06.08. - 11.08.2017For: 6 daysPrice: 475 € per person
We start from Scheffau and walk to the most westerly hut in the Kaiser Mountain Range, the Waller Alm. Following the famous Tirolean Eagles Way along the south side of the Wilder Kaiser we ascend the Hoch Egg from which we will enjoy views into Bavaria and up the Inn Valley towards Innsbruck. We will then continue to the Kaindl Hut, enjoying an interesting path and stunning views along the way. The hut itself is located amongst pretty alpine pastures.
On the second day after a short walk from the hut we will meet the narrow Bettlersteig Pathway which we descend to reach the Anton Karg Haus. This is our first opportunity to test our head for heights! After a break we will then set off for the Stripsenjoch Haus where we will sleep. The path takes us below the amazing rock faces of the Totenkirchls, one of the famous Kaiser peaks. The Stripsenjoch Hut is well-used by climbers as it is located at the base of many classic alpine ascents and therefore enjoys fantastic views.
Over the next few days we will walk over meadows, undertake some via ferrata, follow some stunning pathways to make the most of what the Wilder Kaiser has to offer. We will also ascend the highest Kaiser Peak, the Ellmauer Halt at 2344m from where we can enjoy a 360° panorama of the Alps.
On the sixth day we will return to Scheffau where we will finish the tour with coffee and cake.
