Description

Stubai is not a German pastry, but a massif in the Austrian Alps, in the Tyrol. Have you never been there? Great! Because the goal of the trip I propose here is to make you discover this beautiful alpine region ski touring.

The beer is great, the food is copious and delicious, and of course the ski is glorious! We get to enjoy a true high mountain environment.

The Franz Senn refuge, at 2100 m, is a very cozy mountain hut. In addition, the strategic location allows us to access the best tours in the massif.

I will take you on glaciers, sometimes using crampons.

I particularly love the fact that the stay is very authentic and we are immersed in the Austrian mountain culture.
