Mountain Hiking


Where Surefootedness is an Advantage

During a mountain hiking tour magnificent views and panoramas open up in front of you. At the end of each stage you can be proud of yourself to have mastered the tour. Eurohike mountain hiking tours are designed for advanced and experienced hikers. Surefootedness is prerequisite during steep and often unsecured, unpaved ascents.

During mountain hiking you cover longer distances and tackle several metres in altitude. The hiking paths are often unpaved and daily walking times range between four to six hours. There will also be one or more summit ascents. At the end of such an ascent you are rewarded with stunning views, which definitely motivate to persevere and reach the top. In order for you to enjoy ascents and high-altitude paths to the full, a good fitness level is required.

Even as an advanced mountain hiker you too get to enjoy the Eurohike service extras. The Eurohike luggage transfer is included in the tour price. Your heavy rucksacks are transported daily from one hotel to the next.

The Eurohike-team has researched the most beautiful spots and tested them all in person.

Highlights of the tour in the Bavarian & Salzburg Alps at a glance: Königssee & Berchtesgaden National Park: Steeply rising rock walls and a nature reserve straight out of a picture book fill the eyes. If you look closely, you might catch a glimpse of a chamois or a shy marmot. Alpine huts with homemade delicacies: A landscape with scenery as romantic as the famous Austrian ‘Heimatfilms’. Sitting right in the middle of it are numerous huts. Take a break and enjoy the hearty creations of the landlords. Torrener Joch & Jenner: Expect a long climb to the border crossing and on to the Jenner summit. And at Bluntautal, you will be rewarded with unique alpine landscape and rugged rock formations.
