Tour character & demands
The hiking tours in the "mountain hiking" category lead you along hiking paths where sure-footedness and sometimes a head for heights are required. Particularly on the steeper, sometimes unpaved sections, surefootedness is an advantage. The daily stages are scheduled to take between four and about six and a half hours. On some mountain hiking tours, you can also expect smaller ascents to the summit. On a mountain hike, you will cover longer distances and climb a few metres in altitude. This is our difficulty level three, but on the day tours you will be rewarded with unforgettable-beautiful views and hiking experiences that you will remember for a long time.
