Our enthusiastic mountain guides and small groups allow you to venture off the beaten track to places you haven't been before.

Alpine Recreation offer a wide range of both summer and winter treks and hikes to suit various levels of fitness, ability and experience - many of our clients return year after year for a new mountain challenge. We specialise in providing a personal service and creating custom alpine adventures - just ask us!

"Ball Pass was by far the best hike myself and partner have done to date. You can expect to be physically and mentally challenged as it is no walk in the park and you must be focused on what you're doing at all times. The Caroline Hut is nice and cosy and you couldn't ask for a better place to kick your boots off each night and enjoy great company and good wholesome food. Our guide was fantastic and we knew we were in safe hands at all times with her depth of experience and her willingness to teach us some great new skills."
