Schedule of our walking holidays

Welcome to our 2024 schedule

Simon Stevens at Alpine Exploratory Welcome! We've been planning our 2024 and we'll be adding the Alta Via 2, in advance of a bigger batch of new trips that we hope to announce this time next year. All our trips are available self-guided or privately guided, where we book your choice of dates for yourself, family or friends. For 2024 we also offer scheduled guided trips on the Tour du Mont Blanc, Alta Via 1, the Walker's Haute Route, the Vanoise, and the Via Alpina. See you in 2024!

Walking Holidays in the Alps

Starting in the West, our Tour du Mont Blanc is a circuit of the massif bordered by France, Italy and Switzerland. Just to the South, in the Vanoise National Park is our new Tour of the Vanoise trip. Our Walker's Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt strikes out East across the Swiss Valais. Further North in Switzerland and making a full East to West crossing of the country is the Via Alpina. Heading East into Austria we offer the Adlerweg through the Austrian Tyrol. South into Italy we trek the Alta Via 1 and finally at the South Eastern end of the Alpine chain are the Julian Alps, the fabulously rocky and colourful hills of Slovenia.

New for 2024 in the Alps
For 2024 we offer our new Alta Via 2 North in the Alps, similar to the AV1 but harder! Our route is just the Northern half of the trail, with a minor diversion on one stage to avoid the Via Ferratae leading onto the Sella massif. It'll be 7 stages and 8 nights, offering an exciting expansion to our Dolomites coverage!

Walking Holidays in Scandinavia

Our Jotunheimen Tour is a circuit of the highest and boldest national park in Norway. The hut system is outstanding, giving you a real flavor of Norwegian mountain culture. We also offer an extended version of the tour which ventures south into the wilder areas of the Jotunheimen National Park. In Sweden we walk the first week of the spectacular Kungsleden trail, situated in the far North within the Arctic Circle. Staying in a mixture of catered and self-catered huts, this trail feels remote and wild.

New for 2024 in Scandinavia
There are no new trips for 2024 in Scandinavia, as during 2024 we will visit Norway's Lofoten for a third time, in advance of this new trip for 2025!

We're always working on new trips. View our 'In the Pipeline' for more information:

Walking Holidays in the UK & Ireland

Our West Highland Way and Affric Kintail Way explore the Highlands of Scotland, being the popular treks from Glasgow to Fort William and through the remote Glen Affric. In the Outer Hebrides we trek the Hebridean Way. In Wales we offer the Snowdonia Way, a trek through the heart of Wales' mountians. Our other three routes are in Northern England where the Coast to Coast visits sections of the other two, the Pennine Way and our own Lake District Tour.

New for 2024 in the UK & Ireland
No new trips in the UK or Ireland for 2024, as we get used to the fabulous Kerry Way, our first trip in Ireland.
