Europe is great, but Alpine Interface runs fantastic trips close to home in Alberta. My daughter and I just completed a great series of hikes in Banff and Yoho, and even the snow on the Helen Lake trek did not put a damper on the experience. Great guide in Tamara, who was extremely knowledgeable and flexible in planning our daily journeys. Being near AI home base, we had special attention from Louie and Karin to make sure everything ran smoothly. I think you can hike the Canadian Rockies for years and years and never go the same place twice. AI is definitely a prime choice to lead the experience.

Just returned from a hike in Switzerland, Italy and France
These guides were outstanding. We were a group of 24 and they were professional and extremely knowledgeable. The hikes were outstanding! I plan to travel with them again through Italy, in a few months
Thank you for a wonderful trip !

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

    About Alpine Interface

    Alpine Interface specializes in guided hiking, walking, and trekking tours on specific regions of four continents. They also run sea kayaking trips in Baja California, Mexico, and in Croatia. The small, family-run company is owned and operated by a Canadian couple, with the husband serving as chief guide and his wife is office manager. They live half the year in the Canadian Rockies (near Banff National Park) and, in summers, are headquartered in France’s Chamonix Valley. 

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Alpine Interface is known for its customer care and personalized service. Their motto is “Venture with a Purpose” and they have a commitment to responsible travel, including helping to support two foundations in Nepal. 

    Who Travels With Them?

    Most clients are from North America and range from ages 30 to 60, but family trips are offered and the company will gear a private guided or self-guided trip to your own interests or abilities.  

    Where Do They Operate?

    Alpine Interface runs tours in the French, Swiss, Italian, and Slovenian Alps; other areas of France; the Scotland Highlands; the coasts of Croatia and Crete; Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula; Patagonia; Canada; Baja Mexico, and Nepal. Trekking, climbing, and hiking are the major focus, but sea kayaking trips are also offered. 

    How Does It Work?

    Alpine Interface features dozens of pre-set itineraries, with a strong emphasis on hiking in the Alps, but also in such far-flung places as Patagonia, Nepal and far eastern Russia. They will customize a trip for you if you don’t want to travel with a group or if you want to form your own group of any size. Trips are rated in five categories from easy to strenuous, depending on number of hours of walking and elevation gain per day.

    Why Travel With Them?

    This small company has made a mark for itself as a leader in its niche. By focusing on just a few activities and regions, Alpine Interface has been able to hone its expertise in those areas and provide personalized service as well.

    About Machu Travel Peru

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Who Travels With Them?

    Where Do They Operate?

    Why Travel With Them?
