Self-guided walking holidays in the Alps

Our 2018 season in the Alps runs from 1 July to 16 September, but many of our trips start later in July to guard against Spring snow. Our self-guided trips are available on your chosen dates; we don't have set start dates. Trek with friends or family, or go solo.

What does self-guided mean?
You guide yourself! We book your hotels and give you our routecards and maps. There is no leader and you are not in a group. You get straight to the best scenery and enjoy walking at your own pace.
