The legendary mountain range that arcs 750 miles from Genoa to Vienna
The Alps are the highest and most extensive mountain range system that lies entirely in Europe, and stretching approximately 1,200 kilometres across eight Alpine countries: France, Switzerland, Monaco, Italy, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, and Slovenia.
Breath taking scenery
Why The Alps?
Destination Matterhorn. The Matterhorn mountain of the Alps straddles the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy. It’s near-symmetric pyramidal peak in the extended Monte Rosa area of the Pennine Alps, whose summit is 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high, making it one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe. Zermatt is the highest and largest all-round ski area in the world, guaranteed snow 365 days of the year!
