Urner Haute Route, with its many historical associations crosses a particularly desolate stretch of land between Andermatt and Engelberg.
A touch of adventure is in the air as you make your way along the impressive stages from hut to hut. Summit tours from Gemsstock to Lochberg, Sustenhorn (3,503 m), Uratstock and Grassen (2,946 m) ending with a dream descent to Engelberg.
This impressive route through the Central Swiss Alps was once one of the major Alpine crossings. The ascent and descent totals approximately 5,500 altitude metres and can be covered in four to five days.
As the route is not signposted, we strongly recommend that you are accompanied by a mountain guide.
Safety tips for off-piste skiing
