The Hikes

Day hikes

Most hikes CULTURA MONTIS offers are one day hikes. The time needed to get to the starting point and back sets a certain limitation to the location of these hikes, so that the regions we go to are the Neuenburger and Solothurner Jura, the Canton Fribourg, the Bernese Oberland, the northern Valais and the Central Switzerland. Usually these hikes take place on a Saturday or Sunday, but Fridays and Mondays may also be chosen.  

As a small tour operator and with the possibilities of today’s technologies short term planning is possible. Usually the dates of day hikes are fixed a month in advance. Last minute booking is possible.

Weekend hikes

Week-end tours offer the opportunity to learn even more about an area in the Alps. Sometimes it’s also the longer journey needed to get to the chosen place like the Tessin or Canton Graubünden, that makes the choice. Because of staying overnight and due to the hotel reservation needed, these weekend trips need to be fixed earlier and payment is asked in advance.

Private tours and family trips

CULTURA MONTIS also offers private hiking trips for family or groups and teams. Choose a hike you would like to do and mail for more details. You have a hiking destination in mind which is not listed? No problem, just a treat to find a tempting solution.   Looking for a challenging day out with your family?

A lot of hikes that CULTURA MONTIS offer can be adapted to the special needs and interests of your kids: shorter hikes and more time at a lakes side, a Swiss barbeque for lunch, hunting after Edelweiss, time for games on play grounds or while hiking and of course all the travelling on boats, trains, gondolas, busses.
