HHT6 Hut to Hut Light 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 tour is feasible from mid-June to mid-September, it is likely to encounter problematic snowfields in late-June, and snowstorms in early September.
