Chamonix to Zermatt Haute Route Map
This Chamonix to Zermatt Haute Route Map Guide outlines two different variations of the Haute Route from Chamonix, France to Zermatt, Switzerland: one for hikers and one for skiers.
The northernmost route or, Walker’s Route, depicted on the map travels north from Chamonix and traverses through the Alps all the way to Zermatt. The ski route depicted on this map illustrates the Grand Lui variation, which is the longest and most technical route that eliminates the road links of the Verbier and Classic variations.
Though the term Haute Route has been widely used for many multi-day, hut-to-hut alpine tours, the “Chamonix–Zermatt Haute Route” remains the original. Thus, whether you choose to wear skis or hiking boots, the Haute Route is an adventure unlike any other.
