European Alps

The best mountain walks in France, Italy & Switzerland

Experience the thrilling Tour du Mont Blanc in France, the mighty Italian Dolomites, and the impressive valleys and trails of Switzerland. The European Alps are as enticing in summer as they are under three feet of snow. Trekking over and around these spectacular mountain ranges will give you a great sense of achievement.

They differ in the difficulty levels so you can find a walk to suit your ability but all three areas offer a good walking challenge. Switzerland is the easier option then the Tour du Mont Blanc with the Dolomites being the most demanding. At the end of each day as you enjoy a 3-course meal prepared by our local hosts you will have time to reflect on your time on the trail. The routes we offer in the Alps were all chosen for their outstanding scenery and Alpine walking.

If you love vast landscapes, experiencing new cultures, breathing in the fresh alpine air, and the company of like-minded walkers, then trekking in the European Alps should be the next adventure on your list!

We’d love to help you plan your journey. It’s what we do best!
