They’ve decided to expand their horizons, opening the door to mountain holidays around the world by rebranding as Undiscovered Mountains. And why not? There are some incredible ranges out there that are begging to be discovered.

Undiscovered Mountains love all sorts of activities and adventures you can have in the mountains. And their aim is to keep doing what they’ve been doing in the Alps for over a decade, all over the world. In short, they want to make nature’s best playgrounds accessible to everyone.

They aim to deliver fully customisable multi-activity holidays, led by local experts, so that you get the very best mountain experience all over the world. They’ll be doing what they do best across new ranges, with an evolving choice of new activities. And, of course, you’ll get their usual high standards of customer service.

They’ll be working with some exciting new people who share their passion for mountain activities. So you’ll get the best pick of accommodation and activities, including plenty of destinations you won’t find with any other operator.

Off the beaten track activity holidays: Summer

In the summer, from May to November, they specialise in multi-activity holidays but you still focus on single activity if you prefer. Try out some high mountain trekking or mountaineering, whilst staying in refuges located above the winter snow line. Soar down green valleys while paragliding or tackle a dizzying via ferrata.

Toboggan your way down a summer run or plunge from pool to pool while canyoning. There’s also a choice of plenty of other activities, including mountain biking, white water rafting, rock climbing, kayaking and plenty more. As always, you get to design and build your own trip, picking the activities you most want to try.

Off the beaten track activity holidays: Winter

In the winter, from November through to May, the landscape of the mountains completely changes, often buried deep in snow and ice. This opens up a whole new range of activity options for Undiscovered Mountains.

If you can’t resist a day or two on the piste, then ski or snowboard your way around. But there are other ways to travel in the mountains in winter. Hop on a husky sled and glide across the frozen ground. Strap on some snowshoes and explore the mountains on foot. Or ice pick and crampon your way up or down a frozen waterfall.

And if you really want to discover winter in the mountains, build and sleep in, your own igloo for a night.

Introducing Undiscovered Mountains: How it works

Undiscovered Mountains, as with their previous incarnation Undiscovered Alps, use a unique points based system for booking activities so you can fully customise your holiday. Activity points are included as a part of most of their trips, which you can then use to exchange for activities in the mountains.

This means that you don’t have to choose at the time of booking exactly what you want to do. You’ve got time to think about it, discuss it with family and friends, before making your choice. You can even talk it through with their experts to get your itinerary just right.

Which ranges are being Undiscovered?

They plan to cover some of the best and biggest mountain ranges in the world. From those closer to home like the French Pyrenees, Spanish Sierra Nevada and Italian Dolomites. To global destinations such as the Rockies, Andes and the Himalayas.

Connections are being cultivated and wheels set in motion to help you discover some of the most incredible off the beaten track activity holidays on the planet. All in the same way you can currently experience the Alps.

Commitment to sustainable and responsible tourism

Undiscovered Mountains are committed to protecting the environments that they love so much. They always try to support conservation projects and only work with local guides and companies who share their values.

Although Undiscovered Alps has grown into Undiscovered Mountains they’re still a family run business. And they aim to keep it this way in any mountain range they explore over the coming years.

What guests often like best about Undiscovered Alps is the feeling that they’re part of a small group, discovering the mountains with friends rather than as part of a corporate tour. Rebranding as Undiscovered Mountains the team will continue with this ethos.
