With a hiking guide, you will experience the mountains more intensely!

As you’re hiking, you can unwind completely and enjoy all the beauty that the Alps have to offer: idyllic mountain lakes, peaks with breathtaking views, peace and quiet, beautiful flowers, wild animals, and, of course, fresh air!

Olle (my dog) and I would love to show you our favourite hikes in the Swiss Alps and the JuraAnd everyone, yes everyone, can join me!

Whether you’re young, old, in great shape or you want to back get into shape, I can find the perfect mountain hike for everyone.

If we go out for a half or full day, we can hike up to a beautiful peak, a mountain lake or the perfect picnic spot.

But if you really want to get away from civilisation for a while, you can also book us for a hut-to-hut tour!

For example, ( a part of the ) the Jura-Crest TrailTour des Muverans or, for the experienced hiker, a more difficult tour through the wilds of Graubünden.

And if you prefer a bit of luxury after a day of intensive hiking, we can also sleep in hotels.

If you would like more information or you would like to discuss the options suitable to your particular situation, please e-mail famkevdelst@gmail.com

If you need a bit more convincing, read the reviews by people who I’ve already taken off the beaten track!

huttentocht

Last summer, Famke and Olle took me on a trek of discovery. My first steps in the mountains followed the Tour des Muverans. It was a magnificent trek with a different landscape every day, and Famke guided me along the most beautiful paths and to the best huts. With a combination of knowledge, wisdom, and humour, she taught me the basics of being in the mountains. It was wonderful! Thank you, Fam, I’m already planning my next trip!

Last autumn, we went out on a 3-day hike in the French Alps with Famke (and Olle). On the first day, we looked for chanterelles that we used to make a delicious pasta later that evening.

The second day, we went to a different part of the valley, where we saw whole herds of ibex from up close. Very cool! And on the last day, we went for a mountain hike with a gorgeous view of Lake Geneva. Famke takes you places that you would never find on your own. We highly recommend going mountain hiking with Famke!

This summer, we took our 2 sons for their first real mountain hike. Our sons (8 and 10) turned out to be naturals and kept running out ahead of us. That was followed by a bit of climbing; fortunately, there were chains that we could hold on to to pull ourselves up.

At the top of the mountain, with its impressive view of the Mont Blanc on one side and Lake Geneva and the Jura Mountains on the other, we enjoyed our picnic! (It’s amazing how delicious a simple cheese sandwich and a bottle of water can be…)

Plans for the summer

Without Famke we would never have dared do this, but we’re so glad we did! Our kids are still talking about it, and we will definitely be going back for another beautiful mountain hike with Famke and her dog Olle.

We might even choose a hut-to-hut tour this year!

We love mountain hiking, but teenagers have to break through a barrier before they learn to appreciate it. This summer, Famke took us and our three children (our 14-year-old twin daughters and 16-year-old son) on a number of beautiful mountain hikes. The great thing about having a guide is that you can really get much more out of your holiday than when you go up into the mountains alone. A guide can tell you everything about the mountains, the flowers, the animals, and all kinds of other interesting things!

Raclette by moonlight

But the best thing was the night that Famke took us to a young farmer at the top of the mountain. He makes his own cheese and, every evening, he and his mother serve the most authentic raclette you can imagine! And what an adventure to walk back down the mountain at night under the starry skies. The kids loved it and so did we!
