Adventures

Wild Alps

a 7 days bivouac adventure

Equiped with a tent, sleeping gear and food, we´ll head into the French and Swiss backcountry for a multi-day bivouac adventure. Once we leave civilization, the mountains are our habitat for the week, surrounded by and living in a wild Alpine environment. We only know what we encounter afterwards, but an adventure it will be, that's for sure!

Date:
19-25 Sept 2020

  • 7 days, 6 nights
  • 6 days guided hike
  • 5 nights bivi camp
  • 1 night chambre d'hôte

The trip

Daily life can be hectic and governed by routine and structure. But not here! We are guided by curiosity, the adventure and the nature around us. For six days we'll hike through forests, we'll climb peaks far above the treeline, we'll swim in lakes, we'll camp in the wilderness, we spot wildlife and we enjoy the starry sky above the campfire. Without a strictly defined plan, but with the freedom and flexibility to embrace adventure with both hands. The outdoor life is simple and only the essentials count. We'll move around, navigate, overcome the challenges of the wilderness. We make a fire and cook food, we purify water, we built our camp and do it over the next day. It's not the comfort of a warm house, a full fridge, or a hot bath, but the simplicity of life on this Alpine journey that makes this experience very rewarding!

We propose you this trip in collaboration with our friends from Rewild

For who

Experience with wild camping is not required, but a good hiking condition is. To enjoy this trip you need to be mentally and physically fit and having an adventurous and flexibel spirit. We have to work as a team to arrive at the next location, to set up camp and cook food for the night. Every day we hike an avarage of 10km and 1000m up/down, with a heavy (70l) backpack. We leave the valley at 700m and the highest peak we might reach goes up to 3000m. This tour leads us over narrow mountain paths, along deep gorges and by ladders hanging on the rock wall! Afraid of heights? Then you rather choose a Rewild trip exploring the Dutch polders (yes, you honestly can!)

Accommodation

Five nights you will spend in tents, proposed by Rewild. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included, but need to be carried and preperard by ourselves. The last night you'll sleep in the valley, warm and comfortably in a hotel or a chambre d'hôte.
