The Alps are a mountain range stretching across Europe, covering France, northern Italy, Switzerland and Germany, and are a world-renowned hiking area. The Alps, situated in the alpine-Himalayan chain and more than 1200 km long between the Mediterranean and the Danube, reach an altitude of 4810 m at the summit of Mont Blanc in the north of the mountain range. More than 80 peaks exceed 4000 m, most of which are located in Switzerland in the Valais Alps. The Alps will delight the hiker with their exceptional panoramas on a variety of breathtaking landscapes. Among the most notable regions are Haute-Savoie and its medium and high mountain ranges, the Valais and summits reaching the sky, the Val d’ Aosta and its picturesque small valleys, and much more.
