Across the Alps Hiking Tour

Hike Across the Alps from Germany to Austria to Italy

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.
