In Europe and beyond
The destinations in our "Out of the Arctic" series are not limited to particular areas - although the European mountain ranges will often be our playground, we will also venture to more foreign destinations. Often they are special places that the guides have discovered during their own personal experiences and would like to share. This means it might be a "one-off trip", where we are taking a group for the first time!
Once only opportunities
These trips will appear on our calendar just once. Each year the destinations will change. This way, we will highlight some new, unknown places every year.
We deliberately choose to offer many destinations outside the peak season: in the Alps, for example, we like to set off in autumn, when the mountains explode with bright autumn colors, and when we can avoid the big crowds which usually frequent these locations over the summer.
The right balance between destination and travel format
By tent or in (non-staffed) mountain huts, a short break, or a week-long trek: travel time, accommodation and transportation are always balanced. For destinations close to home, we will often try to drive on a cost-sharing basis.
