Discover spectacular alpine scenery on foot!

If you’d like to experience more than just the path at your feet. Combine healthy physical exercise with discovery of an inspiring natural environment. Or simply switch off from day-to-day stresses and enjoy the calm of mountain scenery in the company of like-minded people…

Then join me for a guided hike – in English, en français, auf Deutsch. For a day, weekend, long weekend or full week.

COVID-19 pandemic

As it is currently forbidden to work as a mountain leader, I am very sorry that I cannot currently offer any guided walks. I am nevertheless leaving my planned programme online, and open for registrations, in the hope that I will soon be able to resume these activities.

I will keep you informed and, in any case, will indicate “cancelled” for specific hikes if I know already that they cannot take place. Stay well during this difficult period and I’ll look forward to seeing you again in the mountains later in the season!

Day hikes

Below are the dates and short descriptions of my forthcoming single-day tours. You can also download a pdf summary here.

The numbers of stars indicates the level of difficulty. All start and end points are accessible by public transport. Itineraries may vary depending on conditions and weather. Group size 6–10.

Sign up for an outing any time, but at the latest by the deadline of 20.00 on the Thursday beforehand. Join my mailing list to receive full details for the day earlier in the week, including start time,meeting point, itinerary, practical checklist (for rucksack and clothes) and estimated finish time.
