15 Mar Trekking for Alpine Panoramas
Trekking for Alpine Panoramas
Alpine panoramas are spectacular. Living with a constant view of them, you might think that my team and I get a little blasé when it comes to the beauty of this region. But they continue to take my breath away every single day.
Where can you find the most beautiful Alpine panoramas?
The Alpine panoramas of this region – where Italy, Switzerland, and France border each other – are the most dramatic in the world. Nestled between the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc you will find the big mountains, the monsters of the Alps and the dramatic Alpine panoramas the area is famed for. When trekking in this region, you will be in the company of most of the 4,000 metre mountain peaks.
Why is this region the most dramatic for Alpine panoramas?
The highest peaks in Europe (outside of the Caucasus mountains) are in this area of the Alps. The most well-known are Mont Blanc in France and Italy (4,810 metres), Dufourspitze in Switzerland (4,634 metres) and the world-famous Matterhorn, also in Switzerland (4,478 metres). These stunning areas are covered in snow and ice all year long. This is what creates that beautiful, picture perfect image of incredibly green wildflower covered hillsides backed by snow-topped towering peaks.
Alpine trekking – so much more than just the scenery
It’s also about the history, culture, centuries-old villages, wonderful food, wine, boutique accommodation and trails for all trekking abilities. What more could you ask for? Each country has its own personality, charm and cuisine waiting to be explored and enjoyed by you. In fact, we think crossing borders to experience the Alpine panoramas of more than one country on your trekking trip is a must.
How can you plan a trip with the best Alpine panoramas?
The Swiss have many fully sign-posted trails that will lead you on non-technical walks through this incredible countryside. Of course, these classic trails that are easily found are also easily crowded. If your priority is to get the best trekking possible and experience the region like a local, getting off the beaten path with a guided trip is a must. The Alps are an ever-changing environment. Snow at altitude, visibility, temperature and wind all dictate what your relationship with the mountain will be on your trip. Experienced guides, like ours, will know how to handle all conditions and keep you safe. So, you can concentrate on the jaw-dropping scenery and enjoying all that the region has to offer.
