Self-Guided Walking Holiday

Our self-guided trips are perfect for those wishing to explore the local area of the Haute Savoie entirely at their own pace. Whether you just prefer full control over your daily plans or are just looking to have some freedom to experience some of the many alternative activities on offer, you can be sure that the Absolute Alpine team will help you make the most of your time in the Samoëns valley and surrounding area.

We will provide a map in addition to our detailed route cards to ensure you get the most out of your days on the mountain. Our experienced guide (and knowledgeable team) are on hand to provide any advice you may need and also to help with the booking of any other activities.

On 'walking days' (not Saturday change-over or a Wednesday staff rest day), we'll also provide local transport to and from your walks.

Mealtimes will also be a great opportunity to share stories of your mountain adventures with the other guests and pick up some ideas of areas to explore. If you decide that you would like to join a guided group you can upgrade for £25/€30 per day (paid locally).

Equally if you fancy an overnight adventure on the mountain, we can help to arrange a stay in one of the many mountain huts in the area (typically around €55 full board paid locally).

Walking Highlights

Each of our holidays offer something special, on this Self-Guided Walking Holiday you can look forward to the following highlights:

Solo Travellers & Small Groups

There's no need to find a group to fill our chalet for these walking trips as all of these holidays are also open to solo travellers or small groups.

There is no single supplement to pay although we may ask that you share a twin room with a same sex traveller.

Difficulty & Grading

We are keen to make sure that all of our guests get the holiday expected and enjoy the walking as much as possible.

If any guests find themselves considerably less fit and able than the rest of the group or unable to meet the requirements of the particular grade, we reserve the right the move the guest to a lower graded group or to offer self-guided walking. Route cards, maps and a GPS unit are offered for self-guided days in this situation.
