Our philosophy

On the phone or on the tracks, we take care of you. First, we take the time to advise you and find the trip that matches perfectly your needs and wants. Then, as our groups are intentionally kept small (12 to exceptionally 14 participants), we are able to adapt the hiking rhythm to each of you. It also allows you a more intimate experience with the people and wildlife you encounter on your journey.

ACCOMMODATION

All our accommodations are booked in small Huts, Regional Inns or Hotels. They are carefully selected to ensure you a comfortable night’s rest at the heart of nature as well as a warm welcome and atmosphere for all the duration of your stay. Meals are varied (fresh supplies, local specialties)

dormitories, washbasin and shared toilets (showers or not)

Inns or transit accommodation:

bedrooms (2 to 8 people sharing), En suite or shared bathroom (shower and toilets)

Bed and breakfast or comfortable hotel:

Meals

Most of the lunches are picnic-style. If you book a circuit, they will contain energetic snacks for the day. Dinners are taken in the Huts, Inns or Hotels. We take a great care to ensure that all the food served during our trips is balanced quality food.

Trip leaders

Guides or instructors, they are all professionals. They organize your trip so that you can do what is most important: relax, enjoy the experience and have fun. They are all excellent ambassadors of their region and culture and will probably communicate you the envy to discover them.
