Self-Guided Adventures in the Alps
Your personal self-guided
adventure with ultimate flexibility
If you’re a seasoned trail runner or have the confidence and abilities required to travel on your own in the Alps, then you may want to opt for a self-guided tour. This option is meant to give you total flexibility and control without the hassle of planning.
In a self-guided scenario, we take care of the route planning, bookings, trail instructions, and provide you with regional information and local tips. Perhaps most valuable of all, you’ll have access to a Trail Run Austria guide’s phone number in case you need some real-time support.
Self-guided tours are meant to be worry-free, where you can relax and focus on the trail. All you have to do is book a tour, get out there, breathe in the air, and enjoy the view. We’ll take care of the accommodation, shuttle services, weather forecast analysis, and any issues that might arise.
What makes a self-guided trip right for you?
If you’re unsure about any aspect of trail running in the mountains without a guide, don’t hesitate to ask us about any uncertainties! We are happy to give you free advice on what kind of tour will suit you best. Here are a few topics that you should be comfortable with before you commit to a self-guided tour.
- Self-assessment of abilities
- Wilderness first aid/Rescue situations
- Map reading/Orientation in the mountains
If ANY of these points make you feel uneasy about going on a self-guided tour, please consider booking a guide to ensure a safe and wholesome adventure. Nature’s beauty can be distracting from the fact that the mountains are not to be underestimated.
