Pure trekking adventures by passionate certified guides
Getting out on trails – and if there are none – into the wilderness! Days on Trails was founded by experienced guides that are passionate about trekking in remote and wild areas. Throughout our years in the field, we have become more and more convinced that pure trekking adventures don’t need to be out of reach of the capabilities of most people.
Our focus is not on highly exclusive and luxurious “expeditions”. Instead, we invite people to join us in exploring raw nature that is often hidden in plain sight! Why walk the beaten path of the bucket list treks? Why feel like you’re not strong enough or will never know enough to be independent in the mountains?
It is our goal, to take you to the lesser known. To open your eyes to blind spots on the map and to share our craft & tips so you too can have these experiences – and if you wish so – grow into a confident backcountry explorer.
The rune “Naudhiz” symbolizes the imbalance between what we have, and what we need. We are forced to self-reflection by discomforts that appear during our interaction with our world. What might seem negative at first, is also the driving force behind inner growth and what drives us to dig deeper, to look further. Why do we go into deserts and mountains? The answer is different for all of us. What we find, is our real needs and priorities, acceptance of limitations, support through hardships, and a deep appreciation of the raw beauty of our natural world.
Certified guides are the beating heart of our company!
How do you as a guest, know that the person you entrust yourself in, has the experience, training and personality to take the best possible care of you? When joining a trip, you trust us with your valueable time, your physical safety and psychological integrity. We take this very seriously!
We work exclusively with guides holding internationally recognized certifications in guiding and first aid!
Guiding is synonymous for a constant complex decision making process. A guide is first and foremost a person with a broad personal experience. This experience is a prerequisite to be allowed to start multi-year courses. During the curriculum, aspirants are trained and tested, on a wide range of technical skills, environmental knowledge, physiology and group managment. A certified guide has proven to meet internationally agreed upon standards, that have been brought into existence to protect guests hiring guided services. The guide’s decision making process is the basis of enjoyable and safe experiences in remote areas!
Our trips are designed by the guides themselves!
Every guide has areas (s)he’s enthousiastic about and eager to share with others. We want to take you places we like to visit ourselves, and like to do it the way we’d do it ourselves. Guides are free to propose trips themselves, design them and then lead them. Not the other way around where an agent buys a collection of standard services and then finds a person to follow a dotted line and hand out vouchers.
