Take on the famous E5 Alpine crossing from Germany, through Austria and finishing in Italy’s South Tyrol. This classic inn-to-inn route is strenuous long-distance trekking at its best and is a must for Alpine fans. Hike from mountain pass to mountain pass, taking in the scenery and serenity of the traditional Alpine towns and villages along the way. Experience a taste of the mountain hut life by spending one night in the fantastic Bella Vista hut, in a private room, where you can relax in the outdoor sauna and jacuzzi, before refuelling on hearty mountain dishes.
