Welcome to Alpinkreaktiv – Hiking and Trekking for Women
Since 2001 we’ve offered active and nature friendly women’s journeys. Join us on marvelous treks and hikes in very special regions. We have time to discover the nature, the culture and tradition and enjoy meeting local people. We walk in small groups, travel individually and are always are open to your wishes. No matter if we stay in cabins, in comfortable luxury hotels, if we hike or trek – the most important aspect is to have joyful and relaxing days in an outstanding region.
Mostly the treks are in the Alps. We are very experienced in all the Alps between Nice and Trieste. We also offer trekking in Nepal and Morocco as well as more comfortable hiking & cultural tours in Tirol, Italy and Armenia. For all friends of wintertime and snow we have fantastic snowshoeing tours. We offer easy to medium trips during which we stay at the same hut and explore the mountains with snowshoes. We go to the Dolomites in Italy. On request we offer additional snowshoeing for you individually.
If you have any need of support regarding your planning, your journey to Europe or some additional holidays please let us know. We will be glad to give you all information and support. In our calendar we mention cities which we think are worth a visit if you have enough time. Of course we will arrange accommodation, sightseeing guide etc. according to your wishes. On request we offer you an individually planned trek.

MARCH 28 – APRIL 21, 2019: TREKKING IN NEPAL – EVEREST BASECAMP TREK WITH KALA PATTHAR SUMMIT
We follow the old ‘Hillary-Route’ from Bhandar (close to Jiri) through Solu region. Trekking in this very original region means to learn about the nature, the culture and tradition and of course to meet the local people. We acclimatize well during the first week and reach the bazar village Namche Bazar. Further we visit Tengboche with it’s outstanding monastery and climb up to 4000 m in Khumbu region. The trek follows good pathes up to the icy region right below Mount Everest. We visit the Base Camp and one morning we start very early to reach the summit of Kala Patthar (5600 m). This summit ascent is optional.
On our way back to Lukla we will be happy to see all the blooming Rhododendron and Magnolia trees. From Lukla we will fly back to Kathmandu and spend some days sightseeing in the old kingtown Bhaktapur, nearby Kathmandu.

About our guides
Gudrun: I grew up close to the Alps and after studying educational science and some years working at Salzburg University I decided to work as a guide. I’ve had my own business for 14 years guiding trekking trips are exclusively for women. I like the cooperative and communicative way of all woman groups. Once I did a private trek across the Pyrenees and the Alps from west to east. Kiru and I carried our tent and lived mostly in the mountains. This surely was a great summer and a wonderful experience.
Kiru B.: I grew up in Munich. Since I was a child I’ve loved to hike in the mountains. I’m also fascinated of the winter-wonder-landscape and love snowshoeing. For me trekking means learning about the nature and the local people. Together with Gudrun I trekked across the Alps which was a special time for me.
Max. 14 persons, with a second guide 16. For snowshoeing max. 10 persons
