Welcome To Recommendations
for Self-Guided Hiking Tours in the Alps

Hiking in Switzerland is a hiker’s dream. The Swiss Alps offer a spectacular variety of deep valleys, snow-capped peaks with a network of well maintained safe trails for the average hiker either self-guided or with a guide.

Swiss Alpine Hiking includes broad above-timberline alpine tundra below the snow-line to quiet forested valley farmlands interspersed with quaint Swiss Alpine villages with a thousand year history with four living European cultures.

The Haute Route in Switzerland, especially, offers a unique combination of high altitude hut to hut hiking and village hotels on this famous trek of 108 miles from Chamonix, France to Zermatt, Switzerland.

Enjoy self-guided hiking with your own group of friends, and hike at your own pace in the Swiss Alps, or other countries and form your own group with a guide which we can provide to lead you in Swiss Alpine hiking on dates that you set.
