Welcome! Pink Alpine is the main tour operator for gay travelers in Switzerland. We have known all the destinations of alpine outdoorsports very well for years. We can give you in depth advice and, thanks to our experience, guarantee the best possible conditions. We wanted to bring the world of small group adventure travel to gay men, their friends and family. Outdoor enthusiasts are able to experience in small groups and under expert guidance Switzerland, Bavaria and Northern Italy more closely. In addition to sporting activities excellent hotels, trained and experienced guides as well as the high-standing sports infrastructure guarantee a memorable holiday. Our claim is: outdoorsports with style!

We are a member of the guarantee fund of the Swiss Travel Industry and the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA). We are gay owned and well experienced in guiding international groups. René Böhlen is the managing director of Pink Alpine.

Our tours and trips are free and tolerant places of encounter where diversity and respect are appreciated and lived. For this reason we do not refer to ourselves as «gay-friendly», but go beyond that and call ourselves «hetero-friendly».

Each of our trips is designed for gay travelers so that they can experience the travel destinations in their beauty and powerfulness. Cross-country skiing, mountain biking, hiking, running and skiing are more fun in small groups with like-minded people. The majority of the tours are held in gender-divided groups. They vary in the requirements regarding technique and fitness. There are offers for beginners as well as trips where prior knowledge and experience in the mountains will be expected.
