How We Travel

For over 30 years we have been leading exceptional hiking, walking, and trekking adventures in the Swiss Alps. All of our tours—hiking and walking, food and wine, and scenic rail tours—caputre the inspiring scenery, cultural vibrancy, and the undeniable romance of the Alps. 

Exceptional Hiking

The Alps is the greatest hiking and walking destination in the world. Breathtaking mountains, wildflowered meadows, powerful glaciers, surging waterfalls—the Alps has it all. Hiking in the Swiss Alps, exploring the Jungfrau trails, or walking below the Matterhorn from Zermatt is a hiker's dream. A hiking or walking vacation in the Alps, whether it's our Hiker's Haute Route, our Best of the Swiss Alps tour, the Dolomites or any of our other Alps hiking tours is a vacation experience you will treasure forever.

Hike with Friends. Hike with Experts.

The best way to experience the Alps is on foot, hiking or walking with a small group of friends, and with someone who knows and loves these spectacular mountains and valleys. We offer dozens of ways to do just that. And on our treks and hikes like the Tour du Mont Blanc and Exploring the Jungfrau, we shuttle your luggage, so that you can travel light, enjoy the mountains, and know that your bags are waiting for you at the hotel that evening. We measure our trips not by the miles, but by the friends we make.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for, we can arrange a guided custom trip just for you. And don't forget our self-guided hiking tours for great value and flexibility. We know Switzerland's greatest hiking regions inside and out—The Jungfrau, Valais, Appenzell, Engadine, Ticino—and each has magical appeal for hiking enthusiasts.

Scenic Rail Tours

The legendary trains of Switzerland are among the finest in the world, and the Swiss have perfected making mountains accessible. Their ingenious network of trains, rack railways, trams, and funiculars easily puts you in the midst of the most spectacular glaciers in the Alps and the highest peaks in Europe. On Alpenwild's Scenic Alps by Rail tour you'll experience the Glacier Express and discover the charms of other scenic routes such as the Bernina Express and the Goldenpass Line.
