self-guided Haute Route

What is a Self-Guided Haute Route package?

By doing a self-guided Haute Route, you’ll be your own guide. This gives you the freedom to hike at your own pace, and to take route variants that might not be possible for a typical guided group. However, by booking a self-guided package, you will not be alone! We’ll provide you with a detailed digital guidebook, plus day-by-day GPS maps. We’ll book all your accommodation, and – of course! – you’ll be able to contact us at anytime. A self-guided package offers hassle-free hiking, with the safety-net of local, expert guides.

What’s included in a Self-Guided Haute Route?

Our standard self-guided packages include :

A digital guidebook

You’ll receive a Self-Guided Tour du Mont Blanc guidebook, created by our team of local guides. Within the guidebook, you’ll find :

      • detailed turn-by-turn descriptions
      • route-finding information
      • information about mountain safety
      • interesting facts about local flora, fauna and culture
      • descriptions of what views you can expect to see along the trail
      • information about where to eat, drink, and buy provisions
      • village guides

GPX Files

We’ll send you GPX Files for each stage of your Tour du Mont Blanc. You can download these onto your mobile phone, and then follow the GPS route.


We will book all your accommodation for you. The accommodation is in a mix of shared dormitories and private rooms : you will have 5 nights in a shared dormitory, and 5 nights in a private room. Some nights you’ll stay in remote mountain villages, with just a few simple shops. On other nights, you’ll stay in mountain refuges. Mountain refuges are special places. High up in the mountains, they’re only accessible by foot or helicopter. For more information about mountain refuges, read this post. If you’d prefer more private accommodation, this can be arranged. The exact price changes from year to year, so we will discuss this with you when planning your tour.


The accommodation will provide breakfast in the mornings, plus a 3 course dinner in the evenings. The only accommodation that does not include dinner is the hotel in Verbier. However, this is an opportunity to explore the historic town and find your ideal Swiss meal!

Support from our team of local guides

As we’re based year-round in the Chamonix valley, we will provide expert knowledge and in-person support. We’ll publish reliable trail updates on our blog, and you can call our emergency number at any time. Ahead of your tour, we’ll also send you informative videos about what to pack, and what to expect from a self-guided Haute Route.

Customising a Self-Guided Haute Route package

If you have specific requests, we’ll work with you to tailor-make your self-guided package. If there’s a specific mountain refuge that you’d like to stay at, or if you want to sleep in more private rooms, we can normally accommodate your requests without a problem. However, please note that accommodation on the Haute Route fills up very quickly, so whether we can accommodate your requests will depend on how early you book your tour.

About the Haute Route

The Haute Route is one of the most impressive multi-day tours in the Alps. The route is characterised by the rugged alpine terrain, long ascents and incredible mountain scenery. Hiking the Haute Route, you’ll travel from France to Switzerland, and from French-speaking villages to German-speaking villages. Ranked as one of the top 10 hikes of the world, the Haute Route is the perfect choice for experienced and physically fit hikers who are looking to challenge themselves. The route crosses over more than 11 high-alpine passes.
