This a real Alpine Adventure!

This tour celebrates the complete diversity offered by the French and Swiss Alps, discovering their breathtaking scenery. From standing above the clouds on the tip of the remarkable Aiguille du Midi, to being inside the Trummelbach mountain as the thundering waterfall roars down around you, shaking the ground you stand on. From delightful, lakeside Annecy and Chateau Chillon beside Montreux, to staying in a fantastic spa hotel in Grindelwald with views of the Eiger, or Zermatt beside the Matterhorn, and especially experiencing the incredible Glacier Express panoramic train ride that cuts through the glorious Alps.

Lake Garda is a logical finale completing your grand Alpine mountain traverse by relaxing beside a glacier-carved, deep blue, beautiful Italian Lake.

Staring from Zurich, Switzerland your journey takes you across the Alps before ending in Italy, enjoying 2,3 and 4 night stays along the way. Revel in this pace that will give you a true insight into this magnificent region, all while enjoying the benefits of a small group, not more than 28 travellers.

<p>'My holiday to the Red Centre was a very humbling experience.  This holiday exceeded all my expectations.  Being my first holiday as a solo traveller I was apprehensive, now I have had the experience I recommend it.'</p>

<p>'My second Encounter tour, and the common thread is that you're with a group of people, of a similar age, who are all looking to enjoy their holiday. Makes for a good dynamic.'</p>
