Day 1: Hike to Europahut

You will be picked up from Geneva airport at 11am and driven to Zermatt. After a quick gear check, you'll take the rugged trail up to the Europahut. With panoramic views of the surrounding Swiss Alps, you will spend the evening in this cosy mountain hut, at just over 2000m of altitude. All food, accommodation and airport transfers are included on this trip.

Day 2: Trek to Taschalp (via Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge)

Today you'll cross the Charles Kuonen suspension bridge. At 500m long, it's the longest hanging suspension bridge in the world! In the afternoon you'll trek to a remote mountain hut, surrounded by glaciers and mountain peaks.

Day 3: Summit Pfulwe Peak

The hike starts gently towards the small Pfulwe glacier. From here you will have the option to summit Pfulwe (3313m), before hiking down to Zermatt.

Day 4: Zermatt Edelweiss Trail

After a traditional Swiss breakfast, you will enjoy a nice hike up to the Edelweiss traverse. From here you can enjoy incredible views of the Matterhorn. After the day's hike, you will be taken back to Geneva airport for 6pm (we recommend flying after 8pm).

We were lucky enough to have spent the weekend in the alps and are still buzzing from the most incredible adventure filled few days! 

Raffy, our guide was phenomenal. He went above and beyond to make us feel not only comfortable but surprised, motivated and confident. 
The adventure just kept blowing our minds and will be never forgotten.Raf was more like a good mate than a guide and he was so professional, happy and our type of crazy. The food was incredible, the beers kept flowing and the sights we saw were just unbelievable.

We were pushed physically and did some things we would never have imagined, but spent the whole weekend in stitches from laughing so hard and still can’t wipe the smiles off our faces. 
We felt so safe and at ease with Raf, he’s such an expert in these mountains and you can tell it’s his true passion to share them with his guests.
This experience was so amazing!

What a great trip! They are happy making tracks in the mountains. They see the value and the beauty of the natural world, the joy of sharing it with friends, the sense of accomplishment of doing something you weren't sure you could do. They know that feeling, when you are so tired, and so hungry (and yes, even so stinky) there is just no happiness that compares to what a hot shower, an amazing meal and a cozy bunk will bring you at the end of the day. 

Life is short and if we are not careful, we can lose sight of what really makes it worth living. I like to travel because the experience they provide is all about the things that make life worth living to me! 

Also, both Raphael and Anja are seriously BADASS!!! (even though they are also both kind of nerds)
