Our Philosophy

What wanderidee.ch stands for!

We are Wanderidee.ch

wanderidee.ch is a platform of trained, independent hiking guides from the Zurich area. We are passionate about hiking in the mountains and sharing our enthusiasm and experience. We avoid alpine fun parks because we much prefer to hike through the quiet areas in the mountains respecting nature and giving our guests an experience to remember.


Both individuals and groups are very welcome! We conduct our tours in small groups. For larger groups we are happy to customise a tour for you. Simply get in touch.

Matching performance

We plan, organise and guide the tours from A to Z for all our guests. Our one- and two-day tours are easily accessible by public transport from the Zurich area. Whether on adventurous routes or more leisurely paths, fun, experience and safety are our top priorities.


It is our goal to bring happy hikers safely to their destination. Safety is therefore particularly important to us and is always at the forefront of our decisions when planning and guiding tours.

Discover and experience

We invite you to experience with us the Alps as a living environment. Depending on the hike and the interest of the participants, this will include learning about the history of a landscape, the flora and fauna, traditions and stories of the inhabitants, local cuisine, and cultural diversity and music. We have an extensive knowledge of the Alpine region and its inhabitants. Our guests can therefore expect not just a competent and safe guided tour but also lots of interesting facts and information along the way.

Sustainable and Respectful

A respectful attitude towards people, nature and the environment is at the heart of our philosophy. Whenever possible, we use public transport to travel to the tours.


Our prices cover the costs of organising the tour, the fee and expenses for the hiking guide, and a share towards our infrastructure costs.

Difficulty scale

No particular technical difficulties. Ideal for all enthusiasts from beginners to more experienced hikers, as well as whole families from young to old.
Ideally, you already have some experience of the mountains and know how to walk over hill and dale.
Surefootedness and a head for heights are an advantage. Tours for mountain lovers looking for new challenges.
