Europe | Travel & Adventures

England Coast-to-Coast

For the last 40 years, MTS has blazed the trails of European adventure travel. We began our expeditions in the Alps, where we've been perfecting our routes since the 70's, then we became the first North American company to enter formerly inaccessible countries of Eastern Europe including Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina—feats duly noted by The New York Times & USA Today.

Award-winning trips. Climb "the walls of heaven" on our classic routes through the Alps: Tour du Mont Blanc, Haute Route and Grand Randonée 5; put your endurance to the test with a 190-mile hike through England Coast-to-Coast; sail Turkey's famed Turquoise Coast aboard a luxury yacht; or explore the diverse lava fields, glaciers, hot springs, and puffin colonies of Iceland. Men's Journal has named our Europe adventures the best.

Local Guides, Local Connections. MTS has forged longstanding relationships with guides that work exclusively for MTS and live locally in Europe. Our guides are "lifers," not just there for the summer. Because you're traveling with a local, you'll feel a warm welcome from every person you meet and every place you stay.

The Grand Traverse of Northern ItalyThe Alps Specialists. No one knows the Alps better than MTS. Unlike other North American outfitters that book you on a European company's pre-designed tour, we personally scout and craft our own Alps itineraries every year in collaboration with our local MTS-exclusive guides—all of whom have 15-20+ years of guiding experience and/or earned the presitigious IFMGA mountain guide certification. 

All Fitness Levels Welcome. While MTS is best known for our "Ultimate Challenge" long distance and high altitude treks, we also have designed an extensive collection of moderate to easy hikes, so everyone can experience Europe's iconic mountains and villages. Families will find specially-crafted itineraries, too!

It's All in the Details. Repeat guests of ours have described our Europe operation as a "well-oiled machine." From airport transfers to packing lists, meal times to a guide's manners—and every other detail you could not imagine (nor would want to), we take care of it. That's where our decades of experience show through.
