current offering

Summer 2024

Just successfully completed in early July the VIA ALPINA - 7 days' trek (see gallery) and already dreaming about a new 2025 edition. More details will follow!

See below the current offering which includes single or multi day hikes between July and early October :)


Note:

N. of participants: typically max. 6-8 pp. In case of larger groups, might be possible to arrange engaging multiple guides.

In most cases the arrival point is different from the departure point. The goal is to enjoy the most when being outdoors, with the possiblity to customize the trek routes. For these reasons no fixed end time is listed, suggesting to avoid cars and rather relying on Swiss public transportation for a more flexible experience.
