Highlights – Selva:  Selva Gardena is situated at an altitude of 1563 meters (5,126 feet) above sea level.  The charming town is in one of the most beautiful valleys in the Dolomites, Val Gardena, and is surrounded by the mountains Sella and Sassolungo.  Hiking here is like no other place in the Alps.  The amazing shapes of the mountains will leave an impression of how grand and diverse the Alps are.  Stunningly beautiful.

Highlights – Ginzling:  The tiny hamlet of Ginzling sits at the doorstep of the majestic Nature Park Zillertal Alps, the largest protected land area of the Alps, covering 379 square kilometers (235 miles).  We will hike to the Pfisterjoch Hut on the Austrian and Italian border via the Adlerweg (Eagle’s way). The Adlerweg goes across the Austrian Tyrol. It’s a 300km (186 mile) trekking route from St Johann to St Anton.  We will also hike to the magnificent Berliner Hut a one of a kind place.  It truly is magnificent.

Highlights – Neuschwanstein Castle:  In route from Ginzling to Neustift we visit the famous Neuschawnstein Castle.  The castle was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and in honor of Richard Wagner.  A beautiful place especially in the Fall when the leaves are changing.

Highlights – Neustift:  Top of Tyrol is a mountain-top viewing platform placed above the Stubai Glacier at 3210 meters (10,528 feet.)  The view is amazing.  In the distance you can see the unique shapes of the Dolomites. Seeing them from afar really adds to the grandeur of hiking them.
