Hiking across the Alps on the E5

Hiking Collection by
komoot

Six days, five huts, and two feet: On this adventure, you'll cross Europe's largest mountain range. And you'll do so — for the most part — on your own two feet. This classic hike along the long-distance hiking trail, the E5, takes you straight through the heart of the Alps. As you go, you'll hike past some of Europe's highest summits, in and out of valleys, and through some truly spectacular landscapes. Starting in Oberstdorf in Germany, the Tours in this Collection culminate in Meran in Italy's South Tyrol.

The best time to embark on this adventure is between July and September. At this time, the weather should be forgiving enough to ensure the hike will be an enjoyable one. And even though it'll be high season, you should still be able to find a room in which to rest your weary bones after a day on the trails. So — what's left? There's really no excuse not to go.
