asically, with a comfort package we tend to offer you the best possible comfort level on your hiking tour, aiming for 3 and 4 star hotels, or the best mountaineering huts and pansions in areas where these are unavailable. On the other hand, survival package is aimed at the more adventurous among our visitors, who enjoy sleeping in tents in complete wilderness in order to get the most out of their hiking adventure. While in the comfort package all the meals are provided at the accomodation point or as daily lunch packages, survival in it’s minimum support form means that we will carry food for several days in our backpacks, and often get provisions along the route. But each one of them has several possible levels of service, so we’ll list them in detail below (the price of your tour will depend on the service level). A 4×4 support vehicle which discretely transports your equipment between accomodation points, staying in contact with your guide, but keeping out of sight until needed in order not to disturb your hike, is a possible option for both the comfort or survival packages.

Comfort package options:

  • 3 or 4 star hotel (or best possible accomodation in an area), with all the meals included (standard)
  • An experienced English or German speaking guide
  • A van or 4×4 vehicle that transports the hikers to the starting point, and picks up the group after the hike is finished
  • A 4×4 vehicle that carries your extra luggage, and can intersect with the hike at key points in case you need some of your equipment, or can serve as resque vehicle in case of medical/fatigue problems (optional)
