Central Europe
Enjoy the alpine paradise and the thrill of reaching high alpine peaks. Escape to wilderness and get a true sense of freedom. A network of footpath and cable cars helps us explore this perfect alpine area, taking us through meadows, scattered woodland and beside mountain streams, along ridges and panoramic paths, even to peaks. There are magnificent views over the glaciers lying cradled beneath the mighty summits that feed them your efforts will be well rewarded.
