Get ready to challenge yourself and join experienced guide, Filippo on this amazing in South Tyrol in Italy. This traverse will take you up the Hintergrat Ridge, across the summit of Ortler, and down the Normal Route, offering stunning views of the surrounding Alps the entire way.



2 Days

Jun - Sep




* Climb to the top of South Tyrol

* Explore one of the most scenic ridges in the alps

* Two-day guided tour with overnight stay at the Coston/Hintergrat Hut.


Climb Ortler, the highest peak in South Tyrol, via the Hintergrat ridge in summer. This challenging route offers stunning views of the surrounding Alps, but it is important to be well-prepared and experienced before attempting it.

Ortler is the highest mountain in the Ortler Alps, and the highest peak in the province of South Tyrol. This titanic glaciated mountain has an outstanding peak of 3,905 meters (12,812 feet) and is known for its challenging mountaineering routes, and its stunning views of the surrounding Alps.

On day one, we will meet in Solda and check our backpacks and equipment. Then, we will hike to the Coston/Hintergrat Hut for a half-board overnight stay.

On day two, we will wake up early and ascend the Hintergrat ridge. The first section is over broken rocks and steep snow, followed by a rocky ridge with mixed and rock passages around grade III (with two grade IV passages). The scenery is spectacular. (about 5-6 hours) Once we reach the summit, we will descend by the normal route on the glacier and equipped rock passages to the Payer Hut. Finally, we will hike back to the starting point.

I'm here to help you prepare and guide you every step of the way, so you can fully enjoy your adventure on the Hintergrat Ridge.
