Haute Route

Hey ppl,

I'm creating this topic in the chamonix forum because it is the forum that can probably provide me the best answers for my questions.

I'm thinking of crossing the haute route next summer with a few friends and I've been looking for mountain companies that would provide packages to cross the haute route (with the guides, the accomodation, equipment etc...) but it hasn't been very easy to find.

I'd like to know where I can book a haute route trip, can I do it through the internet, or in chamonix itself? If so, what are the best mountain companies offering guides and accomodation, equipment to do the haute route?

Google "Guided hiking tours of the Haute Route" and you'll get several suggestions. After you've done the research, come back to the forum for some info on the companies that look good to you.

I skied the Haute Route last April - it's a really amazing experience and I'd love to try it in summer. We went with guide Neil Hitchings - http://www.neilhitchings.com. He does it in summer too. He booked all the huts for us, made all the arrangements and was absolutely great, I would recommend him 100%. I'm pretty sure he provides or can arrange to hire all the equipment - summer equipment is different of course so I'm not sure exactly what you need or what you already have. I made a site with our pics which is here if you're interested


hope this helps! I'd be interested to hear about your progress, it's something I'd love to do.
