About

Dear Friends of Leo Trippi,

When we founded Leo Trippi we set out to become a market leader in our niche of luxury ski chalets – delivering exceptional holidays to our clients. Today we are proud to have been recognised as the ‘World’s Best Ski Travel Agent’ for five consecutive years cementing our place as a leading authority. We have slowly expanded our offering to include some of the best villas and tailor-made journeys ensuring we maintain our expertise along the way.

We have a strong Swiss heritage dating back to 1882 when my great-grandfather, Leo Trippi, ran some of the most iconic destination hotels in the Engadin and Italy. Our roots remain firmly in the Alps with offices in the flagship Swiss resorts of St Moritz, Verbier & Zermatt as well as the United Kingdom and Russia.

Together with my co-founders Oli Stastny and Auret van Zyl we believe that the traditional approach to travel planning is the way forward. With comprehensive destination knowledge and strong relationships with partners and clients, it is our experienced and multilingual team which makes us so special. We regularly visit our destinations and meet with our suppliers to make sure we are offering the best service to our clients who come from all corners of the world.

We encourage you to call us and experience for yourself how we are different.

Regards,

Florian Steiger
