Welcome To Russell Tours

Offering Self-Guided Hiking Tours in the Alps of Europe.

At Russell Tours we provide hikers access to the most Iconic routes in the world.

* The Tour du Mont Blanc – a classic hike on well marked trails around the tallest mountain in Europe.

* The Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt is the only hiking route with 14 mountains over 14,000 feet in the world.

We provide a way to do these classic journeys in sections and stages. In a timetable you can manage.

The goal is to give our hikers access to the best hiking and enjoy the finer hotels and not to have to commit to 15 or 20 days to take one of these timeless journeys.

We call these our 2 and 3-culture hikes!

The area between Chamonix France and Zermatt Switzerland represents French, Italian and German cultural aspects of the food, the architecture and the habits of the people who live in this diverse area. Our hiking programs give you a flavor of each of these wonderful cultural heritages with some of the best hiking in the world.

What our Hikers Say:

“Our self guided Haute Trip was fantastic-very well coordinated, the team at Russell Tours was flexible, helpful, and all was inexpensive”
