High - Altitude Tour in the Zillertal Alps
... The most beautiful and most outstanding mountains of the Eastern Alps, 4 days
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.
