Self-Guided Tours

Create Your Own Alpine Adventure

Alpine Adventures Trails Tours is offering self guided trips, which combines the freedom of independent travel with the ease of not having to plan a vacation. An interview process allows us to assess and structure a trip based on personality, interest, and fitness level.

With 35 years of experience and as one of the oldest hiking tour operators in Switzerland, we can offer an off-the-beaten-path experience that’s as lavish or low key as you want to go. We handle all booking arrangements for hotels, rail passes, and excursions.

You’ll be outfitted with maps and descriptions of trails best suited for your fitness ability. Self-guided tours are not limited to our regular base villages, so truly, the sky is the limit.

We offer 4 levels of hiking:
easy, moderate, strenuous and mountaineering.
