This guidebook to walking the Tour of Monte Rosa, explored the Italian-Swiss border region in an eight-stage trek, starts and finishes in Zermatt. Along the way, the Alpine trail takes in spectacular views of the Monte Rosa massif, including ten 4,000-metre summits, as well as breaks in mountain huts and the towns of Resy, Saas Fee, Macugnaga and Cervinia among others. The guidebook also provides a wealth of practical information on the area, travel, and the best way to tackle the trek.

Situated on the Swiss Italian frontier, the Monte Rosa massif is the largest massif in western Europe. The Tour of Monte Rosa is an adventure, challenging and very varied, taking a high route around the massif, hugging the glaciers on several stages. As the tour passes through areas of true wilderness, walkers will experience a sense of remoteness rarely found in the Alps. The spectacular scenery is not all that the Tour of Monte Rosa offers: the contrast between the Swiss and Italian sides of the range adds immeasurably to the whole experience and walkers are advised to take the time to explore some of the charming hamlets and villages found en route and to savour fully the different gastronomy, history and culture that make up this alpine region.
