The route would take us French speaking Val D'Arolla through small villages, hamlets and alpine pasture, over high mountain col's and even around enormous earth moving glaciers, until we reached the German speaking Valais & Zermatt.
We managed to get all seasons weather over the 5 days, starting off from Arolla in bright warm sunshine, getting a spot of rain as we made our way over 'Meidpass' at 2790m and ice as we crossed 'Augstbordpass' 2894m on final last day.
