HHT6 Family Hut Hike in the Austrian Alps

GO Hut to Hut Hiking in France

GO experience the Alps · GO live your bucket list · GO where your colleagues can't find you


  • GO on a family-friendly adventure thanks to shorter days and options for family-sized rooms in the huts

  • GO to a lesser-known area in the Alps with spectacular scenery and no crowds

  • GO get on the trail fast with easy access from Innsbruck

This is one of the hidden gems in the Alps. The lonely trails through this beautiful mountain landscape are well-cared for and well-marked. We aren't quite sure why this tour has not yet been discovered by the masses, but we appreciate that part of its charm. This tour is so close to the Innsbruck Airport, that it gets boots on the trail faster from the time you land than any other tour we have on offer. And if you are looking for hut comfort, this is the place to turn. The huts on this tour all offer smaller rooms, available for families and sometimes even for couples. These rooms fill up quickly, so we recommend booking as early as possible.

Although this is a family-friendly tour, it is not right for every family. Families who are not often active and do not have a lot of experience hiking will find this tour very strenuous. There are some alpine sections and a very limited amount of exposure. On the other hand, families who get outside often together and get active to enjoy nature will find this tour an absolute treat. Please read all the information provided thoroughly, to determine if this tour is right for your family. If you have children under the age of 7, we recommend our Extended Weekend Tour, Hut to Hut with the Little Ones.

Additional Information

Airport: Innsbruck, Austria

The prices included in this tour are for travel in and out of the Innsbruck Airport. This tour offers Munich as an alternative airport, which can be added as an add-on.

Season: mid-June to late-September

The season availability for this tour is driven by hut operating seasons. Huts will often give a general time-frame of when they expect to be open, but will make decisions based on weather and conditions. We recommend booking this tour in March in order to have the best chances with the huts. Expect snowfields on the route through the end of June, and there is a high possibility of snowstorms in September.
