Hiking with the Alpine Initiative

Image Hiking with the Alpine Initiative

Hike across the Alps and discover their secrets. Search for wild herbs in enchanted valleys. Wander southwards along old smuggler paths. Stop off at a warm mountain hut after a walk in the rain. Hike from Alpine summits to the Mediterranean. Dive into a clear mountain lake after a hard climb. Hike with us – for a week, or a week-end.

Because the Alpine Initiative not only wants to protect the Alps, but to rediscover them together with you.

Since 1990, we have drawn up an attractive annual programme of hikes in the most beautiful mountain regions: Piedmont and Valtellina, the Zlatorog in Slovenia, passes in Valais, Grisons and Ticino, nature reserves in the High Tauern, Gran Paradiso and Mercantour mountains... and even the Pyrenees.

Our hikes are also open to non-members. Unfortunately, our hiking schedule is only available in German. Thank you for your understanding.

Alpine Initiative

The Alpine Initiative is a Swiss association. In 1989 the association launched the popular initiative "for the protection of the Alpine region from transit traffic", that was accepted on the 20th February 1994 by a majority of both the Swiss population and the cantons.
