Alpenwild organized a custom tour of the Haute Route for us and 12 of our friends from across the U.S. From the planning to the execution, the Alpenwild crew did a superlative job for a very reasonable cost. The Alpenwild staff saw to virtually every detail, including our travel to and from the guided portion of the trip. If you're thinking about a guided hiking trip in the Alps, you owe it to yourself to give these guys a call. - V.K., California

When your schedule doesn't match ours, consider a custom designed trip. You'll enjoy all the benefits of our experience hiking in the Swiss Alps and still receive exceptional value.

Any of our regularly scheduled group tours can be tailored and customized for a private group, educational program, or family, often for as few as four people. Hiking in the Swiss Alps, a Swiss farm stay, or an Alpenwild multisport adventure can be a great vacation for an extended family group.

We can also customize a walking or hiking tour based on your interests whether it's wildflowers, glaciers, cheese making, mountaineering, butterflies, mineralogy, family history, or chocolate.

What is a Private Departure?

A private departure is an Alpenwild privately guided trip designed just for you. Any trip we offer on our website can be offered for a private group.

Can a Family or Small Group Book a Private Departure?

If the trip dates on our website don’t match your available dates a private departure gives you total flexibility. We can offer many of our trips for a group of less than 6 people. Just give Alpenwild a call and we can discuss the options.

What is the Cost of a Private Departure?

You may be surprised to find that a private departure costs about the same as the trips offered on our website. The exact price depends on the size of the group and the trip features you choose. Call an Alpenwild specialist for a no-obligation free quote.

Can You Customize a Private Departure?

Yes. You can use the same itinerary as our other trips, or you can add days, use different hotels, or even hand pick your guides. Maybe you're interested in a Scenic Alps by Rail tour with a group of close friends, or a classic trek on the Haute Route to celebrate your birthday in style. If you're a food lover, then a custom version of our food tours would be right down your alley.

How do I Arrange a Private Departure?

It’s easy—just give us a call or drop us an email to get things going. We'll take it from there. We can assist you with marketing the trip to participants, and handling all trip reservations and payments. We can also work with trip participants on an individual basis to coordinate pre- and post-trip travel plans.

Contact us to Get Things Going.

An Alpenwild travel specialist would be happy to help you plan a private departure. Just call us at 1-801-226-9026 (US) or email us at info@alpenwild.com.
