European Alps

The best mountain walks in France, Italy & Switzerland


Authentic 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 experienced 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. On our Swiss and Dolomites trips, you will also enjoy the convenience of your bags being delivered directly to your accommodation each night.


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.

A fantastic trek through the Alps with stunning scenery, flora and fauna. We couldn’t have done it without our RAW Travel guide Dave, he kept us safe, satiated and happy!

We enjoyed the whole experience; including the challenging walks every day, the magnificent views, great company in our fellow trekkers and a special mention about our guide, Julien, who did a terrific job in planning the best routes, arranging lunch and snacks, booking dinners and most importantly, guiding us safely through the whole trek.

This hike was by far the best holiday experience I’ve ever had. Definitely a must do! We had an amazing guide who had a wealth of knowledge and was absolutely fantastic. It is the combination of nature, culture and at the end of the day accomplishing something amazing that makes this experience special.
