HIKING HOLIDAY FOR BEGINNERS AND EXPERIENCED HIKERS
Discover your passion for hiking! For beginners, we have easy to moderate tours up to a maximum altitude of 700 meters and a walking time of two to three hours (half-day) and six hours (full-day). Climb the peaks with your group at your own pace and take in the luscious meadows around ROBINSON CLUB AMADÉ or LANDSKRON. Picture-perfect scenery!
As an experienced hiker, you will love our more challenging tours. Enjoy half-day tours (three to four hours) or full-day tours (up to eight hours) on the surrounding mountain hiking trails with our ROBINSON hiking guide and a small group of fellow hiking enthusiasts. The larger ascents and steep descents make the tours an amazing experience!
The challenging hiking tour at CLUB SCHLANITZEN ALM leads you over the impressive "Karnischer Höhenweg" trail to the Italian side of the 2280 m Trogkofel mountain. Guided hikes at ROBINSON CLUB AMADÉ, which is situated in an enchanting corner of the Hohe Tauern National Park, guarantee fascinating wildlife watching opportunities. And since the fresh mountain air will get your stomach rumbling, popping into a traditional Alpine chalet for a hearty snack is also part of the mountain hiking experience!
All ROBINSON CLUBS in the Alps offer tours of all difficulty levels, from gentle walks through to high-altitude mountain tours. All mountain and hiking tours are led by expert guides with appropriate training.
