Base Villages

Choose an Alpine Adventure Base Village

Alpine Adventures Trails Tours are structured around extended stays in charming mountain hamlets and villages in the Alps of Switzerland and Austria, as well as the Isle of Skye. Explore the villages in the Alps, and the magical Isle of Skye with the help of Alpine Adventure Trails Tours.

Each base village will treat you to an entirely unique experience on your guided, self-guided, or hybrid tour. From the film-famed village of Murren to Zermatt all of our base villages will give you memories that will last a lifetime. On top of staying at family-owned inns and chalets, you’ll live like a local and explore the path less taken during your trail tour. There’s no better way to explore the Alps and Scotland.
