The Alps are the perfect playground for adventurers of all abilities. Just a short hop from most European cities, it’s accessibility makes it ideal for those pressed for time. But, if you want to gain a deeper understanding of these mountains, and challenge yourself on the most iconic peaks, then it’s a worthwhile destination for any length of time.
Perhaps you’ve been mesmerised by the striking black pyramid of the Matterhorn, and want to build up your skills with a view to climbing it for yourself. We will pair you with one of our expert Mountain Guides, chosen not just for their technical ability, but their temperament and personality too. They will work on a training programme with you, and with their expert local knowledge, equip you with the necessary skills over the space of several short trips. They even know the best places to eat in town, and where best to spend downtime.
The Alps is also a great training ground for those who wish to go to higher altitudes, and all of the skills needed to tackle some of the world’s highest mountains can be learnt in this more controlled arena. The access provided by mechanical uplift means you can get in to (and out of) the mountains quickly and effectively, and be back in the valley for a good meal by dusk.
These factors make it hard to beat, and whatever your objective, we will shape a trip around your ideas.
