Nestled in the heart of Europe, the Alps may not seem the most exotic mountains to visit. However, as the chocolate-box pretty foothills, decorated with ancient chalets, pine woods and lush meadows, give way to towering granite peaks carved by glaciers into sharp serrated ridges, this is a dramatic and majestic range of global prominence. The beautiful towns and villages scattered along the valleys allow us to explore the local culture while walking and trekking in remarkable comfort with truly fantastic cuisine. Meanwhile, the higher routes and passes offer serious challenge and adventure for those looking for some real tests in walking and trekking.
Exodus has been running trips to the Alpine regions for over 20 years. Our local team are centrally based in the Swiss Alps and have a wealth of experience and knowledge. Having previously worked as group leaders on Exodus holidays, they understand exactly what our clients are looking for in a trip and help us to create exciting itineraries to cater for this. Our range of walking and trekking holidays is extensive, covering the most spectacular parts of the Austrian, French, Italian and Swiss Alps and include ascents of some of the most magnificent and highest peaks in Europe.
