Garmisch – Meran Alps hut to hut hiking tour


A 7-day hiking tour around Garmisch and Meran, starting from the highest peak in Germany and staying in different mountain huts, with an IFMGA mountain guide.

Not specified


7 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep


Join me for this exciting 7-day hiking tour around Garmisch and Meran, crossing the Alps and wandering through remote valleys far from the beaten tracks.

This adventure starts in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, a mountain resort in Bavaria, Germany. From there, we’ll travel to the Zugspitze (2962 m), the highest peak in that country, right in the border with Austria.

Then, we’ll hike over the main Alpine ridge towards the Italian town of Meran, in the South Tyrol. 

During this trip, we’ll be hiking between 5 and 7 hours each day and use from time to tome taxis or the cableway.

Besides, we’ll spend the nights in different mountain huts. Some of them are located in quite remote places, so you’ll find yourself in beautiful unspoiled environments.

In fact, this tour is a great alternative if you want to avoid the crowds in the classic E5.

It’s also a wonderful opportunity for enthusiastic hikers with some previous experience, as it doesn’t involve much difficulty.

Please contact me if you want to be a part of this trip around Garmisch and Meran. I am a local IFMGA mountain guide and I’ll be happy to show you this amazing region of the Alps.

About the guide

My passion for nature and the mountains led me to become a mountain guide. I started my career as a pilot and, for a while, dedicated my life to university. However, over the years, my love for the mountains increased.

Since then, I have been working as a mountain guide, taking my clients on great ski and climbing adventures. I guide around my country and also around Europe: Spain, Italy, France, England, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Norway. I sometimes also go to Chile, Canada, Nepal, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey.

As an IFMGA certified mountain guide, it is a pleasure for me to guide people from all over the world to these amazing destinations. My main objective is to have you enjoy a great time in the mountains while keeping you safe.

I invite you to have a look at the mountain programs and tours I propose. In the case you want to join one of them and if I'm not available, you'll be going with Alex or Rudi, IFMGA certified guides, friends of mine.

What people are saying about this trip

Sergei Orel


July, 2019

Explore-Share took advantage of my inexperience. I had asked for a beginner level trip, instead, they recommended me a rather advanced trip. Neither Explore-Share nor the guide were forthcoming with information until the very last moment. The guide sold my participation to another outfit about a week before the trip. Neither Explore-Share neither the guide are trustworthy and can be relied upon in making arrangements.
