We kick off our trip at Les Deux Alpes, where we ski or snowboard with experienced mountain guides on the world's largest skiable glacier! Each morning, we hit the slopes hard before jumping into off-snow adventures during the afternoons: whitewater rafting, mountain biking, waterfall hiking and summer luging keep our adrenaline racing throughout the day!
Explore the beautiful rolling hills of Verona, filled with quaint Italian shops, rich history, and restaurants serving homemade pasta. The jagged peaks of the Dolomites are the backdrop for three days of spectacular backpacking, rock climbing, and more time on the slopes among these stunning cloud-veiled mountains.
World-famous Interlaken is the home base for our service project at a local Swiss farm. Then, under the shadow of the Alps, we wakeboard and waterski in the adventure capital of Europe. In Saas Fee we spend three more days skiing and trying the European sport of canyoneering: rappelling through waterfalls, bouldering up rocks and crossing the canyon on a zip-line. This is one of our highest-rated activities! The town of Zermatt allows for some souvenir shopping and relaxation before we say goodbye to our new friends and the trip of a lifetime!
Yes, Ultimate Alps and all Bold Earth trips are designed to be combined to create a 4, 6 or 8 week Bold Earth summer adventure. If you are interested contact our Colorado office for more information!
