Sample Itinerary - subject to changes

Meals included: none
Overnight in Kitzbühel

Day 2: Kitzbühel to Jochberg
Starting from Kitzbühel, you walk comfortably below the Kitzbüheler Südberge. You will pass small villages and rustic farms with wonderful floral decorations. The village character of Aurach in Tyrol, the various hamlets and settlements and the wonderful location at the foot of the Kitzbüheler Südberge make Aurach special. It is not for nothing that the great Kitzbüheler artist and painter Alfons Walde has chosen the church and the small village square of Aurach as motifs again and again, thus helping them to achieve worldwide fame.

Day 3: Gauxjoch to Hartkaserhöhe
A shuttle will take you to the starting point of your trip. Passing through lush alpine pastures below the valley heights, you will continue to hike up into the beautiful mountains. Enjoy the tranquility and the flora and fauna. Via the Gauxjoch you reach the Trattenbachalm and the Hartkaserhöhe. Along the hilltop runs the border between the two provinces of Tyrol and Salzburg. If you want to avoid the descent from the Resterhöhe, you can use the Panoramabahn Kitzbühler Alpen II to shorten some altitude (not included in the price). A bus will then take you to Mittersill.
Option 1: ascent: approx. 820 m / descent: approx. 800 m / approx. 5-6 hours
Option 2: ascent: approx. 820 m / descent: approx. 250 m / approx. 4-5 hours
Meals included: Breakfast

Day 4: Tauernhaus Loop
In the morning transfer from Mittersill to the Matreier Tauernhaus. If you like, you can also walk from lake Hintersee over the Felbertauern and the St. Pöltener Hütte to the Matreier Tauernhaus.
At first, the trail climbs steadily through meadows and larch forests to the Venedigerblick. At the highest point you have a wonderful view of the glacier world of the Großvenediger. Over a well signposted hiking trail, the Großvenediger and the surrounding mountains always in view, you hike in the direction of Innergschlöss and over the beautiful alpine pastures back to the Matreier Tauernhaus. From there you can get to Matrei by public transport.
Option 1: ascent: approx. 650 m / descent: approx. 650 m / approx. 4-5 hours (via Innergschlöß)
Option 2: ascent: approx. 1240 m / descent: approx. 1040 m / approx. 6-7 hours (via Hintersee & St. Pöltener Hütte)
Meals included: Breakfast
Overnight in Matrei

Day 5: Mariahilf to Gsiesertal 
You start the day with a bus ride to Mariahilf. Over shady forest paths you go higher and higher up to the first alpine pastures and the Gsieser Törl around which many old smuggler stories rank. This used to be a smuggler route between Italy and Austria, especially in the 1920s and 1930s. The view sweeps over the valley to the Pragser Dolomites. On your way to the contemplative Gsiesertal, one hut joins the next: Oberberg-, Kradorferalm or Messnerhütte to name just a few. Almost everywhere the local food is amazing. The many traditional dishes are simply too tempting to resist: bacon dumplings on cabbage, cheese dumplings, Kaiserschmarrn, apple strudel ...
Ascent: approx. 780 m / descent: approx. 740 m / approx. 4.5-5.5 hours
Meals included: Breakfast
Overnight in Gsiesertal

Day 6: Gsiesertal – Frondeign - Wahlen– Toblach
The tour leads further and further south and the Dolomites are only a stone‘s throw away. From the Gsiesertal valley, the trail climbs steadily and comfortably to the crossing of Frondeign. The hike is mostly in the shady forest.
If you prefer, you can take the more athletic option towards the "Schuieralm“. The path winds its way down to Wahlen. The valley widens and offers a view of the Neunerkofel, Haunold, Dürrenstein and the Höhlenstein valley.
Option 1: ascent approx. 470 m / descent: approx. 440 m / approx. 3-4 hours
Option 2: ascent approx. 850 m / descent: approx. 810 m / approx. 5-6 hours

You get to the Auronzo Hut by public transport (ticket not included). Along the south side of the Three Peaks you first hike towards Lavaredo Hut and then up to the Paternsattel (at 2.454m above sea level) where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the 500m high north faces of the Three Peaks. Here the beautiful northern part of the hike begins with the typical image of the Three Peaks. Along a hiking trail you then join the Lange Alm and past the west side back you get to the starting point.
If you want to have a more sporty day you can take the bus to the Three Peaks View and from there climb up to the Lange Alm, go round the Three Peaks and take the bus back from the Auronzo Hut to Dobbiaco (ticket not included).
