Ibexes, alpine pastures, lakes & 3,000 m peaks

Imagine you are hiking along the high alpine Ötztal Trek. For entire days you will see nothing but 3,000 meter peaks, alpine pasturelands, mountain lakes and ibexes (well, there may also be a few two-legged mountain fans). Sometimes you will be gasping for breath, but more often you are in a rush of happiness. It's amazing how much adventure you can fit into a short break! What’s best: thanks to perfect organization, you can simply enjoy this guided hut hike
