WANTED-Travel Companions for Self-Guided Engadine Trek


We have a delightful couple that just registered for a self-guided Engadine Trek. They’re currently traveling by themselves, but they’re looking for hiking companions to join them for an adventurous trek through one of the Alps’ best-kept secrets, the Engadine region of southeastern Switzerland.

The Engadine region commands a folded landscape of deep, isolated valleys, sheer rocky summits, multifaceted glaciers and thick pine forests. The Romans settled the area more two thousand years ago, drawn by curative hot springs and abundant sunshine. The Austrians moved in later, and the result is an unequaled culture with a unique blend of German and Italian influences. This region is, in fact, officially trilingual. The northern part speaks German, the southern villages speak Italian, and the entire region speaks Romansh, a Latin dialect left over from the original Roman settlements known collectively as Rhaetia Prima.

You can read more about the Engadine Trek by clicking here. You can also read more about our self-guided service by clicking here. Self-guided tours are a great way to save money and they afford the flexibility to control every aspect of your tour.

This couple plans to hike from August 31 to September 7, 2010. Please contact us directly if you’re interested in joining this tour, and please include “Engadine Companions” in your subject line.

Anybody else looking for fellow hikers? We’re happy to spread the word.
