I am at the beginning stages of planning a trip to hike a portion of the Alpine Pass Route. Ideally I would like to start around the Fluelen/Engelberg area and hike into the Berner Oberland area, then take a trail south to Zermatt area. I would like to find a map that shows the basic routes in Switzerland, then from that get more detailed maps that would help me during the hike. Would you have any links for maps and a suggestion which map(s) to order? Thanks

Here is a link to a nice website someone has already posted breaking down each segment.

Hi Larry,
The best place for maps and map advice - probably in the UK - is The Map Shop in Upton upon Severn. They really know their stuff and are happy to advise. See www.themapshop.co.uk
