This Alps guided trek is a must-do for all global hiking enthusiasts! Crossing over the spine of the Alps, we’ll explore from Germany to Austria to Italy in one spectacular itinerary.

The views on our hikes are breath-taking with innumerable dramatic peaks, stunning lakes, cascading waterfalls and much more. The trek is demanding, but guests carry only a light backpack as the bulk of our luggage is transferred to the next accommodation most days. In the evenings, you will enjoy German, Austrian and Italian cooking, paired with a hearty serving of local hospitality in the traditional alpine villages we visit. Starting in Munich, hiking to Innsbruck and eventually ending our traverse of the Alps in Venice is an unforgettable way to explore world renowned cities, visit historic sites and experience the soaring peaks and towering rock walls that the Alps are famous for and that first inspired early mountaineers.
