The Tour of the Matterhorn is a superb alpine trek with a huge variety of scenery and culture. As the Matterhorn straddles the Swiss-Italian frontier, the trek visits both countries, each with its own unique traditions, way of life and scenery. The tour goes over high passes reached by delightful footpaths and through charming alpine villages where life has hardly changed for centuries, providing a precious insight into local life. Not only is the Matterhorn seen from all sides, but there are also superb vantage points for views of many of the other high summits of the region.The Tour of the Matterhorn is regarded as a relatively 'new' tour as it has been documented only in the last few years. The paths it uses though are generally anything but new - these are often ancient ways over passes leading from one valley to another. The tour includes two glacier crossings and usually takes about eight to ten days to complete. With suggestions for shorter variants as well as information for the ascent of peaks en-route.

About the Author:

ilary Sharp is a qualified Accompagnatrice en Montagne (International Mountain Leader) based permanently in the village of Vallorcine, near Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in the French Alps. A native Brit, she runs her own trekking business, leading guided walks and treks. Hilary has contributed to several British walking magazines and hiking guides. This is her fifth guidebook for Cicerone.

Review:

'The introduction contains a mass of information, not just practical, but also social and historical. The tour is in the high mountains, a circuit with views of all the Zermatt and Arolla peaks. This is a wonderful route for the competent hillwaker.' (Irish Mountain Log Magazine, Summer 2006)
