Situated on the Swiss - Italian frontier, Monte Rosa is spectacular from all angles. More of a massif than a single mountain, Monte Rosa claims ten separate summits over 4000m, making it a mountaineer's paradise. The Tour of Monte Rosa is an adventure, challenging and very varied, taking a high route around the massif. In areas of true wilderness on this tour walkers will experience a sense of remoteness rarely found in the Alps. The trek takes walkers over high passes using ancient trails to superb viewpoints and through fascinating alpine villages. Italy and Switzerland meet on the summit of Monte Rosa and the contrast between these two countries, their different culture, food and languages, gives this trek its originality. In Italy, the walk spends considerable time high above the plains, visiting tiny hamlets, including the fascinating German-speaking Walser settlement, whilst the Swiss section crosses a glacier to reach Zermatt, dominated by the Matterhorn, before taking the impressive Europaweg trail to the spectacular village of Saas Fee.
