Guided Trekking Holidays

Guided trekking trips and walking tours are the classic holiday types and are still the most popular way of hiking and trekking in the mountains. It is by far the easiest and safest way of completing a tour in the Alps. There's no need to worry about route finding, safety, trip planning, booking accommodation etc. You just show up, walk and enjoy.

Your guide will know the area well, and will be able to change the route on short notice to suit the group, and out of necessity, such as bad weather conditions, landslides, and other unforeseen circumstances. In addition, you have the benefit of being in the company of a knowledgeable leader who can add value to your trip by sharing his/her knowledge about the history, geology, flora and fauna of the areas you visit. It's also comforting to have a leader who knows the language as well as many of the owners of the mountain huts and hotels along the tour, which often leads to a better experience (and bigger meal portions!).

Guided tours can be either private or scheduled. On a private tour you choose the dates, pace and who you are with. On a scheduled tour you join a fixed departure with a group of like-minded individuals.

If you're an experienced mountain walker and prefer to undertake a trek or tour independently, you may wish to consider a SELF-GUIDED trekking trip or walking holiday.

Our Guide/Instructor Guarantee
We always use certified guides and instructors according to the requirements of the specific itinerary. Our guides and instructors are members of their relevant international associations, whether UIMLA, IFMGA or ISIA. Not only is this a legal requirement in most of the Alpine countries, but it's also your guarantee of a safe, knowledgeable and experienced leader on your trip. Our leaders are hand-picked and have extensive experience in the areas they operate in. Most of our leaders are our long-time friends and climbing, trekking or skiing partners who, in addition to being incredibly skillful, are great companions in the mountains. Obviously, all our leaders are fluent English speakers.
