Suggestion for Alps on 05/16/2010 16:03:18 MDT Print View

I will have almost a week in Europe following a conference in early Sept. I'm looking for additional suggestions for some routes that would be suitable for walking. I'm considering the tour du mt blanc and teh Haute Route from Zermatt to Mt. Blanc, but I suspect both are likely to be crowded and not at all like any wilderness I've known in the past. I'm looking for a less well travelled path in the 100 mile (160km) range in western or eastern Europe.

Both TMB and Cham-Zermatt are very good, but more than a week. They are not really crowded - we may have seen a few people every now and then. You can of course do a part.

Any 'less well travelled path in the 100 mile (160km) range' is going to be poorly marked. If it is in the mountains I wouldn't recommend that until you know the area.

Any high route there is GOOD!

Cheers
