21 Feb It’s time… we are planning our hiking tours in Europe
When the days get longer and the sun starts to be a constant companion we start to think about what we love about hiking tours in Europe.
Is it the warm days, the cute alpine villages, the stunning mountain views, the amazing meals and authentic restaurants? Or is it the charming hotels, great wine, fresh air and that feeling of freedom which comes from not thinking about anything except putting one foot in front of the other? Hmmmm it is really tough to work out what we like best about our hiking tours in Europe.
A cool beer on the terrace
I like to start by looking at the highlights of last season. After climbing to a mountain refuge for the night, the taste of a cool beer on the terrace at the end of the day as the sun was setting was a defining moment.
I certainly won’t forget two days on the haut route and the silence of crossing the glacier in the early hours of the morning between Switzerland and France.
The view from the window of the refuge after coming down from the highest refuge in the alps at 4555 metres, filled with the feeling of total satisfaction and achievement is another one.
The diversity of our hiking tours in Europe keeps us on our toes. These trips tick all of our boxes: great hotels, great food and wine and those mountains that just take your breath away.
