Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn

This was my first ever trek so I was anxious at first. I quickly settled in to the group and found the trek a great adventure and experience. The guide we had was excellent in terms of gaging the groups abilities and leading us. The support member of staff was also relaible and provided a good service. It was a hard trek at times but very rewarding. I am already looking to plan my next trip with Exodus!

Excellent, Tough Trip but Very Rewarding

5
We did this trek in July and had perfect blue sky weather every day, but rain on the last day for the walk into Zermatt. The trek for us was one of the best European treks we have done and was very challenging/tough but extremely rewarding with stunning and changeable scenery every day. We really enjoyed the camping although the mountain huts and auberge were a little close for comfort but manageable once you got use to the idea of sleeping closely with other people!! This trek had it all for us. High col passes, snow walking and bum sliding, steep ascents, steep descents, rough terrain, boulder jumping, chains, forests, gushing rivers, waterfalls and lakes and absolutely stunning snow capped mountains and scenery. However, we were a little disappointed that the itinerary was not followed on the first day of walking and we missed not starting from the teleferique at Plan Praz and also the high level contour walk with ladders and chains.

We were a little unfortunate with the weather in that we had a full week with minimal views, quite a lot of rain and very low cloud which was disappointing and at times frustrating. However we had a great group and learnt to recognise a lot of alpine flowers, as this was all we could see at times. We really appreciated the expansive views when the sun finally came out. The tents were a really good size for two and Charlie whipped up some fantastic meals in camp.

excellent guide (Mike Rhodes) - right out of the top drawer.  Would have enjoyed it more and would have been happy to pay more if the trek focused on Auberge accommodation.  Under canvas is not the best way to prepare oneself for a daily slog.

An outstanding and challenging trip. The mix of day walking and light backpacking, and the slow transition from France, French Switzerland to German Switzerland meant every day was subtly different and interesting. The reward of the Matterhorn on the last day was mesmerising.

Fantastic trip, somewhat challenging but that's all part of the fun. Great sense of achievement at the end. Brilliant scenery, and we were lucky with the weather too. Very well organised trip, with an extremely competent mountain guide, who was happy for people to walk at their own pace whether that was fast or slow. The camping was very civilised - the only campsite chores that had to be done were taking down your own tent and helping out with the washing up now and then. This made changing campsites each day hassle free. Laundry facilities were available en route - I didn't need to take as much stuff as I did. The food surpassed all my expectations, and I am a fussy eater. Three courses every night of the best food I have ever had whilst camping. Overall one of the best trips I have done - recommended!

The ‘Haute Route’ through the mountains of France and Switzerland is a fantastic two weeks of spectacular scenery, some good old fashioned hard work and an indescribable sense of accomplishment. This part of the Alps has some of the best hiking I have ever experienced, with photos to last a lifetime. With an extremely competent and knowledgeable leader, and great hearty food every evening, you would be hard pressed to find yourself getting bored or going hungry on this trip. A brilliant holiday, which left many of my friends extremely envious, of both my pictures and my achievements.

The walking and the scenery were breath taking.  Every day yielded new views. It was a challenge to ascend each pass but the rewards were fantastic.  The trip was challenging but within my capabilities.

THE WALKERS HAUTE ROUTE

A beautiful & challenging trek. Not at all to be underestimated, but acheivable for any fit hiker who will be rewarded with stunning views at the end of every climb. We experienced all possible weather, from arriving at the refuge in heavy snow to glorious sunshine on many trails, which only added to the scenery and experience.

A challenging walk through fantastic scenery, with excellent support from the Exodus Team.Like the Tour du Mont Blanc this is an excellent journey through magnificant scenery in the heart of the alps, the days on Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn are however more demanding.
