    Book details


This guidebook describes the Stubai Rucksack Route (or Hohen Weg) and the Stubai Glacier Tour, two hut-to-hut trekking routes in the Stubai Alps in the Austrian Tyrol. The Stubai Rucksack Route is an ideal route for the novice mountain walker, and links eight huts without crossing glaciers or difficult passes. The Stubai Glacier Route is a hut-to-hut tour through the best of the Stubai that crosses glaciers and has ample opportunities for ascents of easy peaks. Both routes can be accomplished in eight to ten days. Both tours are given their own brief introduction with profiles of the route and other vital information to enhance your experience of each area. The routes are illustrated with colour photographs and sketch maps, and the introduction provides vital transport, language, accommodation and equipment information. Of all the many Alpine areas, few can match Austria's Stubai Alps as a venue for a first Alpine season. Shapely peaks, good paths and some of the best huts in the Alps make it ideal for the novice who wants to extend their experience beyond Britain.

In addition to his first loves - Austria and the Alps - Allan Hartley has climbed across the globe from East Africa to the Falkland Islands, in Nepal and Pakistan, the Zagros mountains of Iran and the Hajr Mountains of the Arabian Peninsula. He is a member of the Austrian Alpine Club and an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society.

    This is an extremely useful book, I wanted this for a future trip to do the Stubai 'Runde 'Tour' or the 'Hohenweg' route. The book clearly gives all the information and map details on how to get to the huts and routes throughout the Stubai region. It also covers alpine snow climbs and scrambles so it is exceeds the title of the book in guide terms. Great book concise, well written and researched........if the Stubai is on your tick list buy it, you wont be disapointed.

    Excellent guide book. Detailed descriptions and good illustrations, in a sturdy 'bendy' cover.Ideal for inside the rucksack.We put it to the test in Austria July of this year, and met all our needs.
