This trip features the most spectacular part of Europe's most famous long distance hike "E5". It crosses the Alps from picturesque Bavaria across the mighty and partly glaciated mountains of Tyrol in Austria to the Mediterranean town of Meran in Italy.110 km length and some 6,000m of elevation gain makes this a demanding but rewarding trip full of awesome scenery, ancient culture and unique accommodations. The so called E5 (European long distance trail number 5) has become the trail to do for the advanced hiker. Join our knowledgeable mountain guides into an adventure of lifetime through 3 different countries.The highlights of this trip are the distinct unique valleys, mountains and cultural areas which you will get to know first-hand and in company of an experienced mountain guide. The E5 is a challenging trail with 5-6 hours of daily hiking time. However, transportation of luggage is provided and we only have to carry our day pack.
The Dolomites, well known for sheer pinnacles and high walls, are the most stunning mountains in the eastern Alps. This demanding but rewarding trek takes us through wildflower-filled alpine meadows, past blue and green lakes, and above tree line at over 10,000 feet. We explore some of the region's best landmarks and towns including the Tre Cimes Di Lavaredo, Cortina d'Ampezzo Olympic village and the Rosengarten Mountains.
From Mont Blanc's glacier-clad 15,771' summit, the highest in Western Europe, sublime alpine valleys radiate to three countries creating some of the most awe-inspiring mountain landscapes on the planet. We circle this great peak crossing from France to Italy and Switzerland on foot, savoring the changes in language, architecture and cuisine as much as the magnificent scenery itself.
