Are you looking for a good hiking tour in Switzerland, Italy, France or Nepal?

If so, consider hiking with Alpinehikers. Hike the trails. Meet the locals. Dance with the cows.... Treat yourself to a hiking vacation you'll never forget!

We are specialists in small-group travel to Switzerland and the surrounding alpine areas, and spend every summer there ourselves. We offer guided hiking tours of Switzerland, the Dolomites, TMB, the Grand Canyon and Nepal, and self-guided tours for both hiking and non-hiking vacations.

Pictures and words can't begin to convey the richness and depth of an actual tour. Whether it's rounding a hill to gain a spectacular view, sharing wine, fondue, and laughter with new-found friends, or waking up to fresh mountain air and distant tinkling of cowbells - a Switzerland hiking tour is something that needs to be experienced yourself to be fully appreciated.

Switzerland's mountains may seem timeless, but each tour is unique. New personalities, outstanding hikes, and exciting discoveries make each tour a one-of-a-kind adventure. We offer trips to classic must-see destinations and many hidden gems that come from an intimate knowledge of the region.

Now that I seem to be acclimated and back to reality I want to express a deep THANK YOU for planning such a wonderful Swiss experience for us. Everything was perfect. The hotels were awesome, the hiking memorable, the scenery and views unbelievable, the food oh so good, and the trains and other modes of transportation unlike anything we have ever experienced. What else can I say. J and I are singing your praises to everyone we talk with about our trip. You did a wonderful job and we wouldn't change one thing. We met a few other 'self-guided' Alpine Hikers while in Murren and they all had the same wonderful comments to make. Once again, thank you for all of your hard work in sending us on a trip of a lifetime.

I cannot begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed my trip and my hikes. It was the best vacation in my life. Everything, the landscape, the mountains, the forests, the trails, cows. sheep, goats, the rich mountain vegetation, flora and fauna.......all was breathtaking. My heart melted to see such beauty.

Perched precariously along the edge of a 3000-foot cliff and looming over the waterfall-filled Lauterbrunnen Valley, the reclusive Swiss village of Mürren isn't your typical tourist destination. To get there, you board a rickety-looking cog rail train that climbs the cliff wall with the determination of a roller coaster...
