A Guided hike: the best way to start your hiking adventure

On your first day, our hiking guide will take you on a hike exploring the countryside. The hike itself is only 8 km long – but we have included lots of stops, therefore it can take a few hours before we get you back to your hotel – depending on your fitness level. This is a private hiking tour just for you. No one else will be joining the tour. This is one of our most popular hikes because you really get it all.

Besides the classic, dark Black Forest gorge hike next to waterfalls, you get a lot of Black Forest history, a few touristy things, the oldest chapel in the Black Forest, the areas largest cuckoo clock. And the option to have a beer in a typical Black Forest inn. This hike takes you down into a valley famous for its ancient mills that once made everything from rope to spoons. You will see how people thrived hundreds of years ago. Your local guide has lots of stories to tell. You are in for a real treat!

Flexibility it is!

Our Hells Valley Trail Package provides you with a lot of flexibility. You are staying  in a family-owned small hotel in a beautiful mountain town in the Southern Black Forest, less than 60 minutes away from Freiburg. Perfect base to explore sights and do some hiking. Due to its location The Hells Valley Trail Package provides you with many other options besides hiking. Do some sightseeing on your own (public transportation is free), or go for a swim in the lake. On the second day of your trip we set you up with one of our drivers for a half day driving tour, there are several itineraries to choose from.

What’s the area like?

The terrain of the Southern Black Forest (where the Hells Valley Trail is located at) is postcard perfect. This area has the sunniest and warmest weather in Germany. The terrain is composed of mountain meadows while thick forests and steep ravines dominate the higher elevations.

Is it for me?

We loved our tour guide, Gisela, who guided us through our one-day hike of the Hells Valley Trail. We only devoted one day to our Black Forest exploration, and Simone was extremely responsive to our requests every step of the way. Simone will happily work with you as you figure out what you want when you visit the Black Forest region!

You're in Good Hands with Simone

Simone was quite helpful in organizing a trip for four days through the Black Forest and Alsace helping line up drivers and hotels and giving us good suggestions. There is quite a lot to choose from and definitely enough for another week or two sometime in the future. The hiking trails were awesome and the Black Forest is a beautiful place to be on a misty Tuesday morning.
