The most beautiful and most outstanding mountains of the Eastern Alps
This high-altitude tour leads us through the nature park of the Ziller Valley Alps. Parts of our route lead us over the rugged glaciers on the North Tyrolean side as well as the sunny Stabeler Höhenweg (ridgeway)of South Tyrol. Along the way, we will climb the rock pyramid of the Großer Möseler, stay at one of the highest huts in the Eastern Alps -Schwarzenstein hut, and climb one of the most outstanding summits of the Eastern Alps–the Großer Löffler. The Ziller Valley Alps offer magnificent summits, cozy huts, and a breathtaking panorama. Our guides know the area like the back of their hands.

What should I pack in my rucksack?
What you need to pack in your rucksack and what is better left at home can be found in the packing list, which you will find in the detailed information of your tour. You should pay particular attention to your mountain boots. Category B/C compact ankle height shoes are ideal for multi-day tours.
What do I need to know about surefootedness and a head for heights?
If you want to go hiking in mountainous areas, you must be in good health and have a good level of physical fitness. In addition, it is important that you can walk safely in rough and also pathless terrain. The requirements are different for each tour and are explained in the detailed descriptions. There you will also find an overview. If you are not sure whether a tour suits you or not, then give us a call. We will be happy to advise you.
What rental equipment is included in the price?
You will find the rental equipment included in the tour description under "Services & Additional Costs". Rental equipment is included in all our guided tours. We also have equipment hire - if you are out on your own but have forgotten your crampons, you can get them from us.
How do I know what equipment I need for my tour?
You will receive a packing list from us. This will help you to find out what you need for your booked tour!
I don't need rental equipment; do I get a discount?
The provision of rental equipment is a service we offer our guests. Therefore, we cannot grant any discounts if you use your own equipment. Thank you for your understanding! t
What is a hut sleeping bag and what do I need it for?
A hut sleeping bag is either made of silk or cotton and is compulsory on every hut for hygienic reasons, as the duvets, pillowcases and mattress protectors cannot be washed every day. The hut sleeping bag protects you from direct contact with the blankets. We recommend a small silk hut sleeping bag with a small pack size and lighter weight.
Payment at the hut with debit card?
Payment with your debit card is rarely possible in mountain huts! It is therefore necessary to bring sufficient cash with you! Cable cars and hotels can usually be paid for with debit or credit card.
The weather forecast announces bad weather, when will a tour be cancelled / postponed?
Unfortunately, weather forecasts for the mountains are not always as accurate as one might imagine and some weather portals are simply unsuitable for forecasts in the mountains. A reliable forecast is only possible for the following three to five days. Although the 16-day forecasts in particular are popular, the significance is extremely limited. If the conditions are clearly bad and we have to cancel the tour for safety reasons, we will either arrange an alternative date together or you will get your deposit back.
