About TerraTreks

Why You Should Trust Your Adventures to TerraTreks





Susan Sontag

I started TerraTreks for three reasons:  I love to hike, I love to  travel, meet new people, encounter different cultures, and eat great food, and to keep me busy when I retire.  But most important, I want to make treks and hikes, like those I've experienced over the years, doable for more people. There is nothing like the feeling I get when I am standing on a summit with a 360 degree view of jagged peaks and spires, watching white puffy clouds float in a deep blue sky.  In my next life I want to be a bird in the Dolomites.

For the past 30 years I've taught college students about the world of Finance.  During my four months off I spend summers hiking in some of the most amazing places on earth.  In winter I ski and snowshoe as much as possible.  In fact, I met the guide for TerraTreks while heliskiing in Canada. 

You feel your soul when you hike.

There are many adventure companies to choose from.  What sets TerraTreks apart from the others is personal attention and value.  I am doing this because I love it.  This is a very small operation.  In fact, I am it, along with the person I think is the best guide in all of Europe.  That means I can give you more and charge less.  Compare a TerraTreks hike through the Dolomites with other similar hikes.  No other company does a 9-day trip with treks to more iconic sites, provides private rooms in the highest rated Rifugios and 4 and 5 star hotels, transports luggage from hut to hut, and sends the founding partner and trip concierge, in addition to the guide, on every hike, and at such a competitive price.  Check it out for yourself then come explore with TerraTreks.
