In the spirit of the Haute Route Chamonix-Zermatt, the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix offers a set of "Haute Route" ski tours. The opportunity to make roaming crossings in exceptional landscapes, the certainty of immersion in high mountains and a change of scenery.

The Silvretta Haute Route, straddling Austria and Switzerland, is famous for the beauty of the crossed glacial landscapes and for the exceptional comfort of the refuges which are real inns. The easy elevations and numerous variations make it an ideal trip for a first experience.
