The Stubai Valley Seven Summits

10 days of hiking, scrambling and staring at beautiful views all over a famous Tirolian valley.

Description

A few years ago the Stubai Tourist Board dreamt up the Stubai 7 Summits "challenge" in an attempt to attract more hikers and mountaineers to the region. They did an excellent job by selecting these wonderful mountains but why hikers weren't already flooding into the Stubai is a mystery.

The valley is home to several charming villages, a series of cable cars which provide excellent access to the mountains and, of course, some fabulous peaks. Ticking all 7 Summits will require you to be fit, confident scrambling on easy terrain and able to move safely through glaciated mountains. You'll also need a bit of luck with the weather, but that only adds to the satisfaction if you do manage to complete the challenge!

Doing all 7 in the space of a fortnight is a doable but challenging goal for those who really want to push themselves!
