Times they are a-changing

Build your team in an outdoor meeting space
Breathe, ski and reach beyond the horizons.
Come with us!


IN THE BEGINNING…
United by a passion for skiing and service, we met in July 2006 under a fruit tree on the Royal Island in Stockholm. Erik had just finished Business School after 12 skiing seasons, Johan flew in from his summer hide-away in Norway, Henrik from his base at the foot of Monterosa and Peffe from another hiking session in the French Alps. It was easy to decide to start Alpine Legends, where our lifestyle could nurture our souls, bodies and families. Anna, a favorite choice, was called in from her office work in Luzern, to add some female wisdom and experience. And here we are, a group of passionate professionals with an ocean of experiences, at your service.

  • We know our mountains.

    Group trips to the mountains have never been easier. We take care of everything from A-Z, leaving you with every ounce of energy to have a great time. However high your demands, we will do our utmost to cater for them.
  • We know that beautiful views breed beautiful thoughts.

    Meetings between people have everything to gain from beautiful surroundings. Already in ancient Greece they acknowledged the effect of stunning views on insight. Say what you want about the Alps, you cannot deny their spectacular beauty.
  • We understand that the journey is not the goal.

    A company-trip is not a holiday. We are talking about a whole different level of efficiency and timing. The purpose with the trip is to become a better and prosperous company - which is exactly what we are specialized in.
  • We have the dream job.

    Sure, we do ski during working hours! But the best part about our job is actually to make sure that you are having a great time. To guide you around the mountain, to find the conference rooms you didn't know existed, and of course show you our favorite restaurants.
  • We love regulars.

    We customize the trip to your demands. We want you and your group to be so pleased that you come back for more, year after year! It's a win-win concept for all parties involved.
  • We offer an unlimited amount of destinations.

    We bring groups to mountains all around the world, so we are pretty confident when we say that we can offer destinations you may have never heard of. Curious? Please do give us a call!

Inspiration

  • Lapland / North of the Arctic Circle

    In recent years, we have rekindled a fondness for our own mighty mountain range in northern Scandinavia. Many groups have experienced the endless and ski-friendly mountains around Abisko and Riksgränsen, as well as the well-groomed pistes in convivial Björkliden.

  • Venerable Mürren

    In our experience, Mürren leaves no-one unimpressed. The village is a literal cliffhanger at 400 meters above the Lauterbrunnen valley, right in the middle of the Swiss Berner Oberland. The spectacular view includes the classic peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Film-enthusiasts will be happy to know they are in the exact location where “In Her Majesty’s Secret Service” was filmed in 1967. [:]

  • Bottomless powder and belly dancing in Turkey

    Where do you go with six guys who go skiing more in a week, than most do in a season? Where do you go with six guys who have been skiing with us as long as we can remember? closer to 30 years … Why not Turkey with its seven ski resorts?

  • Meetings on a Vespa in Piemonte

    Our popular concept of a Vespa-safari is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, no matter the season. Anyone could manage these class 1 mopeds, and the feeling reminds you of the feeling of skiing together. Only here you’re riding in shorts and a t-shirt. [:]

  • Thermal bath and culinary gems

    Our dear clients the lawyers did not want to stay in Reykjavik as everyone else. Therefore, we had the first meeting and accommodation at the beautiful and comfortable B&B Frost and Fire, located at a waterfall in the small village of Hveragerdi, at the foot of the mountain.[:]

    “All went awesome!  We had an amazing time and everyone was so excited. Your guides were brilliant as always. Hats off to all 3 of them – Anna, Hasse and Love!
    Many thanks for everything, even the weather !! Did you plan that too 🤣🤣?”
    Roberta Geres, Mr Green part of William Hill

    “It was the first ski conference that I’ve been on with my new company and it certainly exceeded all expectations. Thank you so much for all of your efforts both before and during the conference – you were all constantly cheery and helpful whenever I had any questions.

    A highlight was the unforgettable dinner at El Paradiso on Friday night. Everything from the music upon arrival, the candle-lit walk and ice sculptures made the evening truly special.

    Please pass on my thanks to all who were involved, but especially Erik, Tatiana, Henrik, and whoever organised the conditions on Thursday and Sunday!”

    Anna, Congress for consultants

    “Many thanks to you and the team for an excellently run conference last week. I have been to many of these types of events in my corporate travels and the work that Alpine Legends did for our team far exceeded any of my past experiences.

    Not only were you tight and accurate, but you all did it in a way that you treated us as partners and friends rather than simply clients.”
