Preparing to hike Chamonix to Zermatt

By Brandon Neubert

Preparing for the Swiss Haute Route, from Chamonix to Zermatt, required hours of effort and weeks of planning. In this video, Brandon Neubert breaks down and shares some of the most important things he learned while plotting his adventure

While I use the Haute Route as an example, this guide applies to any hiking trek within the European Alps. I spend time on your budget, share a basic itinerary, cover flight booking, accommodations, foreign languages, and of course my not-so-secret weapon – my Cicerone guidebook!

I hope that this video will help answer some of your basic questions on completing a trek like this, so you can lose some of your fears and hesitations and enjoy a similar experience that I had. The Haute Route was an incredible experience that changed my life, and you deserve the same!

Let’s get planning!
