Highlights trip


Day to day planning

Arrival day. From 14:00 you will have access to your hotel room. You can use the wellness from the moment you arrive. At 18:00 we will be meeting in the yoga room of the hotel so you can enjoy a nice yoga session. After the yoga session, you will have some time for yourself, after which dinner is waiting for us. Afterwards you will receive some information about the hike and we can get to know each other in an informal way in the ‘stube’ of the hotel

We start with a yoga session in the morning before having some breakfast. After breakfast we head into the mountains for a beautiful hike, for which we take a packed lunch for on the road. In the late afternoon we return to the hotel and you ́re free to choose if you want to do something for yourselves or enjoy the wellness. After dinner there is a relaxed yoga session on the program.

Today we will also start with a yoga session! Afterwards we will have breakfast together and pack our things, because the next night we will be sleeping in a mountain hut! The hike to the mountain hut takes about six hours, we will have lunch on the way at a place where we can enjoy some beautiful views. If you still have energy left on arrival, I will take you a little further into the mountains! Once evening falls, the hut innkeeper provides a good meal. We will be spending the night in a multiple sleeping room!

Today we get up early to see the sunrise from a beautiful viewpoint! The condition is that the weather needs to cooperate. Afterwards we enjoy a hearty breakfast back in the hut! Then we put on our hiking boots again, pack our backpack and are ready for the trip back to the hotel in the valley, we then walk for about six hours. Arriving at the hotel you can reward yourself with a visit to the wellness, or maybe you want to read a good book? Afterwards we will enjoy dinner and end the active day with a yoga session to give the body the relaxation it deserves.

We are almost at the end of our trip. Breakfast is a little later today, followed by the last yoga session at 10:30 AM. After this yoga session it is time to say goodbye and go home with a good feeling.

About your guide

‘Energetic, enthusiastic, a little bit crazy, a leader, empathetic, and a go-getter’ according to the people around her, those are the words that characterize Nicky, the founder of She feels alive in the mountains.

Nicky has enjoyed working as a gym teacher at primary, secondary and high school for years. During holidays, she was drawn to the mountains, so she decided to exchange the gym for the mountains. She says it herself: ‘In the mountains I feel most ‘alive’. In 2021 she took a radical decision, changing course and started guiding in the Balkan mountains, the Italian Dolomites and Morocco. She then left Nepal for 3 months to discover mountaineering under extreme conditions. After gaining this experience, she decided to do the education to become an Austrian mountain hiking guide.

In addition, Nicky first followed a yoga training course in the Netherlands and then in India. Her approach to yoga is that it doesn’t have to be floaty. The essence of yoga is central to her: moving on your breathing to have your mind become calmer and less influenced by external factors in return. By seeking out more of the connection with the body, subtleties can be discovered in movement and that is precisely what makes yoga a wonderful tool to live in the here and now, and most of all to enjoy it!
