Hiking holiday Swiss Tour Monte Rosa

Hiking: Swiss Tour Monte Rosa

Paths for all senses 

The wind whistles around your ears, occasionally a stone crunches under your shoe. But otherwise, you hear... nothing! The pioneers, who built the Balfrin high trail over several summers in the 1950s, did not call the connection between Saas-Fee and Grächen the "path to silence" for nothing.

Even today, there are no pubs or mountain hotels on this hike to disturb the peace. After this challenging start, the equally panoramic Europe Trail follows. The Weisshorn now majestically accompanies you on the coming hiking days. The Matterhorn comes into view in front of you and high up in the sky an eagle circles. The mountain world, through which the Swiss Tour Monte Rosa leads, is a feast for all the senses.

Itinerary

Challenging high-level trail between Saas-Fee and Grächen, extremely exposed in places as it leads through the steep walls of the Balfrin group. Dizzying views deep into the Saastal, enthralling views of the Fletschhorn, Lagginhorn and Weissmies.

approx. 7 h
approx. 20 km

First section of the Europaweg trail. Starting with a steep climb to the ridge, then with superb views along the steep flanks of the Mischabel on the spectacular high-level trail to the Europahütte (hut). Sensational panorama dominated by the Weisshorn.

approx. 6.5 h
approx. 16 km
1'400 m

Second section of the Europaweg trail. Challenging, in places hewn from solid rock, running through tunnels, galleries and over bridges. Spectacular panoramic tour with views of the Valais 4000-m peaks, fabulous finale at the Leisee lake above Zermatt.

approx. 6.5 h
approx. 20 km

Tour character

The first stage to Grächen is a real challenge. Exposed sections are secured with ropes and a head for heights and sure-footedness are absolutely essential right from the start. The following stages along the Europe Trail have been made somewhat easier in recent years. However, good physical condition is also required for the hiking days to Zermatt.
