For clients wanting something a little different, our bespoke holidays allow you to tell us exactly what you are looking for, from trek levels, to food requirements, dates, duration and of course, location. We can help you to realise your dream of hiking a well-known route, or walking a path less travelled. It's your choice, self-guided or guided with our local UIMLA International Mountain Leaders.
There are many reasons why people book our bespoke treks - from having complete freedom of choice, to having every need catered for.
Day hikes allow you to start and finish each mountain adventure from the same accommodation - you can enjoy spectacular walks on the mountains that can be started in the morning and finished in the same day.
Day hikes as part of an arranged program allow you to enjoy the beauty of walking in the mountains each day - and each new hiking trail presents new challenges and rewards. You will enjoy wonderfully different scenery on each day’s trek - whilst at the same time having the luxury and comfort of knowing exactly where you will be sleeping each night.
Alpine Trek Locations
The Alps are a vast chain of mountains spanning many countries in Europe and are breathtakingly beautiful at any time of year. You can choose to be based in Zermatt in the Swiss Alps, Courmayeur in Italy, or Chamonix Mont Blanc in France.
These authentic mountain towns have all the facilities you need to enjoy your holiday, on and off the hiking trails. Travelling to them is easy by car, train or aeroplane and they share 1000’s of kilometres of spectacular mountain trails.
Many of the best hikes in Europe can be accessed from these authentic Alpine villages.
Guided or Self Guided Treks
Trek with confidence. We plan your hikes in conjunction with you and take care of all the route planning, accommodation and administration. You then choose the level of assistance you need: you can choose to self-guide, with all the information you need for each days hike provided by us, or have a professional mountain guide with you on each of your day treks, making sure you gain the most from every day's hike in terms of safety, knowledge and ease.
Courmayeur, Chamonix Mont Blanc and Zermatt offer a multitude of attractions. Blessed with gloriously sunny weather for the majority of the hiking season you can select a well being option, perhaps a trip to a spa on the days that you aren’t hiking, explore museums, or go shopping. Shops specialise in local craft, gourmet foods, the best trekking and sports gear, even high-end haute couture. Have a look at our activities information...
