If you love both food and hiking, look no further. This hut-to-hut tour promises to deliver mouthwatering calorie intake in the evenings, offset by breathtaking scenery and a good calorie burn during the day. Five 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 are two standard routings on this tour: one that includes good trails, and another one for the more adventurous which includes exposure and adrenaline.


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