Trek in the Alps
Trek in the Alps
We run the Tour du Mont Blanc trek in the Alps for the more adventurous hiker. In particular we guide the higher level variant using mountains huts. Our leaders are International Mountain Leaders who have local knowledge of the areas where we work and in most cases live there too. The presence of a qualified professional who can not only offer guiding services in the mountains and book the accommodation in advance but also explain and describe the geology and geography of the region, the flora and fauna and not least the names of all the peaks!
Trekking in the Alps is a wonderful experience and holiday for the average fit hillwalker. Some hikes are harder than others but most regions have an excellent infrastructure of mountains huts and hotels lower down. There are good cable car systems and the routes are very well waymarked showing distances to towns and huts and clear directions. The hut managers will always have latest weather reports and the quality of food and drink is always going to be good and certainly filling.
One of the benefits of using the hut system is of course that the dormitories have beds with duvets and sheets and pillows, enabling you to hike a multi day trip with a rucksack and just your personal clothes. This allows for great flexibility and range and our role as a guiding company is to put together some of the well known routes and ensure the bookings are in place, as well as provide a professional mountain service so you can enjoy the views and physical challenge and beauty of the mountain wilderness without worrying about the logistics.
