Celebrating Our Website Launch!

Reasons to be cheerful!

After almost a year's work by the Tracks and Trails team, we are delighted to announce the launch of our new website! Together with our revamped logo we hope you like our fresh new ‘look’, and with the help of an easy trip search tool find it easy to navigate. It has everything our trusty old site had but also a lot more! The design we feel allows us to showcase our trips bringing them alive with improved; photo galleries, maps, videos, accommodation details and guest reviews. We've an area dedicated to the fabulous team of guides we work with, a ‘My Account’ section, revised trip grading system, and we can take online payments which will automatically update the places available to help make choosing and managing your trip easier. We hope that you enjoy seeing the results so far, and we value any feedback.

Winter 2019: NEW Trips

As the clocks changed yesterday, much of Europe saw the first real cold snap in a long time. With snow on the high ground for many of us our attention will soon be turning to winter. Our snowshoeing trips have all had a ‘make over’ courtesy of our new website and we are also pleased to be offering four new ‘classic style' cross country skiing trips. In Scandinavia we have a first timers point-to-point tour which includes 3 days of instruction and 3 days of touring along the Finnish-Russian Frontier, for Intermediates the chance to ski in Lapland with wild reindeer and the Aurora Borealis overhead, then for more advanced skiers a fabulous new point-to-point trip along the Hallingdal Track in Norway. In the French Alps, BASI ISIA ski teacher Tania Noakes will be running our Haute Savoie Ski Safari designed for Intermediate skiers focusing on exploring, whilst improving technique along the way. It even includes a shot at biathlon! Read more about our Winter 2019 trips.

Stay Warm with Montane

Our partner Montane has made a special deal available to our clients.

Trip Grades Explained

As part of our new website we’ve revised our trip grading system for each of our activities. Each now has five levels, steadily increasing in difficulty. We provide a description of each grade for; walking, trail running, family trips, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Everyone has their own ideas about what is tough and what is easy, and describing our trips is without doubt one of our biggest challenges!
