Our environmental policy.

Why this holiday makes a difference.

By choosing our trekking or snowshoeing holiday you will be helping to sustain the local economy of the Alpine environment; which in modern times has suffered a massive depopulation. 

We introduce you to local foods and local artiginal crafts as well as supporting local alpine refuges which are threatened with closure if visitor numbers decrease. (These provide a valuable safety role but in modern times have to prove their viability economically)

Trekking and snowshoeing cause minimal environmental damage and you have the opportunity to learn about and see the wildlife in the area.

Our trips take in two nature reserves and open a window to an overlooked region. 

We are in the heart of Europe and we can demonstrate that to have a high altitude exciting experience need not involve costly and damaging long haul flights.

Our small group size enables us to adapt and be flexible without causing excess damage to the local environment.



Make tracks off the beaten tourist trail! Discxover the paths less trod but none the less spectacular and exciting!

Walking &Trekking.

We are in prime walking/trekking country.With three nature reserves close by and plenty of mountain tracks and trails to follow.

We can arrange walking trips to suit you or your group.

We are located on the GTA (Grand Transalpine Route) and it is possible to climb to over 3000m in altitude!

We have our own qualified resident guide who will be more than happy to show you the area.

Walking and trekking can be done almost all year round. The best weather is from April until late October.

From mid April to June Bird spotting and wild flowers are at their best. Mid September until mid October is an ideal time to go deer spotting. High summer is ideal for the higher peaks which can still be covered in snow!
