In the first 4 days, we follow the "classic" E5, then we continue on an alternate route to Meran. We cross three countries within six days whereby the alpine world around us changes within hours. Altogether, we master 4950 m in altitude upwards and 6470 m descent and walk 106 km.
There are lots of possibilites for sleeping over and getting food supplies along the way. The accommodations can be chosen between huts and hotels. According to your own convenience you decide for a more rustic or a more comfort place. There are many possibilities to get tasty meals at the huts. If you want to bring your own meals you will find a shop in the valleys every three or four days.
The stage from Vernagt Lake to Meran will also be taken with the bus in this tour description. If you want to hike that part, you have to include one day in addition.
