Great for speedy hikers (above average speed & endurance) who are happy to hike on average 7 hours per day (up to 9 hours on the biggest day) but only have 10 days to complete the Haute Route. Finishing the Haute Route from the Europaweg trail is the preferred approach given the Matterhorn dominates your landscape view for the final hours of hiking and reflection, rather than suddenly appearing in the final moments if you take the valley trail. This route include crossing the Chelion Glacier, so hikers will still get an opportunity for a unique experience with one of these ancient natural wonders as a consolation to missing a night at Moiry Glaicer.

Key trail highlights:

  • Sentier Trail: Amazing balcony trail above the Bagnes Valley with views of the Grand Combin Massif where the original Haute Route ski tour crosses

  • Crossing Chelion Glacier: Experience a self-guided glacier crossing after stopping in at Cabane Des Dix to plot your path and enjoy some food on their patio

  • Europaweg Trail: A high alpine balcony trail running up the Mattertal Valley to the Haute Route finish line, which includes the world's longest suspension bridge.

Note: Due to time restrictions, this itinerary does not go to Moiry Glacier. See other itineraries if this is a key highlight you would like to include.
