Multiple Day Hiking Tours

Germans claim that ‘hiking was invented in the Black Forest‘ in the mid-1800s. We don’t know if that’s really true, but we do know that the Black Forest offers some of the finest hiking in Europe. The length of all trails combined is some 23,000 kilometres. They are ideal for short day hikes with the family as well as challenging long-distance multi-day routes.

Our self-guided hiking tours start at 2 days and can last up to 6 days. You don’t need to organize anything. We handle your hotel reservations and your luggage transport. All you need to worry about is a good pair of hiking boots. Only here for a day? We also offer Guided Half Day Hikes.
