The highest and most beautiful peaks of the Swiss Alps can be seen in the impressive mountain panorama on the Europe Route. The Mischabel group, the Weisshorn and of course the world famous Matterhorn compete for the favour of the observer. Only once does the path drop down to the floor of the valley, between Gspon and Zermatt. Otherwise the path snakes it’s way, sometimes in a daring manner along the steep sides of the Saaser and Matter valleys. Places such as Saas Fee, Grächen and Zermatt lie directly on the route. Five days of top class mountain walking.
