Hiking in Austria with Ryder-Walker Alpine Adventures.
Our only adventure travel company since 1985!!! We come back because of the quality of the guides and the recognition that some people, like us, want to be challenged physically with big hikes, not to mention spectacular scenery. We also appreciate R-W’s continuing effort to explore new areas...- Don Ware: Montenegro Trek
I loved the casual guiding style of our guides. I loved the organization of the trip. The accommodations were appropriate, the hotel meals were excellent. The length of each days hiking was challenging yet everyone finished with plenty of time to relax before dinner.- Alicia Guerra: Private Tour du Mont Blanc
This was truly one of the best trips I have been on. The variety, scenery, and friendliness of the guides and locals made this trip one of a kind. The trek did not seem technical, but Staffan was always attentive, and helpful in areas that were a bit tricky. - Mary Stelling: Morocco Atlas Mountains Trek
