Hikers explore the impressive Brenta Dolomites

Crossing of the Alps with luggage transfer

Hiking across the Alps by foot is one of the absolute top trends in the hiking industry. If you dare to dream a little bigger and want to challenge yourself, our more demanding Alpine crossings and trekking tours are just the thing. Our new crossing of the Alps is particularly impressive along the popular E5 Long-Distance Hiking Path. This trekking holiday is considered the „most beautiful of all Alpine crossings“ and takes you from Bavaria to South Tyrol in eight days.

Hiking across the Alps from Munich to Venice

Several of our hiking holidays leading across the Alps are also possible with a good basic fitness level and without pronounced alpine experience. You can experience crossing the Alps in a particularly comfortable way on our four completely independent, consecutive hiking holidays from Munich to Venice. Two of these eight-day tours with luggage transfer are assigned our hiking category ‚Walking‘, and another two the hiking category ‚Mountain hiking‘. Decide individually whether you would like to experience one of these active holidays, or maybe even hike all 8-day tours at once.

Enjoyable hiking holidays for every taste: Hiking & Wine

Have you ever been on a leisurely wine hiking holiday? Another trend to explore marvelous wine regions individually and at your own pace. Our hiking tours for wine connoisseurs take you along the most stunning bliss routes and to fabulous wine regions throughout Europe. A wonderful wine region best explored by foot is the hiking region of the Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany. Whether on our Rhine walking: Mainz - Koblenz or on a short hiking holiday Rhine walking: Rüdesheim - St. Goarshausen, 5 days – enjoyment is guaranteed when hiking on the Rheinsteig Trail. Our wine route takes you further into the neighboring country of Austria. Here, too, active connoisseurs get their money’s worth. The walking holiday on the World Heritage Trail Wachau with Charm, 8 days ensures a successful wine hiking holiday in the UNESCO World Heritage region Wachau with cultural highlights, special hospitality, and wonderful cuisine.

A little further South there are equally wonderful spots for wine connoisseurs. The beautiful wine-growing regions in South Tyrol, especially the walking tour South Tyrolean Wine & Alpine Pasture Trail, 7 days, score with picturesque hiking trails and a mild climate. Now the moderate walking tour takes you further to the country where real gourmets experience a wonderful balance of exercise and culinary delights – France. On our moderate walking holiday in Burgundy, the excellent Burgundy wine is waiting to be sampled by you. Even in the more southern regions, such as Mallorca, there are fantastic hiking routes, which lead to wonderful spots and wineries. Whether it is Mallorca Finca-Walking with Charm or the somewhat more demanding hiking tour Mallorca - Long-distance hiking trail GR 221, the sunny Balearic island guarantees plenty of culinary bliss moments. Being active and enjoying the best wines of your destination – there is hardly a finer way to experience a hike.
