You have been dreaming of crossing the Alps for a long time?
Although this tour brings you “only” over the Wetterstein and through the German-Austrian nature park of the Karwendel Mountains to the first main ridge of the Northern Alps over the Inn Valley. But still!
In eight days you will experience the Bavarian hospitality, the breathtaking wild beauty of the Northern Alps and the historical cultural area of Southern Bavaria in an inimitable intensity. Yes. You will feel the tour in your legs – and yes, it will pull you back to continue this tour one day all the way to Merano in South Tyrol. Welcome to the realm of the mountains!
The lush green mountains of Bavaria are among the most beautiful natural formations of the Alps. Gorges and deeply cut valleys lead up to the alpine pastures and peaks of the Wetterstein and Karwendel mountains. Impressive views await you on your trekking tour – always framed by a rugged, wildly romantic mountain backdrop. The choice of peaks, high-altitude trails and cozy mountain huts is almost inexhaustible.
You cross the Karwendel National Park up to the Nordkette. From there you float towards the end of the tour without any descent pains 😊 with the cable car into the valley to Innsbruck.
Demanding trekking tour with tours from 4.5 to 7.5 hours. They partly hike in the high alpine area. Please bring surefootedness and hiking experience.
