Brilliant hike through the Swiss Alps
My dog Blaze and I loved this hike. It was challenging with many steep climbs and sharp descents but the beautiful scenery made it totally worthwhile. Everything worked just as advertised. I highly recommend this company.

Alpine cottage in Grison
Very nice walk, which was sometimes very demanding. Good mixture between green fields, rocky hills, lakes and beautiful views.

Alpen-Panorama
Unserer Gruppe hat die Tour durch die Schweizer Alpen sehr gut gefallen, da die ausgesuchten Strecken sehr abwechslungsreich und auch durchaus herausfordernd waren. Die Aussicht war phänomenal, was noch dadurch gesteigert wurde, dass wir über weite Strecken ganz allein gewandert sind.
