Dates & Prices

We aim to run 1-2 tours per month from June through to September. The tour itinerary changes slightly with the month due to snow on the passes early in season and cooler temperatures later in the season.

Larger groups we aim to give you a slot immediately. Smaller groups unless specifically indicated by you (subject to costs) will involve making some new friends.
