With its 413 kilometers and total elevation gain of 31,000 meters, Adlerweg (The Eagle Walk) is a lifelong project for most hikers. Most people will never find the necessary time to hike the whole route, so we prepared a shorter version, taking you across the trail’s most scenic stages through the Karwendel Alps.

You need only spend five days on the Adlerweg to feel as if you hiked the whole route. From the picturesque alpine villages to the authentic mountain huts, towering peaks, and mountain passes, your stroll through the heart of Tyrol will gain you a lifetime of unforgettable memories.

80 kilometers and 4500 meters of elevation gain over 5 days is still a worthy challenge that not everybody can undertake. You will hike more kilometers per day than a usual hiker on the Adlerweg. But the fulfillment and satisfaction you will feel when you reach your final destination are indescribable.

Along the way, you will experience how peaceful it feels to spend a night in the heart of the Alps, sleeping in two high-altitude lodges and an enchanting alpine village. The local cuisine will enthuse you just as much, if not more.

Planning a multi-day hut-to-hut hike can be tiresome, especially in a foreign country. Consequently, we want to make it as uncomplicated as possible for you. We will book all your accommodations in advance, provide you with a detailed written guide with an itinerary, and equip you with a precise GPS track of the planned route.

Dust off your backpack and start preparing for the ultimate experience of your life hiking the Adlerweg!
