Experienced walkers who enjoy classic alpine settings will relish this challenging walk that takes in some of Switzerland's most beautiful valleys, villages, flowers, alpine wildlife and classic Swiss mountain scenery. During the tour you'll pass under ten of the twelve highest peaks in the Alps as well as admire spectacular glaciers as you cross high rugged passes such as the Col de Torrent (2918m) into the equally stunning Val d' Anniviers, with its great cirque of white peaks: Dent Blanche, Zinal Rothorn, Weisshorn and Obergabelhorn. You'll also cross the Col de Sorebois (2896m), follow rarely trodden paths, admire peaks such as Mount Collon, Pigne d'Arolla and Aiguille de la Tsa, hike through the famous Val d'Herens, and visit quaint picture postcard villages before descending into the stunning Mattertal Valley to Randa and Zermatt where you'll have a glittering array of walks to enjoy.
