About us...


I´m Brigitte Grüner,

your guide and partner
for your walks.


For many years, I have worked as a freelance professional guide and ski instructor. I have guided groups on tours for several well known walking-tour companies in Austria and the surrounding countries. For those desiring custom, personalized tours, I have guided individuals and small groups on both walking and ski tours, too.

I was born in Germany, but am now an Austrian citizen residing in Soelden, which is one of Austria´s most famous ski and holiday resorts located in the heart of the Eastern Alps.

Over the years, I have made many friends who come back again and again to take my tours. Their say they trust me to lead them through the back doors of Europe and appreciate my expertise and enthusiasm, my knowledge about tradition and history, and my never ending love for nature.

Starting 2005, I am offering three of my popular, favorite walking trips, tried and proved before.

Together with my husband, a well trained and experienced mountain guide and accompanied by local guest experts, who share their knowledge of a certain region,
I aim to give you the best insight on local life, nature and landscape, towns, villages and culture. Mostly things that don´t appear on official maps or in booklets. Our walking days are designed to have fun and taste the local specialties in  relaxing and exciting settings.

In contrast to the large travel agencies, with my personally guided tours, you will be welcomed by a small team with personal contact and a touch of family feeling.
Benefit from small group sizes (4-10) and low prices, without any loss of quality.

I invite you to join me in finding the spirit that can only be sparked during a holiday on foot.

                                                          Best regards
