Alpine Crossings

While walking in the Alps is always a joyous thing to do, there is a special feeling to have achieved an Alpine Crossing. These trips don't fall into the Easy category.  They are tests of mind, body and spirit, but with these tests, come the rewards that only a trip like this can provide.  To cross the Alps is to put yourself in a place that not many others will go. To challenge the elements, to challenge your body, but all with the knowledge that Macs Adventure has your back should you need it. 

There are the big, famous crossings, like the Via Alpina across the Swiss Alps or the Walker's Haute Route, crossing from France to Switzerland. Start off in Germany, walk through Austria and finish up in Italy on the E5 Alpine Crossing, or take on the magnificent GR5 Route from Lake Geneva over to Chamonix.
