Premium Pearl for HIKING

The majestic peaks of the Stubaier Alps invite the physically fit for many rewarding scrambles and stunning views.

Well, in the summer a whopping 26 Alpine huts wait to spoil you with delicious local foods and snacks. Four mountain huts are ready to provide beds for an overnight stay in the mountains. Hiking is sweaty business. If you’d rather enjoy the mountain world without the sweat, take the 8-people gondola lift and start your hike from the lofty heights of the summit station. For real hiking convenience, a hikers’ shuttle service takes you to the trailhead of your choice and picks you back up after the hike.
