eNews and Holiday Updates - our email newsletters

We offer our general email newsletter, eNews, plus for each of the areas we visit a Holiday Update with more specific news. We send each email roughly 4 times per year. Please subscribe to as many emails as you wish.

About eNews

Depending on what's been happening and on the time of year, eNews will include late availability for our trips: places available on forthcoming scheduled guided trips, or for self-guided and private guided trips an indication of possibilities in the months ahead.

Typically we are researching two or three new holidays at any time. Also in eNews we'll give you notice of all such trips in the pipeline and fresh out of it. If you're looking out for a particular new trip, subscribing to eNews will keep you alert to this.

eNews is also where we tell you of any developments at Alpine Exploratory; new associations, new ideas, and any big moves we might make.

About Holiday Updates

Our Holiday Updates let us go into greater detail about each of the areas we cover. One Holiday Update covers one trek or area, so for example our Tour du Mont Blanc email covers all our TMB trips: guided and self-guided, plus our North and South weeks.

Recent research on the route goes into Holiday Updates too; if we're adding a new variant to our route then we give news of this. We also mention tweaks to our standard itineraries, as we refine things according to what's happening on the ground.

A more detailed note on how availability is looking into the coming season is possible too in Holiday Notes. The picture differs markedly among our various routes, and year to year.

Thank you for your interest - we hope you enjoy the emails.
