Join our four-nation odyssey of superb day hikes in the Alps—and in true WT style, we'll cross all international borders on foot! We hike through the vineyards of northern Italy's Valtellina region, famed for viticulture since Roman times, and into Switzerland's sunny Engadine Valley, with its ice-blue skies. Crossing into tiny Liechtenstein, a land of mountain panoramas and turreted castles, we make our way into the Alps of Austria as we hike the ridgetop Eschnerberg Trail, enjoying views into the Rhine Valley. As we move from country to country, we'll enjoy Romanesque architecture, ancient spa towns, and culinary delights, with a special wine tasting at the renowned cellars of the Prince of Liechtenstein.

With more than 200 different adventures to choose from, we want to help you find the trip that’s right for you. Our Trip Level system ranks each trip in two ways: a number rating from 1 to 6 according to the activity, and general travel rigors. 1 is the easiest and 6+ the most difficult—see descriptions below for explanations of each number. A plus (+) sign means the trip is a bit more strenuous than other trips of that level. The detailed explanation of each trip—below the bar with the number rating—is perhaps more important, specifying activities, altitudes, hiking, and travel conditions. The Detailed Itinerary, available by download or mail, gives further information. Our Area Managers can also answer questions and guide you to the trip that best suits your interests.
Level 1 – Easiest
Non-camping journeys, optional walks, little elevation gain or loss.
Level 3 – Moderate
Half- to full-day hikes (3-6 hours) over rolling countryside on most days, occasional steep trails. Many of our hotel-based walking tours are in this category, as are our snorkeling adventures.
Level 5 – Strenuous
Full-day hikes (4-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Trips with hiking at average altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet are in this category.
