Self-Guided, Private Hiking & Walking Trips

For the more experienced hiker, self-guided tours offer satisfying alternatives to group hikes.
If you’re comfortable using maps and a compass and prefer to navigate solo, our self-guided trips may be for you. Contrary to popular opinion, “self-guided” doesn’t mean you have to do everything yourself. For example, many travel groups want to have all accommodation, luggage, and transportation arranged before they start on the trail. If you want to eliminate the hassles of trip planning but preserve your independence, our self-guided, independent hiking and walking trips are a good alternative.

In response to numerous inquiries, we have organized self-guided walking tours in the Alps, primarily for the Tour du Mont Blanc and the Walker’s Haute Route. We organize accommodation, luggage transport, rental cars, maps and background information – and obviously help you with trip planning, before and after your hiking trip. We also offer advice on what to see and where to go for all of our trips.

Below are some pricing categories for self-guided hikes in some areas, based on our published itineraries. Some of our trips are not that easily defined, please contact us if you’re interested in Slovenia, Tour de Monte Rosa, or the Essential Alps.
If you would like to customize below itinerary, please  also contact us and we are happy to advise you and customize a hiking trip for your group’s needs.
