The French Alps offer some of the most spectacular and impressive hiking in the world.
The Mont Blanc is the highest peak in the Alps, and the views of the Mont Blanc range are impressive.
Most of our guides, have been living, working and playing in the Chamonix valley for more than 15 years. They are all at least bilingual, and are the true local experts when it comes to hiking in Switzerland, France, Italy and Austria.
The Italian Alps are not as frequented as Switzerland and France, and therefore have kept many of their customs and local dialects. Wildlife is still abundant, the Gran Paradiso National Park has been one of the worlds’ first National Parks and is teeming with ibex and mountain goats.
The South Tyrol region of Italy (which was Austrian prior to the first World War) combines the best of the two worlds: teutonic precision with Italian hospitality. The limestone cliffs of the Dolomites stand sentinel above ancient villages and high alpine pastures. Sunsets burn red in these towering pillars of rock, formed millions of years ago from marine sediment.
Slovenia is the gem of Eastern Europe: The Julian Alps are beautiful and still off the beaten path,
and for the moment, we offer one trip that combines hiking in the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park, and sight-seeing and visits of Ljubljana, Bonhinj Lake and, of course, Bled, a fairy-tale village with its own castle and church on an island in the middle of the lake.
