In the pipeline - forthcoming walking and trekking holidays
May 2013 Research is the key! We welcome suggestions for new routes; please let us know. Thank you.
... and the new trips that result!
The Dolomites in Italy were our destination for recces in September and October 2011. We are delighted that our high-level two-week trek, the Alta Via 1, had such a successful first season in summer 2012. Thank you to all our clients, new and returning, who trekked the AV1 with us.
New for 2013 are guided trips in the UK... whereas previously we have only offered guided trips in the Alps. We start with the West Highland Way. This is an exciting new approach for us.
In keeping with our base in Settle at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, Anna-Maria has tweaked our Tour of the Three Peaks trip to make it a neat and tidy three days long, with low and high options each day.
In another new project for Alpine Exploratory, we are introducing the Ridgeway for 2013, as our first trip in the South of England. Pete has been researching this 6-stage trek.
In the Alps, check out our new and exciting Tour du Val d'Anniviers planned by Joy and Simon, an easier trek taking 4 days in the same area as the Walker's Haute Route.
In the Lake District we now offer a modular trek that gives a full circuit of the Lakes, plus 4-stage treks in the East and the West to fit together with our existing North and South Lakes circuits. This was a brainwave from Anna-Maria, later developed with Chris and Simon.
Other ways to keep up to date
... and tasters of the new trips!
Austria will be our focus for summer 2013's research. The aim is to bring in a new trip for summer 2014 or 2014. In the trekking business as in many others, we plan ahead! This is especially necessary because of the short Alpine season in which to recce the routes.
We have ideas in mind for which parts of Austria to focus on, based on previous trips, and more details will appear here in due course. While the Alps hold vast potential for new destinations, the Austrian Alps remain perhaps the main notable area that we don't yet cover... so here we go!
We have a longer-term project in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. The idea will be to link islands with ferries and to cross the islands by foot. This is one for the future, provisionally 2014 onwards. It's an especially exciting trip. Full details will appear in due course.
