Alpine Interface is a small, family-run organization, specializing in guided hiking tours, trekking/ walking and sea kayaking adventures in the Alps, Europe, Americas and in the Himalayan country of Nepal.
The company is owned and operated by Karin Stubenvoll and Louis Marino.
Louis is not only the owner of the company, but also the lead guide, responsible for the smooth operation and high quality of all our guided hiking trips, new itineraries, and our special customer care, the main reason why we have so many returning clients.
Karin is the Office Manager, responsible for the administrative side, overseeing website, design and brochures, bookings, reservations, and lots more. She really does all of the work!
In 2005, Karin and Louis moved to the Canadian Rockies with their 6-month old daughter in order to explore the wilderness of the Canadian west, but also to be closer to their clients, most of whom reside in North America.
In the winter months, the office is located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies in the small town of Canmore, Alberta, the gateway to Banff National Park. Summers are spent in the Chamonix Valley of France, which enables a seamless transition from administrative operations to hands-on guiding of European destinations.
We only use IFMGA mountain guides and International Mountain Leaders, both of which are members of the UIAA.
From hiking the majestic trails of the Alps in intimate groups of no more than 8 people per trek, to sipping wine in Provence after a day exploring the maquis, to refreshing swims in the Mediterranean Sea, our journeys give you ample opportunities to make your dream holiday come true.
We can also customize nearly any destination within our area of expertise, working around your dates, group size, and budget.
Our trekking, climbing and sea kayaking trips to Patagonia, Baja Mexico, Russia and Nepal contribute to our quest to add exciting adventures and cultural journeys each year, allowing you to travel in safety, relishing the memories of new destinations and friendships made.
