Highlights

  • GO enjoy meals that were introduced to the huts by prestigous Michelin-star chefs

  • GO enjoy jaw-dropping views with less crowds

If you love both food and hiking, look no further. This hut-to-hut hiking tour in Austria promises to deliver mouthwatering calorie intake in the evenings, offset by breathtaking scenery and a good calorie burn during the day. Four of the six huts on this tour are visited in early July by top chefs from around the world, who prepare specialties with local ingredients for the guests. The recipes stay at the huts throughout the season, and the huts all have a wide variety of other dishes that include local ingredients.

There is a short cabled section over one of the passes with some exposure.

This tour can be heavily customized to meet just about any fitness and desired comfort level.
