MT5 Hut to Hut with the Little Ones

GO spend time with young children in nature


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


  • GO enjoy a hike suitable for children as young as 2 years old

  • GO on an adventure designed to allow children plenty of time for exploring

  • GO book early, because these huts book up quickly on the weekends

This is a great first hut to hut hiking tour with young children. The huts are suitable for children from 2 years old and each have playgrounds and other kid-friendly activities. The assistance of a gondola on the first day keeps overall elevation gain to a minimum, and the hikes never last more than 1:00 (adult hiking time) per day. Check out the detailed itinerary to see if this might work for your family. 

Additional Information

Season: May to mid-November

Tours in May and October should consider hiking up (1 hour 30 minutse) instead of the gondola, due to muddy conditions on the trail. It may be possible to do this tour January through March, although challenging conditions may exist. Please contact us for more information.
