bordering Switzerland and Italy, the Monte Rosa Range is made up of seven summits over 4000 metres high, including the Dufourspitze, the second highest peak in the Alps.

Still a relatively new circuit, the Tour de Monte Rosa looks set to become one of Europe's classic long distance walks.

Travelling on ancient paths, through pine forests, meadows and hidden valleys, we keep as close as possible to the snow capped mountains with views to the peaks of the Matterhorn, the Weisshorn and the Dom.
A truly stunning trip which includes a night in the world famous alpine town of Zermatt.

With a minivan delivering our extra gear, a daypack will suffice to carry our essential items for each day's hike.

By getting progressively stronger each day of the trek, thanks to comfortable hotels and inns, good food and plenty of exercise, you should come away with a renewed understanding of why mountains are climbed and walked simply because they are there.
