The history of our company dates back to 1991 when the company Alpintreff Berg & Ski Sport was founded; a guiding and travel agency for mountaineering and skiing based in the Netherlands with a subsidiary in Austria. In the golden years our guides and instructors welcomed over 2000 guests per year at various locations in the Alpes (Austria, France, Switzerland, Italy and Germany). Both in summer and winter. Alpintreff was also responsible for training and assessing instructor courses for the Dutch Mountain Association (NKBV).
To prepare our guests for activities in Alpes we started to facilitate courses and trainings in the Netherlands under the brandname Outdoor Academy: first aid, navigation, sports climbing, risk management, etc.
Around the millennium Alpintreff & Outdoor Academy became market leader in outdoor travel.
Our successful place in the market attrackted a lot of sponsors (The North Face, Black Diamond, Scarpa, Petzl, BEAL, Suunto, Julbo, SIGG and later Mammut Sports).
