An epic 17-day ski tour from just north of Lake Garda (Campi, Italy) to Lake Staffelsee (Bad Kohlgrub, Germany). It’s one of the lesser-known multi-day ski tours of the Alps, taking you through over 320km of fantastic alpine vistas.
But like with any great adventure, the views need to be earned, and with 20,000 metres of elevation difference across the tour, you’re definitely in for a challenge! Some of the highs along the way include Italy’s Carè Alto (3462 m) and Sulden Spitze (3376 m), and Austria's Middle Guslar Spitze (3128 m).
