Even though hiking the Haute Route doesn’t require any technical skills, it is generally recommended to those with a great level of fitness and an experience of multi-day hikes on mountain trails. You can expect 4,000-foot ascents on more challenging days and hiking between 10 and 15 miles for 7 hours on average for 7-10 consecutive days.
Keep in mind that hiking can be made difficult because of changing weather. However, you will always have a guide by your side who will be able to quickly notice if hiking gets too strenuous for you or somebody in your group and make any adjustments. You will also be able to take many breaks, including those that allow you to take in the views.
Due to some more exposed sections, the tour is not recommended for those with severe fear of heights.
