About us

European Walking Tours was founded in 1986 by Jacqueline Tofte Hess. For many years she walked and skied the Alps and discovered her guiding principle and the perfect holiday - walking in the beauty of nature. Her intimate knowledge in history, cultures and customs are the basics of European Walking Tours and this spirit is still deeply rooted in the company.

Today we can count on highly qualified guides, which substantially contribute towards our special tours. We are the expert for guided active tours with group sizes of around 20 participants. To get the most out of the tour we also work together with local guides, typical accommodations and local culinary. Besides our guided hiking, walking and cycling tours we organise ski vacations, conferences, incentives and company outings/trips.
