A hiker’s heaven with absolute standout trekking peaks and routes
> xxxxxxxx <
The Alps is among the best hiking and trekking destinations in the world, and we’ve been exploring the area since our teens and used it as a playing ground for arranging other expeditions outside Europe. Since our big brother moved to Switzerland years ago, we’ve been fortunate to use Zürich as a base for arranging yearly hikes and high alpine treks to different branches of this vast mountain system.
We’ve done parts of all the classics: treks on the Charmonix-Zarmatt Haute Route, which is often categorized as a world-class, top-3 hike; treks in the Bernese Oberland region with views to lakes and tall waterfalls everywhere; and treks in the Matterhorn region, which links many of the iconic mountains of the Alps. We’ve also done other iconic treks, such as the Tour du Wildhorn, as well as hikes in France, Austria, Lichtenstein and Poland.
On this page we share mixed pictures from selected tours across the Alps, exploring the dazzling mountain scenery, crossing glaciers, looking for waterfalls and taking dips in ice-cold rivers, and enjoying the simple mountain cuisine.
