This spectacular tour crosses the Alps from picturesque Bavaria to the glaciated peaks of the Tyrol and on to the Mediterranean Meran. Beautiful mountain huts at 6000 to 9000 feet are mixed with charming hotels and guesthouses down in the valleys. Wildflower-filled meadows, glaciers, and rugged peaks highlight one of Europe's most famous and challenging trails.

Our charming hotels and guesthouses are two or three-star rated, have private baths and are representative of the local culture. The huts are situated in fabulous alpine settings and are dormitory style with up to eight guests per room.

A long descent brings us to our rustic but authentic pension. Includes: (B), (L), (D).

Days 5-6: Braunschweiger Hut - Oetzal. Reach high altitude again with the aid of a gondola and follow a ridge with stunning views in all directions. After lunch at a cozy guesthouse in the Pitzal Valley, hike by a waterfall and marvel at the glacier tongues hanging from the steep walls above. Our century-old hut is set among a chain of glaciated mountains dominated by the Wildspitze. Then it's on to our highest point on the traverse where we look for long-horned Steinbocke before descending to the famous Oetzal, where the "Glacier Mummy" was discovered. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
