mountainlife trips

Staying in huts nestled in the mountainside delivers another perspective on the alpine life. Our Explore trips allow us to take journeys, remaining in touch with the nature this incredible environment provides.

Based in the Bavarian region of the Allgau we offer Explore Allgau Trips staying in mountain huts along the way on 2-5 days treks.

The Via Alpina, Jubilaumsweg, Heilbronner Weg or E5 route are some of the classic high routes we may encounter on our trips in the allgau region.

The Eastern Alps E5 route runs from Lake Constance in lowland Switzerland through the alps of Germany and Austria to Verona in Italy. This recognised long-distance walking route is remarkably varied and immensely rewarding. The 585.5kms takes you through mountain cultures and languages of four countries, landscapes unrivalled from glaciers to villages, and takes around one month to complete.

Our Explore E5 treks take on sections of the route, 5 days at a time. You can join us for a section at a time or contact us to tailor two or more sections over 2 weeks.

A week of walking in the Swiss Alps "Explore the Europaweg" or “The classic walkers Haute Route” will leave you astounded and in awe of what nature has to offer. Staying in mountain huts along the way you will be guided by an International Mountain Leader, your safety and enjoyment will be Paramount throughout this wonderful experience.
