Alpine Walks in Three Countries August 2019


The European Alps have an incredible network of mountain railways, cable cars and gondolas so you can access the mountains easily and experience the joy of the invigorating scenery without too much effort. Easy walks (classified as grade 1 & 2) in the Swiss Alps, the Austrian Tyrol and the Italian Dolomites, on well-maintained trails in the alpine meadows and valleys. Perhaps you will see the lively parade of farmers bringing their animals from high pastures to lower valleys for winter. Stay for three or four nights in five small villages, all providing a good base for exploration but within reach of the bigger towns of Lucerne and Innsbruck. Enjoy a range of regional delicacies including meat, cheese and an array of mouth-watering cakes. Join us for truly memorable walks in the mountains.

John Matheson will be your tour manager on this tour.  John has worked in the travel industry for over 40 years, the majority of these as a director of Calder & Lawson.  He has led many overseas walking tours and has travelled extensively in Europe. He escorted the group on this tour once before, thoroughly enjoyed the experience and is looking forward to helping you explore some special off the beaten track places in these countries . If you have any queries about the walk, give John a call.
