Complete Elite 7 Day A little luxury

49.00

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!
