About Leo Trippi
Who Are We?
Founded by Florian Steiger, Oli Stastny and Auret van Zyl, Leo Trippi is an award-winning specialist travel company providing luxury chalets & tailor-made mountain trips around the world. The name Leo Trippi originates from Florian’s great-grandfather, a famous hotelier born in 1882 who ran three hotels in Pontresina and one in Sicily. These were the ‘go-to’ places to stay for European socialites, business tycoons and royalty. Fast forward a century and Leo Trippi is continuing the tradition as a leading authority in luxury ski chalets and mountain holidays.
Today we are honoured to have been recognised as the “World’s Best Ski Travel Agent” at the World Ski Awards for seven consecutive years. With offices in the flagship resorts of St. Moritz, Verbier and Zermatt as well as the United Kingdom and Moscow, Leo Trippi’s roots remain firmly in the Alps. These deep-rooted contacts along with our multilingual team’s comprehensive destination knowledge gives us access to off-market properties, services and experiences that our competitors cannot offer.
However, first and foremost our dedicated team is passionate about understanding what you want to get out of your mountain holiday and pairing you with the perfect resort and property. We regularly visit our destinations and meet with our suppliers to ensure we are offering luxury chalets that meet our high standards as well as providing exceptional service. Our team can also help you plan your holiday from start to finish, whether that be advising on and booking ski schools and restaurants or organising an incredible heli-picnic at the top of a glacier.
Whilst the cornerstone of our chalet portfolio remains in the Alps, we have also expanded further afield to include luxury homes in the USA and Japan as well as outstanding lodges in the Arctic. If you are looking for something a little different, then why not consider one of our inspiring tailor-made mountain experiences or journeys? From a supercar driving tour through the Swiss Alps to a heli-ski safari or a luxury golf, wine and wellness tour, at Leo Trippi we are on hand to facilitate your bespoke mountain holiday.
