4-day hut trekking in the Ötztal valley

After an initial introductory meeting and a first overnight stay in the Ötztal valley, we head up to the Geigenkamm ridge above Umhausen with our certified mountain travel guides. From the Gehsteig-Alm, our path leads us comfortably up to the Erlanger Hütte and the Wettersee lake. On the third day, the "Feilerscharte" at 3,000 metres awaits us before we descend to the Frischmannhütte. After a third overnight stay, we return to the valley on day 4 via the Waalweg trail and the Fundustal valley.
