A&K Alpine Guides

Make the most of the mountains with an exclusive private guide

Transform a great alpine holiday into an unforgettable one with a world class Abercrombie & Kent private guide. These heroic (and usually decorative) mountain men will unlock secrets and introduce guests to activities in the Alps most wouldn’t even dream about. It’s great for families after a holiday with a difference, the mildly adventurous, the outright intrepid and for those who just want to enjoy the mountains off the beaten track. As ever, it’s all about being in the know…

Abercrombie & Kent bespoke alpine holidays are sensational; seamless transfers and fabulous chalets are a given, but the added bonus of a private A&K guide is a transforming factor. Group excursions and DIY mountain adventures are just not an option for the cognoscenti. Private guides with their extensive experience and insider knowledge are the way to go for sophisticated travellers who want the best.

Take Chamonix, for example. A private guide will tailor-make mountain fun precisely suited to all ages and abilities. Glacier trekking and ice-climbing on the Mer du Glace come within reach; alpine mountaineering for all standards is on the cards; canyoning at Barberine is no longer a ‘wish I’d done that’ but a reality. Via ferrata trails consisting of ladders and cables are an ultra-exhilarating challenge; a trifle scary perhaps but with a wise and sure pair of hands at the helm, an experience for those with a head for heights never to be forgotten. On a more sedate level there are gorgeous scenic walks to little known mountain restaurants, wild flower expeditions and a whole host of gentle Heidi-esque mountain activities for those who prefer their enjoyment less adrenalin laced.

Our A&K luxury chalets in Chamonix are superb. Ideal for summer holidays, they include Chalet Amazon Creek for up to 10 guests, with a pool, Jacuzzi, spa and cinema which can be rented in conjunction with the equally gorgeous nearby Chalet Baby Bear and Chalet Baloo which sleep 4 and 8 respectively.

In Zermatt, the Matterhorn and its stunning surroundings are a playground to be enjoyed any which way for all standards - courtesy of a private guide of course. There is alpine mountaineering for beginners through to experts, glacial climbing up the Briethorn using crampons and ice axes, glacial trekking galore and via ferrata trails for the bold. There are plenty of non-climbing options too, including gentle treks to enjoy the sensational scenery and even one to touch the base of the Matterhorn for those who just can’t resist the pull of that magnificent mountain.

Zermatt luxury chalets are renowned for their style and opulence. Chalet Zermatt Peak sleeps up to 13 and offers a pool, Jacuzzi, spa and panoramic views across the village and mountains, whilst Chalet Les Anges sleeps up to 14 and is ideal for foodie fans, due to its Michelin star trained chef and also has a pool and spa. In the middle of Zermatt, Chalet Heidi is a charming, cosy and traditional Savoyard haven for just 6 – perfect for smaller groups or a family.
