Soaring peaks, glistening lakes, and monumental glaciers—the pull of the mountains has never been stronger than with the Swiss Alps. Just as the last remnants of a snowy winter wonderland start to melt away, a spectacular network of trails emerges for an all-women, week-long hiking tour in the Engadin Valley. Covering 360 miles, these trails will lead you to the deep end of nature: walk amid a motley of wildflowers, reach the celestial Muottas Muragl via a vintage funicular, and listen to the sound of Romansh as you roam in the Swiss villages. Factor these spectacular natural wonders in with sightings of ibex, chamois, marmots, and golden eagles, and you’ve got yourself a picture-perfect trip in the mountains. Don’t forget to indulge yourself with the national dish fondue, melt-in-the-mouth Lindt chocolates, or delicious Rösti!

  • Stellar views of Piz Bernina at 4,049 m, the highest peak in the Eastern Alps

  • Birthplace of fondue and some of the best chocolates in the world

  • Track Swiss trails rising over pastoral valleys and sparkling lakes alongside like-minded women

Fantastic week walking. Amazing scenery. Very much appreciated the insights brought by Claudia, our local guide. I would highly recommend this trip. Tip – keep the contents of your backpack to the essentials only.

I have throughly enjoyed my holidays with Walking Women ! Well organised and responsive  and always lovely warm and inclusive groups. The fab accommodation and wonderful places ensure that I will be booking regular trips with them


This was my first time with Walking Women and I have to say it was just great getting together with a bunch of like-minded women enjoying the walks, the scenery, the chats and of course the cream teas! Chrissie was a great host and walk leader. I will certainly be looking to 2020 for another walking holiday. Keep up the great work.


From the little I have experienced on my holiday with WW, I can see people and places are carefully selected, and held to a high standard with prices that remain almost affordable for all; curated to make the guest at ease at all times wether in the intinerary of the walks or the destination hotel/B&B stay. As a solo traveler I’m only sorry I didnt discover it sooner 🙂
