Each one of our ski, boarding and hiking safaris in the European Alps is crafted from scratch and tailored to your wishes.
Whatever your level, our goal is to make the remote high mountain environment available to you in winter and summer.
We help you safely uncover local secrets and experiences in corners of the Alps you could never reach on your own.
The best routes have no recognition for national frontiers. Escape the tourist trails and discover clever, usually inaccessible mountain routes and untouched terrain completely off the beaten track. We will guide you to corners of the Alps in Switzerland, Italy and France that you would never find on your own. Along these routes you will ski, snowboard, hike or bike routes that will lead you to superb accommodation you didn’t even know existed.
Our qualified mountain guides will encourage you every step of the way. Your guide will not only help you through your first backcountry nerves, but also find you that virgin powder, help you climb a summit or push you to achieve more on your bike. You will quickly realise the value of accessing this wild part of the Alps thanks to your expert guide.
A perfectly cozy chalet, a decadent, uber-modern hotel, an authentic rustic mountain cabin or a luxury snow-topped treehouse: take your pick or choose them all. Between the Eiger, Matterhorn and the Mont Blanc we arrange accommodation to suit your style and itinerary. Our team will introduce you to the local eateries off the beaten path. Drink, dine and laugh with the locals when we introduce you as an extension of our family, which is how you will be treated.
For some serious ‘me-time’ at the end of your day, enjoy a sumptuous massage and beauty treatments. Experience former Roman thermal springs and whirlpools as well as Turkish baths and saunas: the perfect way to end your luxury Alpine adventure.
"I wanted to thank you for this memorable trip. Everything including the weather was really perfect/exceeded all my expectations. Big hug et à bientôt!" Antoine 2015"
"Danielle, thank you for organizing a fabulous trip. You thought of and organized every detail. The little things really mattered and you always took care of them and thought/planned ahead. You exploited your excellent relationships and local knowledge to make our experience that much more special. We all really appreciated your extremely high commitment to service and your ability to respond to changing conditions and deliver a great outcome. Finally, you are a lot of fun to be with. We all came away admiring you and your business. I will recommend you without reservation. With very best regards"
"We had the very best time with you, it was such fun and it felt like we had been friends for ages! Your organisation and planning just so exceeded our expectations and the great times with you and Ed and Pierrot was truly awesome."
"Cela a été un moment remarquable de surprise, de joie avec mes enfants, un superbe hébergement, un repas extraordinaire !!! Même mon fils a tout mangé. Remarquables cantatrices, une chef extraordinaire, des attentions pour les enfants extras, même la course après l'hélicoptère a été "un début de voyage à la James Bond." Tout était parfait, mon cœur battait très fort de joie, d'amour et d’étonnement."
"Just a quick note to say thanks for organising this trip - just got back and had an excellent time!"
"Your info rings sooooo true. Yes........ you are family and we are too and that's exactly what it felt like when we travelled on our fabulous journey skisafari with you!"
"A great taste of the regional specialties Pinch me moment: The rock climbing and glacier walks were truly memorable"
"2 smashed and exhausted but elated guys just finished their ascent and descent and are safe and well. For both of us this was the most physically and mentally challenging thing we've done. We climbed not with our bodies which were finished long ago but with our minds, there is something truly wonderful about being able to think about nothing else in the world but where you will put your next step and the mountain and conditions allow you nothing else. You are forced to be completely in the moment, and to do it together father and son is the greatest of blessings. Danielle and the guides Paul and Pascal were absolutely marvellous taking care of our every need."
"Once again, many thanks for arranging this, we appreciate that you adapted the planned itinerary to accommodate our needs, and we really enjoyed doing something totally different!"
"Courmayeur was beautiful, we really enjoyed exploring the town and eating (and drinking) in the local restaurants"
"We went up a fabulous mountain trail on ski shoes - eating local bread, meat and cheese washed down with red wine on top of a mountain next to a restaurant buried in the snow was an experience we'll remember forever."
"A great mixture of exercise and relaxation."
"SwisSkiSafari choppers drop off skiers near the top of peaks, and then guides lead them down runs that seem to go on forever. In some cases, you'll get a three-plus-hour run descending more than 8,000 vertical feet from summit to valley floor in stunningly beautiful country. Now that's skiing"
It isn’t a race.
It’s not about being the fittest, fastest or the flashiest,
It’s about connecting with the incredible nature of the Alps.
