Basic Speedy 10 Day Moiry + Skywalk

19.00

This itinerary is for Speedy hikers that want to maximise their 10 days by including a night at Moiry Glacier but also cross Skywalk, world's longest suspension bridge located on the Europaweg trail. To achieve this in 10 days, the route is the same as 10 day (Moiry Glacier) up until the Mattertal Valley where it follows the valley until Randa, where you will hike up to Europaweg Trail to cross the Skywalk. You will then descend back to the valley and continue onto Zermatt. This is the longest day in the itinerary which can be shortened by catching a train within the Mattertal Valley (but surely you’ll find something special to hike across the finish line though!).
