High Mountain and Canyoning Guide

High Route Chamonix-Zermatt

It’s the most famous among the mountain ski journeys in the world. Spectacular route and especially beautiful for its views of the landscapes that surround it. This High Route unites the two capitals of European mountain climbing and from its start under the Mont Blanc, until its finish at the foot of Cervino, will carry us through the heart of the Alps skiing through three counties, France, Italy and Switzerland.

In this programme we offer you one of the different variations of this journey known as the Classic High Route.
