Experience the Alps

Dramatic Peaks, Lush Valleys, and Storybook Villages

Hike trails among the soaring peaks that inspired the world’s first mountaineers, explore hidden hamlets with flower-bedecked chalets, discover age-old mountain cultures, savor local culinary delights—this is the way to experience the Alps.

We offer one-of-a-kind hiking adventures in six alpine countries ( France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, and Germany ), all led by Trip Leaders who bring expertise, camaraderie, and fun to each journey. There are always two (and often three) Trip Leaders, and through them you get a superb “insider’s” experience, with introductions to people and places you would never find on your own.

Our innovative itineraries keep you off the beaten path (and on several, you’ll hike across the international borders!). On many of our Alps trips, you have a choice between two hiking options each day so you can hike at your own pace. And you’ll appreciate our selection of historic mountain inns and lodges, chosen for their warm welcome, great location, and access to the trails. Lace up your hiking boots and join us!

We had a great time hiking the Italian Alps and especially loved the variety of the hikes and the four different countries and cultures we experienced.

Thanks to the entire company for never failing to delight us!
Nancy F. (Bergamo to Innsbruck)
Excellent does not come close to describing my experiences on this trip. It was way beyond excellent for me. It was the best time of my life! The Alps were like a fantasy world and the guides made them real for me.
Susan I. (Great Alpine Traverse)
This was an ideal vacation for us: being in the mountains all day, at the peak of wildflower season, with two guides who were both knowledgeable and fun to be with, having a good hotel at night, and great French food in the evenings.
Guy A. (Mont Blanc to the Mediterranean)
A once in a life time experience where the beauty of the mountains, the quality of the food/lodging and the hiking challenge were just magnificent.
Nancy M. (Tour du Mont Blanc)
