    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.

    The Stubai Alps are situated southwest of Innsbruck. The area has easy access and can be reached by local bus from Innsbruck in about one hour.
