UIMLA Trekking in the Alps with Hilary Sharp


All treks and holidays meet the evening before the walking begins. We meet in a hotel, where accommodation is costed on double occupancy of rooms. Single rooms, where available, incur a single supplement.

All trek and holiday prices include (unless otherwise stated): 

• guiding services
• the guide's expenses 
• bed, breakfast and evening meal from the meeting evening to the morning of the day after the end of the trek / holiday 
• planned cable cars and valley transport during the trek / holiday
• for snowshoeing: rental of snowshoes, poles, avalanche transceivers, shovels and probes

Not included in the trek price
• transport to and from the meeting place
• lunch food
• drinks
• rescue insurance

Important information regarding prices:
Prices are in € because mainly my costs are in €. I can accept payment in sterling for the holiday deposit. For payments from the outside Europe please pay the € price either by bank transfer - bank details supplied on request - or Paypal.

Please note that Trekking in the Alps is not a travel agency. Your trek or holiday price usually includes accommodation, transport and, in the winter, gear rental, but this is solely for your convenience. Equally you can choose to pay your accommodation costs yourself, but usually people
prefer me to include this as it’s much easier to pay everything up front.

On this note, often I request the balance payment in cash in the currency of the holiday (€ or Swiss francs) as I have to pay for the accommodation and many places don’t take credit card. Moreover, each time I pay by credit card I pay a charge so for me the inclusion of accommodation charges is purely and simply for the client’s convenience.

Additional costs are often van rental, days spent organizing and checking the trek and lift or transfer charges during the holiday. A full breakdown of costs for any particular holiday is available from me on request.
