Basic Steady 12 Day A Little Luxury

19.00

This itinerary is targeted to hikers that would like to stay every night in a private room - this means no sharing, no loud snorers in your dorm keeping you up or smelly socks to contend with! (Unless your partner is the problem hiker…) This route covers most of the key highlights along the Haute Route, only missing Moiry Glacier, which doesn’t offer private rooms in their Cabane. This is a great itinerary for “light-packers” (as you don’t need to carry any additional sleeping gear) or those that are willing to spend a little extra money to enjoy more of a luxurious adventure. No judgement here!

Our Steady itineraries are for hikers that enjoy the balance of a challenging day on the trails without feeling rushed. They are for those that regularly clock up there 10,000 steps a day or are committed to improving their fitness in the new year. With an elevation change of 3,116 metres / 10,223 feet on the biggest day, these hikers can fire the engine up when required, but happy to spend most of the time in cruise control on as they complete a respectable daily average of 18 km / 11 miles.

Highlights for this Steady itinerary include

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

  • 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.
