I am offering an unforgettable mountain outing around one of the most beautiful alpine areas of Europe. It is a 6-day hiking experience connecting the Algäu Alps and the Silvretta Alps, in the countries of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

We will meet in the Bavarian town of Oberstdorf (Germany) and take a bus to Kleinwalsertal, a high valley surrounded by the Allgäu Alps, located at the east of Vorarlberg, Austria. A  few hours later we will be crossing the Hochtann Mountain Pass and taking another bus to Zug, in Switzerland.

The following days we will hike around Stierloch (2,009 m), with incredibles views of the peak Roggalspitze (2,673 m) and the lake Spuller See. We will get to the summit of several peaks such as Kaltenberg (2,686 m), and enjoy unique views of imposing mountains such as Patteriol (3,056 m).

The highlight of this tour is climbing the Piz Buin (3,312 m) the most popular peak of the Silvretta Alps, on the border between Switzerland and Austria. The route is a gentle glacier and rock tour. At the top, you will see the impressive panorama that stretches from the high Tyrolean mountains to the Tödi.

The trails are usually well recognizable, but partly steep. You should have hiking experience and be sure-footed. Furthermore, you have to be prepared for 7-hours walks at an altitude of 1,200 meters.

During the trip you will eat delicious food in the most charming and comfortable huts around the Alps. Some of the refuges where we will stay are Kaltenberg, Konstanzer and Wiesbadener.

So, what are you waiting for? If you want to live a real hiking adventure going from the Allgau Alps to Piz Buin, please contact me! Let me guide you in this trip that you won’t forget!
