  • Positive Impressive. Beautiful forests. The huts were closed, but I could use the winter quarters. Almost no people hiking. Great weather, cold and clear.

  • 5-Day Trek in Alps
  • Hi all,

    A friend and I are looking to do a 5 day hike in the Alps in September. We would need the start/finish of the trail to have access to public transport. We are wanting to stay in mountain huts and walk on a relatively quiet trail. We are fit and well-walked but not professional mountaineers.

    Any recommendations?

    Many thanks in advance!

  • Alte via 1 versus Mont blanc tour en stubai
  • Kan iemand een vergelijk maken tussen deze trekkings qua zwaarte, hutten, omgeving?
    • Henk Nouws 2014-03-28 11:27:56
    • Ik heb Mont Blanc en Alta Via 1 gelopen, en ben ook in Stubai geweest. Alledrie goed te doen.

      Tour du Mont Blanc: ik heb wat varianten genomen, dus meer omhoog en omlaag, en dat maakt de TMB fysiek wel inspannender. De hutten zijn superdruk, als je al plek vindt: van te voren reserveren! Deze route is veel te populair; "over the top" om zo te zeggen.

      Alta Via 1: minder klimmen en dalen, maar hier en daar wel erg steil, en vaak puinhellingen. Daardoor iets riskanter. Erg indrukwekkend. Ik liep in het najaar, en kan dus niets zeggen over de hutten.

      Stubai: mainstream Alpen. Voor mij ook lang geleden. Het staat me bij dat het niet moeilijk of gevaarlijk was. Ik weet niet hoe het is met de gletschers momenteel. De Oostenrijkse hutten zijn imo wat ontspannener dan die bij de TMB.
