Press Release   •   May 16, 2016 15:01 BST

Ramblers Worldwide Holiday – the experts in guided walking adventures across the globe – is offering two challenging treks embracing some of Europe’s most spectacular scenery.

These include:

A fortnight’s guided walking holiday Across the Alps from Bavaria’s Allgäu, through Austria and Switzerland into Italy.This is RWH’s most popular hutting holiday with 3000m peaks, high passes and gorges.

This dramatic adventure begins in Oberstdorf where one heads to tranquil Kaisertal, thence across the Lechtal Alps to St Anton.Next one climbs through the Verwall Mountains over the Kappeler Joch before descending to the Paznauntal for an overnight stay in Ischgl.

From here one crosses into Switzerland into the glorious Heidelberger Hütte then onto the Fimber Pass at 2608m descending into the spectacular scenic haven of the Swiss Engadine.

At the Sesvenna hut in Italy, a ‘free day’ enables one to climb the Rasass Peak (2941m) with views of three countries before arriving at Mals in Italy.

Price from £1,299 per person includes return flights, full board accommodation (mountain huts and village pensions) and the services of a dedicated tour leader. Departures 28 July and 11 August 2016.

The next trekking option is the Salzburger Almenweg – a fortnight’s holiday spanning ‘Almen’ – Austrian mountain farms.Occupied solely in summer, most are off the beaten track and only visited occasionally by walkers and hunters.The mountain farms offer sustenance to hikers, with home made cheese and meat for lunches and accommodation for those in need of a bed for the night.

The Salzburger Almenweg is a 220 mile trail linking 120 of the 500 Almen in the Salzburg region.RWH has chosen the first 100 miles of the trail enabling clients to savour a mountain farmer’s simple way of life – with a blend of traditional farming and warm hospitality.

Accommodation is either in ‘lagers’ (usually about 10 mattresses or bunks) or in smaller rooms with one to four bunks.

Price from £1,299 per person includes return flights, transfers, full board accommodation (mountain huts) and the services of a dedicated tour leader.Departs 25 July 2016.
