Living in the moment with a luxury hiking vacation: difficult on earth, easy in the mountain. Our summer guided tours in the European Alps begin when the snow melts. Combining generations of mountain experience and refined European hospitality, we’ll take you from village to village on alpine trails. We want to inspire, revitalize and help each guest leave our mountains with a new outlook.
Our summer trips are more relaxed than our winter ones but exploring the mountains in a T-shirt instead of a ski vest is no less exciting. On your mountain hiking safari, you will cross from Switzerland into Italy and France on foot. All this happens while you’re learning about centuries of alpine culture, staying in the most luxurious hand-picked mountain lodges and dining on sumptuous local delicacies.
Whether you’re pushing yourself up the Matterhorn or strolling through Alpine pastures bustling with wild animals, hiking is the best way for all age groups to discover the Alps. Your trip will be designed according to whether you want to take on a challenge, or simply open your eyes to the extraordinary alpine air and the immense mountain views and picturesque villages around you. Whether you are a first-time hiker or a seasoned summer mountaineer – we can design the perfect trip for you.
Mountaineering in Europe is no longer simply trying to reach the top of un-touched peaks, it has evolved into different disciplines including rock-craft, climbing, tackling snow and ice. Each of these requires experience, athletic ability, and technical knowledge to maintain safety. They cannot be attempted alone. These trips are designed specifically for you as an introduction to Alpinism, teaching you the basics needed to progress to the next level.
Alpine mountain hiking is a time honoured tradition in Europe. The physical challenge, mountain air, and views create a unique atmosphere that’s unlike anywhere in the world. There are pristine hiking routes for most levels of physical ability, and your guide will determine which one is best given your own level of fitness and your goals. It’s our objective to create an experience that’s challenging, rewarding, and deeply satisfying.
Exploring the Alps on foot will be a challenging & fulfilling experience. Our guides live in the region, know the mountains extremely well and will reveal incredible views, breathtaking environments, and little-known routes that will make your trip unforgettable. SwisSkiSafari designs each trip from the ground up for each individual client, and no two trips are alike.
