Self Guided Walking Holidays in Switzerland
Our Switzerland walking holidays offer some iconic walks including different versions of the classic Tour du Mont Blanc, as well as hiking in the areas of Zermatt, Arolla and Engadin – from leisurely walks and overnights in comfortable hotels to strenuous hut-to-hut treks..
Considered one of the world’s most iconic trails, this is a demanding but non-technical trek which explores the best parts of the Alps between Arolla and Zermatt, filled with breathtaking Alpine scenery. You will spend the nights in comfortable private rooms and we will transfer your luggage between hotels on all walking days.
The High Valley of Engadine is called “the Pearl of the Alps” for a reason. It offers endless high-mountain sceneries with turquoise blue lakes, small valleys leading to sparkling glaciers and idyllic villages. This is a hike of an average level of difficulty and you can optionally shorten most stages using the excellent train and cable car network.
