You never know what you’re going to see on a Ryder-Walker tour!
Dave Gruss and his crew ran into these bagpipers while hiking the famous Hiker’s Haute Route last summer. This is the segment from St. Luc to Gruben, Switzerland with a view looking up the Val de Zinal toward the Zinalrothorn, the Dent Blanche and the Matterhorn.
Here’s a shot of the Highlanders with our hikers. Note the percussion section. They carried those drums up from the village below!
Maybe we should rename this trip and call it the Highlander’s Haute Route. This year’s Hiker’s Haute Route runs July 11-22, 2015. Bring your pipes and drums, please!
Have you already hiked the Haute Route? This is the perfect opportunity to mention our Scottish Highlands and Islands hiking tour. Our 2015 trip is already sold out, but we can set up a private tour, or get you on the wait list for 2016!
