If you are looking for a perfect natural setting, fresh mountain air and beautiful crystalline lakes, Tyrol has them all. Join me on this 6 day guided hiking trip and discover this unique beauty  in the heart of the Alps.

Located in northern Italy and western Austria, Tyrol is a historical region in the Alps. On this trip, we will cover 24,000 kilometres of marked hiking and mountain paths as we admire the spectacular views of the Tyrolean Mountains.

About the Guide

 
 

I'm a UIMLA-certified leader and have been sharing my passion for nature and the mountains for the last 30 years. I love to venture into isolated and quiet places to discover new environments, new panoramas...everything nature has to offer.

I love to share these precious moments during hikes or treks and help you discover life's subtleties by walking towards the unknown, both in France and abroad. This is why I became a mountain leader.

Hiking will be the starting point of all our adventures and will allow us to cook wild plants or mushrooms, watch the stars at night, draw, photograph or film all that is ephemeral in nature. But we will also find the time to relax and take in a beautiful moment.
