FAQ

+ Why do I even need an itinerary for my hiking trip?

Well, sure you cannot go hiking without any preparation. As you can see, you have 2 options – hire a licensed mountain guide, which is often pricey (prices start at 200euros per day) or do your own research.

The latter means you need to purchase a guide, a map and find a route that you think suits you most. As we have hiked all over the world, we know how stressful and time consuming that is. To spare you with troubles, we are offering you all our knowledge and expertise.

+ How does the itinerary look like?

The itinerary comes in a written version (pdf file) and includes the following:

  • Descriptive and graphical overview of your hiking trip with main points of interest,
