My daughter and I will be in Switzerland in the early July. We plan to do a backpacking trip between Saas Fee and Zermatt. We plan to spend 5 days/4 nights using the huts along the way. We are in average physical condition, had backpacking experience. We are not prepare for crossing glaciers using crampons or technical climb over mountain tops. We can do may be 15 Km a day if the elevation change is not too extreme. I need suggestions on alpine huts and routes.

thanks in advance,

Hi ywong91301 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

I haven't been in that area before so can't give personal advice.

To start, I'd visit the website for the Swiss Alpen Club here:
and email some huts for more details and reservations. Also do a search of our website (top right) for hut to hut hikes and Saas Fee hiking etc. You should find some good information.
