Each one of our guided luxury mountain travel adventures, whether it be a ski safari in winter or hiking safari in summer, is personalized, off the beaten track and far from the crowds. A pure, magical adventure to connect you with nature.
A hike or ski safari takes you into the Alpine wilderness, much like an African safari. It is guided and run by qualified specialists who have in-depth knowledge of the mountain, its dangers and how to make the most of any weather conditions.
Your guided luxury mountain travel experience will include history, local culture and luxury accommodation at the end of the day, drawn from an unrivalled network of the best hotel and restaurants in the Alps. Whatever your fitness level, our goal is to make luxury mountain travel in the European Alps available to you. Whether you’re looking for a ski touring extravaganza, the snowboarding expedition of a lifetime, a heli ski safari with never-ending descents, a sojourn away from the tourist crowds, or hiking through flowering pastures and ancient villages, SwisSkiSafari can arrange it for you.
For unique, private guided luxury moutain travel where the world can’t find you, look no further. SwissSkiSafari is your answer. Get in touch and we’ll take you on an unforgettable holiday in the Alps.
Living in the Alps exactly where we operate means we benefit from decades of local knowledge. Our 50 years of experience between us has proven that the best guided mountain travel adventures involve crossing national frontiers.
The perfect guided hike, snowboard or ski safari may be several days skiing or hiking through Italy, Switzerland and France. Or it could be a week based in a chalet, each day discovering the delights of backcountry skiing, hiking little known paths, ski touring or snowboarding isolated descents.
On each guided mountain travel adventure we like to bring our guests to charming local restaurants, luxury mountain huts, and weave history and local culture into every trip.
Being on the ground, in the region means we have the ability to turn imagination into reality by opening doors through our local network. This is what makes us different. We handle every detail of your luxury mountain travel. We design, research and guide you on what is often a logistically intense combination of details, to create the ultimate mountain experience.
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 for your mountain travel experience.
Between the Eiger, Matterhorn and the Mont Blanc our team will encourage you to try things you have never tried, or even knew you were capable of. We will introduce you to the local eateries off the beaten path and drink, dine and laugh with the locals. Our specialized knowledge, qualified mountain guides and trip planning expertise push the bar higher in guided luxury mountain travel.
Our unique, tailor made trips are on par with the price of many generic group trips run by large companies because of our small, locally located structure.
A privately guided mountain travel experience requires specialist knowledge, detailed planning, risk assessment, security and logistics. Add to this a skilled blend of personalisation and luxury and you achieve the perfect choreography for luxury mountain travel.
Specialised itineraries require time, legwork, expertise and professionally qualified mountain guides, which comes at a price. Add to that the actual cost of the hotels and trip ingredients you choose. You pay us a single amount, we pay everyone else. We provide everything (and more) that you have asked for, and replace one route with another as Mother Nature dictates, ensuring you have the best mountain travel experience, whatever the weather.
The combination of being small, living in the region where we operate, handpicked qualified experts and local knowledge ensures a unique itinerary of the highest quality and attention to detail.

"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!"
"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."
"Thank you so much for this magical experience. In retrospect, our trip took barely a week, but it was absolutely all absorbing. I knew there was something out there we needed to do, without being able to properly define it. But you somehow got it and now I know what it was. The two days at the Haute Route stood at the heart of this experience, where we touched our limits. This wasn’t the day yet, but I felt we were close, and I am so happy we got it done before it was out of reach. You planned and structured everything to the max, there were no empty spaces, no time wasted. We are happy and fulfilled. And totally trashed."
"Thank you for organizing and being part of a fantastic trip, we will all remember it for the rest of our lives as one of the best picturesque trips ever."
"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."
"Thanks again for a great time in your beautiful mountains. It is nice to be home in our respective houses but what an adventure we had with you. Thank you for taking such good care of us, challenging us and exposing us to some of the many treasures of Switzerland and Italy. It was a great experience!"
"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.
