Additionally there will be many opportunities to see wildlife such as deer, chamois, marmots, eagles and wild boar – as well as gaze at the fantastic scenery.

``There was a group of 4 of us that booked an alpine holiday, ranging from mid 40's to early 50's. We all felt very comfortable hiking with our guide Duncan. Each morning before our hike, he pulled out a map to show us where we were going and throughout the day to show our progress. Duncan was also energetic, fun and a pleasure to be around and there was lots of laughter and smiles. He set a comfortable pace for everyone and paid attention to how each member in the group was with the pace. As a result we would definitely book a trip with Alpine Walks in the future and we are confident in recommending Duncan as a mountain guide. ``
