Who Are Leo Trippi?
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 and this years World Ski Awards winner of World’s Best Ski Agent so you know you are in safe hands.
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.
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 their competitors cannot offer.
However, first and foremost their 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. They regularly visit their destinations and meet with suppliers to ensure they are offering luxury chalets that meet their very high standards as well as providing exceptional service. Their 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 their chalet portfolio remains in the Alps, they 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 their 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 they are on hand to facilitate your bespoke mountain holiday.
