The 26 cantons of Switzerland are located in central Europe, which is bordered by Germany to the north, Austria and Liechtenstein to the east, Italy to the south, and France to the west. The landlocked country is elevated on top of the Alps, the Swiss Plateau, and the Jura mountains.

My daughter (17), son (16) and I (53) had a brilliant time over four demanding days of hiking along
parts of the TMB, led by our excellent guide Dave. He extended the routes to give us the best possible experience, matched to our fitness and ability. The accommodation in Refuges was great throughout and my teenagers particularly loved Happy Tracks’ Refuge Le Peuty in Trient. Anja and Raphy made us welcome and it had a lovely atmosphere. If you are fit enough, its hard to beat this trip.
Five amazing days ,professional and friendly service. Keep Calm and Climbing with Sebastien Lauren
Hiking with Noe was a true highlight of our trip! He was knowledgeable and warm–building an itinerary that worked just
for us! Despite the rain in the morning, we had the best time walking with Noe and would recommend anyone consider doing the same! Thank you so much, Noe!
I can’t recommend Raphy highly enough. Good company and the magic ability to know who needs help and who needs
to just get on with it themselves. Great choice of hikes with stupendous scenery.
Just completed the 4 day Mont Blanc highlights tour and had the most amazing time. Raphael and Anja are outstanding
and supported us throughout our journey. Raphael is the best mountain guide knowing exactly when to support and when to push. Simply wonderful business
Die Tour Mont Blanc in der Gruppe mit Raffael als Bergführer war einfach wunderbar. Schon beim Buchen haben Anja und
Raffael super schnell und freundlich geantwortet. Die Zeit vor Ort in der Gruppe war fantastisch – die Wege gut ausgesucht, die Hütten urig, die Atmosphäre motivierend. – Man hätte sich nicht mehr wünschen können. Und dann haben uns beide auch noch mit sehr leckeren Menüs in den Selbstversorger-Hütten überrascht. Die Crepes mit selbst gesammelten Himbeeren und Blaubeeren mit weißer Schokalade im Sahne-Bett waren mein Favorit. Vielen Dank, dass Ihr Euch so ins Zeug gelegt habt. Die schönen Erinnerungen klingen noch nach!
