Latest news March 2019
Please ask us about a trip during our 2019 season. Thank you.

We offer this Eastern week on the Adlerweg, a trek from St. Johann to Maurach in 6 stages. The full Adlerweg is the magnificent crossing of the Tyrol as far as St. Anton.

The first 3 stages of the Adlerweg are almost a trek by themselves as far as Kufstein. We traverse the Wilder Kaiser massif in some wooded settings. From Kufstein we take the train along the valley to start the next 3-day section with a long day to Pinegg. Lastly we take to the hills again, staying at a hut on route to the resort of Maurach.

The difficulty of the Adlerweg comes in a small number of higher paths, rocky underfoot; these are interspersed with long sections on wide forest tracks. There is a good deal of local farming and village life to see. Days can be long on the Adlwerweg due to the distances between villages, making it more demanding a trek than the landscape would suggest.

Where we stay
Your accommodation is based on the friendly hotels that typify the Austrian Alps; wood panelling and carefully presented breakfasts are common. For the 2 nights in the mountains, at huts, we have some options to avoid dormitories and can advise.

Baggage transfer

This option takes your bag to each hotel, so that you can pack extra kit but not carry it on each walk. On the 2 hut nights, your bag goes ahead to the next hotel. There isn't much to carry on the Adlerweg, whether hotels or huts, and we advise on what to bring.


If you join us as a private group instead of joining our scheduled treks, then we can adjust your Adlerweg East in various ways.

+ Shorten the trek to 5 stages, or add rest days
+ Trek 5 stages covering the highest sections either side of Maurach
+ Stay in more huts or entirely in hotels (with buses off-route)

Of course, on a private trip you can come on the dates that suit you. Except for the composition of the group and the dates, everything else is the same as on our scheduled trips.

Continuing the Adlerweg

After these 6 stages, carry on self-guided to complete the Adlerweg: please ask us about adding the rest of the trail, which would mean 13 more stages at our normal pace. We would suggest 1 rest day in Innsbruck. If you'd like to go guided the whole way, please ask about a private guided Adlerweg.

Why Alpine Exploratory for your guided trek?

We trek the full route, missing nothing
Our plan is to walk every step from St Johann to Maurach, the first part of the Adlerweg. We start with the aim to trek continuously, though events, weather and the preferences of the group as a whole can mean transport is used on occasion.

Expert knowledge of the route
The same careful research that goes into our self-guided Adlerwegs informs our guided treks too. We keep on top of changes to the route and we place a lot of emphasis on good knowledge of the hotel options.

Flexible, personal planning
As per our general ethos, even on our scheduled guided trips we like to be flexible. Single rooms are no problem, except at huts and some auberges where they're unavailable. (The single supplement takes this into account.) If you'd like extra nights in Kitzbuhel (near St Johann) or in Innsbruck, please ask us.

Small groups expertly led
Alpine Exploratory follows best practice in the mountains. Our leaders are all International Mountain Leaders and we keep to a maximum group size of 8 clients. The aim is a small, tightly knit group with an engaging leader, trekking the Adlerweg with safety, proficiency and fun.
