Inspiration Adventure, EGO to WEGO, 4-day Hut Hike Wilder Kaiser, Tirol, Austria
THE DEFINITE TOUR ON THIS EVENT HAS TO BE DETERMINED YET. IT WAS PLANNED AS A 3 DAY TOUR BUT DUE TO THE BANK HOLIDAY IT WILL BE 4 DAYS AND THE TOUR HAS TO BE ADAPTED!
Majestic, rugged, unbelievably vast: This is the mountain range of the Wild Kaiser, a name which translates to the ‘Wild Emperor’ — a name these mountains wear like a well-fitting crown. Pictures of their precipitous limestone faces and deep canyons have been the stuff of Alpinists’ dreams for centuries. Here, in these epic mountains, one of the best multi-day hiking trails in the Alps have their starting point: The 4-day hut hike on the sunny south face of the Kaiser.
The trail will give you the opportunity to dive deep into the Emperor’s mystic realms. And as you go, you’ll be able to sample the famed hospitality of the people who call this region home.
This event includes 2 nights in a hut / hostel / hotel. We will hike from hut to hut and spend the night there. So you need to take fresh clothes, towel etc.
