Variety of trip styles

We offer a large variety of inn-to-inn style hiking trips. These are multi-day hikes with overnight stays in mountain inns that feature comfortable amenities, including shower, and offer meals. For people who prefer to hike inn-to-inn itineraries in solitude we organize self-guided inn-to-inn hikes. To private groups and business customers we offer individually planned tailor-made inn-to-inn trips with itineraries based on specific preferences of each group or customer. These trips include the best possible services such as transportation of gear and private rooms in the inns.

Our hikes collection has a trip for almost anyone who likes hiking in the mountains.

For families and people who prefer hotel accommodation we run village-based hiking programs with our local alpine guides. To the tourists staying in alpine resorts and willing to just hike once or a couple of times we offer a possibility of custom day hikes with our guides.

Spectacular destinations

The geographic distribution of our trips is wide – we cover not just the most popular alpine ranges but wild less known areas too. The most famous hiking destinations in the Alps include the Dolomites and Mont Blanc. Besides that, our itineraries run through beautiful wild landscapes of several off-the-beaten-track mountain groups, such as Ortler. Such mountains offer great hiking experience to people who appreciate hiking in wilderness and with solitude. Our destinations also include the northern Garda lake ridges, Rhaetian Alps, Pennine Alps, Gran Paradiso, Tyrol in Austria and Bernese Alps in Switzerland.

Company history

Cecilia previously worked as a manager for a tour operator in the Dolomites and ran a mountain inn in Stelvio together with her family since the 1970s. Alex, before founding MONT Trekking, started and grew several adventure travel related businesses. Since 2016 the MONT Trekking partnership includes Peter Tosunidis, a professional manager who started his career in the adventure travel industry in 1993 and served as CEO to several specialized tour operators.
