Great for speedy hikers (above average speed & endurance) who are happy to hike on average 6 hours per day (up to 9 hours on the biggest day) but only have 10 days to complete the Haute Route. The Cabane de Moiry is relatively new and located immediately beside the glacier. It has a huge glass facade in the dining room which allows you to witness the changing light on the glacier as the sun sets during dinner and therefore it is no surprise that a night here is often regarded as a Haute Route hikers favourite for their entire journey.

This route includes the Sentier balcony trail with landscape views of the Grand Combin Massif as a consolation to missing Europaweg. Rising early in Zermatt to see the Alpine Glow of the Matterhorn will go a long way to making up for your decision to choose Moiry Glacier instead :)

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

  • Cabane de Moiry: Spend a night at the modern Cabane next to Moiry Glacier with a huge glass facade in the dining room to enjoy the spectacular view

Note: Due to time restrictions, this itinerary does not include the Europaweg section of trail. See other itineraries if this is a key highlight you would like to include.
