The Team

Our guides all hold a training as hiking leaders. The 2-3 year training may only be carried out by authorized institutions, including the Swiss Mountain Guide Association and the Hiking Trails Graubünden. In addition to safety-related and medical topics, much emphasis is placed on leading groups and communicating knowledge about nature, culture, traditions and history. In addition, there are practice days out in the field. Moreover, our guides have a lot of experience and know our offers in detail. We guarantee you an exciting experience.
