In our day to day life we like to have certainty and control. These bizarre covid times shows us once again that we are not in control and that we must learn to deal with the unknown and be flexible and adaptive. On this Wild Alps winter adventure trip we help you to reconnect with nature again. In the backcountry we will face some challenges to overcome, making the most of the things we've brought or find in nature. Adventure starts where the plan ends; welcome to the unknown, welcome to the Wild Alps!
Ready with a backpack with all your essential items, you’ll set off on this 5 days late winter expedition. Each day you'll travel by snowshoes an average of 7km and 500 altitude meters. Because it's end of March yet, we might find some grassy descends on the south faces and snowy climbs on the north faces.A well-earned mountain meal awaits you at your sleeping place. This may be a garded or non-garded mountain refuge, an igloo or a B&B. The overnight stays are usually basic and adventurous, with breakfast, lunch and dinner included. The tour is guided by AlpAdventures guide Arno and wilderness guide Nick, who take care of your safety and can tell you all about the amazing mountain environment. After 5 days in the mountains you’ll arrive at a comfy accommodation to end your trip. Check the trip-report from last years Wild Alps trip (written in Dutch, but the pictures speak for themselves :)

"A true specialist in the Grand Massif. We had an epic 4 days in the backcountry of Sixt, snowshoeing, climbing and descending mountains and ridges, camping in a snowhole and sleeping in unmanned huts. We have been guided very professionally, everything was taken care of and well organised. Definitely recommend Alpadventures and for sure coming back next winter!" - Koert
