Alpine Mountain Regions

The Alps extend over 1,200 kilometers from east to west and, with their area of about 200,000 square kilometers, divide Europe into the Mediterranean south and central Europe. What was considered an inhospitable wilderness inhabited by rude mountain farmers and dangerous dragons before the development of tourism from the mid-19th century onwards, has since been described as a “dream landscape” by travelers, painters and literary figures. The myth of the force of nature and its purity moves us to this day. And makes the Alps with their incredible diversity of landscape, fauna and flora shine as a unique natural jewel in the middle of Europe.

Hiking holidays became more and more popular after the turn of the millennium and are considered the best example of ecologically compatible “soft tourism”. Especially when it leads to remote regions threatened by emigration and helps to secure a source of income for the local population. Slow Alps would like to contribute to this. Not all the mountainous regions I am now presenting here to whet your appetite are threatened with emigration. But industrial outdoor tourism has not yet gained a foothold here. As a niche provider, Slow Alps enables you to enjoy exceptional alpine vacations here.
