Description

For a full week, I would like to guide you on a trekking adventure in the Alps. I would like to show you how gorgeous this magical and world famous mountain range is. And I would like to show you that beauty from several high alpine spots that will leave you breathless. During this adventure, we will be trekking from Innsbruck, Austria to Merano, Italy and back again. Hence making this an international affair. But knowing no borders, the Alps will remain consistently stunning throughout the trip.

There is a long list of amazing highlights you will get to see on this trip. Just a few examples include.

  • The village of Vent

  • The gorgeous Windachtal

  • Ötztal Panoramaweg,

  • Our Lady into Val Senales (1.500m)

There are also several peaks you will not just get to admire, but to climb to their summits as well. Those peaks include the Peiljoch (2,676m) and the Kreuzspitze (3,450m). In the heights of these peaks you will get some truly spectacular views of the Alps, and it’s surrounding landscape. And every night, you will get to stay in a different mountain hut. Thus making sure you remain in the crisp air and clear skies of the mountains at all times.

Because we will be hiking from 2 to 8 hours during this trip, it is important that participants are in good physical condition.

Trekking through the Alps is an amazing adventure. And for 7 days I would like to lead you on a journey you will never forget, from Innsbruck to Merano. If you would like to join me on this expedition, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
