European Alps

The best of mountain walks in France, Italy & Switzerland


Comfortable accommodation

No dormitories here! Our Alps trips use a mixture of small hotels and refuges with private rooms so you can come back to a comfortable room each night and get a good night's sleep. An essential component for your enjoyment with a mountain trek where you are working hard on the trails each day!


International Mountain Leaders

We have our own staff of experienced and qualified International Mountain leaders. Not only do they know the trek routes exceptionally well but they will excel in looking after you; your safety is our priority in an alpine environment. All our guides are native English speakers, so clear communication is never an issue.


Local support & transfers

We have our own experieneced team based in the region who help plan our trips. On the Tour du Mont Blanc we have our own dedicated driver who meets our clients and takes charge of the luggage delivery each day, giving us back-up where we need it.


Different levels of challenge

The routes we offer in the Alps were all chosen for their outstanding scenery and Alpine walking. They differ in the difficulty levels from Switzerland as the easier option then the Tour du Mont Blanc and Dolomites as the most demanding. Meaning you can find a walk to suit your ability level but all three areas offer a good walking challenge.

The highlight was successfully completing my first multi-day trek with everything going to plan, in perfect weather and feeling fitter and stronger at the end.

When we sat with Jodie, she asked us if we used walking poles and how often we did back-to-back hikes. We looked at her blankly. That was the beginning of the most magical adventure of our lives. Thank you, Jodie! The trip exceeded all our expectations.

Early season hiking was just incredible. Snow, fields of flowers, glorious sunshine. It was absolutely picturesque. Our guide, Dave, was a great leader and made sure everyone got the most out of the trip.
