Adventure and Rest

in Perfect Balance

You’ve dreamed of these moments in the Alps.

You wake up in a remote mountain inn high above the valley floor. Stretch and slide into your slippers. Chat with your innkeeper over a hearty breakfast. The views from the dining room are hardly real – too good to be true. Then you hit the trail, through meadows and flowers and streams. It is real. You soak in the crisp morning air, the mist swirling through the peaks. The miles roll along under your boots until you stop at a hut for lunch and a drink. Congratulate yourself on how perfect this is.  Gaze at the cows.  Do they feel the beauty?  Do they know? Hike some more until you reach your next stop.  Finally a huge dinner, a nightcap, the most comfortable bed, the most relaxing dreams.

Of a place so true to itself, it invites you to relax and be true to yourself, too.

The Alps are majestic, true, but they are so much more.  The freedom to hike all day, to breathe the fresh mountain air, to drink from the streams, to explore, to learn, to love, to soar.  We have our favorites, many of them, and we’d like to share them.  Come hike with us.

We’re here to make your dreams of the Alps come true.

In September 2022 my husband and I traveled with Alpinehikers for a 16-day customized trip in Switzerland. We originally contacted an independent travel agent to assist with the non-hiking portions of our travels but quickly realized the depth of the Alpinehikers staff’s knowledge of Switzerland. We had Alpinehikers book all of our hotel accommodations, in-country transportation, and hiking tours (group and self-guided). We booked our own air travel. The Alpinehikers’ trip pricing was less than the local travel agent quoted and the service and travel advice was outstanding.

We began with the Guided Best of Bernese tour, our first hiking tour and we were spoiled. We had a group of 13 hikers since Covid created pent-up demand to travel but with two guides we were able to hike at our desired pace. The guides were well-informed, efficient, enthusiastic and managed every need we had including adjusting our hikes based on the weather. The lunches they distributed before each morning’s hike were delightful surprises made with local ingredients and always included chocolate treats. They provided local history, encouragement on the steeper climbs, and timely breaks at the best lunch patios and beer gardens en route. The housing accommodations were in comfortable inns with amazing views and included delicious meals. The Alps were breathtaking and we enjoyed the camaraderie with our fellow hikers.

The second part of our trip was self-guided in the Zermatt area. We were grateful that our Bernese guides assessed our capabilities and suggested more challenging hikes than what our itinerary had listed. Again, the accommodations were clean, comfortable, quiet, interesting, and convenient to transportation. The updated hikes provided great stories to tell back home. It was a great comfort that Alpinehikers had a person in the country and available via phone in the event that we needed support. Alpinehikers made this bucket list item the trip of a lifetime.

We highly recommend Alpinehikers!
