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.
