Product Description

Details

This guidebook describes the Stubai Rucksack Route (or Höhen Weg) and the Stubai Glacier Tour, two hut-to-hut trekking routes in the Stubai Alps in the Austrian Tyrol. Of all the many Alpine areas, few can match the Stubai as a venue for a first Alpine season. Shapely peaks, good paths and some of the best huts in the Alps make it ideal for the novice who wants to extend their experience beyond Britain. The Stubai Rucksack Route is an ideal route for the novice mountain walker, and links eight huts without crossing glaciers or difficult passes. The Stubai Glacier Route is a hut-to-hut tour through the best of the Stubai that crosses glaciers and has ample opportunities for ascents of easy peaks. Either route can be accomplished in eight to ten days. Both tours are given their own brief introduction with profiles of the route and other vital information to enhance your experience of each area. The routes are illustrated with colour photographs and sketch maps, and the introduction provides vital transport, language, accommodation and equipment information.
