Guided Day Hike

Hit the trails with a local guide

If you don’t want to worry about reading maps and navigating between hiking signs, we can set you up with a private guide who takes you on a Black Forest Day Hike. Our hiking guides are experienced locals who know the area like no one else. Many visitors ask if there are any regular scheduled hikes you can join – the answer is no. All our Guided Day Hikes are private tours customized to each persons wants and needs.


Our Guided Day Hikes are typically all-day hikes starting and ending in the Lake Titisee area.

Our Guided Day Hikes include accommodations. We work with hotels in the area, so you can stay at the right hotel depending on your hiking choices. We want to make sure you are well rested and ready to go when we hit the trails in the morning.

Some of the day hikes we have organized in the past, can take you to remote locations, such as the mysterious Wutach Gorge (Wutachschlucht). Where can we take you off the beaten path?

Requirements : Experience

Our Guided Black Forest Day Hikes can accommodate most fitness levels. Ideally you are an experienced hiker* and fit enough to hike all day. If you can cover quite a bit of distance and elevation, this tour can provide you with a rather off-the-beaten path experience. Your local guide is an experienced local hiking guide. You won’t be taking those trails published in the tourist books. You are in for a real treat!

*If you are a beginner hiker, have a look at our Hells Valley Trail Package instead, which is a Half-Day Hike.

Best Time To Go

May though Mid-October is the best time to do a Guided Day Hike.

What’s included with a Guided Day Hike?

  • Accommodation for 1 night in a family-owned and operated hotel
  • Double Room with en-suite bathroom
  • Breakfast
  • Guided All Day Hike with one of our certified hiking guides
  • Welcome Package with useful information and orientation to town and surroundings.

Please ask us if you have any questions about our Guided Day Hike. We are here to help figure out the ideal day hike for you – based on your individual fitness level and experience. Get in touch! Find an overview of all our hiking tours here.

How much time do you have? 1 day adventure

Our Guided Day Hike is a 1 day/1 night package. Many visitors add on a second night so they don’t have to leave town right away – better to relax right off the trail.

Outline of our Guided Day Hike

Arrival Day

After arriving in Freiburg you will take a regional train/bus to your hotel. We organize the hotel so that you are located close to the trail-head. In less than 60 minutes from Freiburg you will arrive at your family-owned and operated hotel in The Black Forest.

Day 1

After breakfast at the hotel you will meet your guide and begin your adventure. Our hikes last all day. We plan on a lunch in either a cabin or local restaurant along the trail (food & drink not included in tour price). After the hike you will return to your hotel from where you depart.


Most people add on an additional night at the hotel. Our day hikes can be challenging and you might prefer to relax and rest-up after your hiking adventure.

The magical black forest hike - not to be missed

We enjoyed a wonderful personalized hike with a guide through the Black
Forest. She was very knowledgeable and energetic while at the same time being encouraging during the difficult sections (it happened to be a rainy day late in the season therefore a little slippery in parts). I would highly recommend taking the time to hike and get out into nature. Remember to bring the right hiking shoes and raincoat depending on the season.

Beautiful Experience And Excellent Service

This tour was amazing - you really get to enjoy a lot of beautiful sights and the tour guide Gisela was very friendly and really made the trip special. It was one of the best tours I've taken, the pace was great, not too fast, enough time to enjoy the views. I would do it all again.

Black Forest walks

Our guide took us on a lovely walk from Herzarten to Titisee and around the lake. An easy 10 miles for two slightly older and newish walkers. Our guide was so lovely and knowledgeable and made the day great. I recommend this company so highly for their organisation and help. We will certainly come again.
