Trans Tyrol: Garmisch – Innsbruck
The mountains of Bavaria and Tyrol are some of the most spectacular scenery of the Alps. Gorges and deeply cut valleys lead up to alpine pastures and intimidating summits of Wetterstein- and Karwendel massif. During this trekking tour you can expect stunning views, surrounded by ragged peaks. There is an almost unbelievable number of summits, high altitude paths and rustic alpine cabins.
