Overview

> Relatively short distances
> Suitable for families
> Dogs are also welcome
> Accommodation before and after the trek is included

Welcome to the Lasörling Höhenweg. Do you have not that much hiking experience, but want to make it just a little more challenging? Then the 7-day Lasörling Höhenweg included accommodation before and after your trek is a great way to enjoy the Austrian Alps perhaps together with your children. Enjoy beautiful views of the Venedigergruppe and Großglocknergruppe and stay in Austria's most hospitable mountain huts. The distances between the mountain huts are relatively short but can be extended with short day hikes from your accommodation. By the way, dogs are also welcome on the Lasörling Höhenweg!
 
Please Note! The distances are relatively short, but it is still a hike in the mountains on a so-called 'Höhenweg'. It definitely won't be a 'walk in the park' and you will also pass some more technical sections. The trek is around 50 kilometres long and has a total ascent and descent of 3,100 meters. During this 5-day trek, you will hike between 3.5 and 5 hours per day. Will you join us?

Why book with us?
 
You can do the Lasörling Höhenweg fully independent and self-guided. However, stringing an itinerary including all the accommodation together can be a complicated undertaking. Bookatrekking.com has warm contacts with all the huts on the Lasörling Höhenweg and we can take the load of having to book every hut yourself off your shoulders. Contact our Trekking Experts for free travel advice and arranging your Lasörling Höhenweg hike will be a piece of cake. 
 
PS. Would you like to bring your dog? That is possible for an additional charge of 40 EUR per dog. Contact our Trekking Experts to arrange your booking. 

Route

What's the plan? 

Day 1: Arrival in Austria
Today you will arrive in Austria and be expected in a pleasant Gasthof. Your overnight stay includes breakfast.
 
Day 2: Hinterbichl (1329 m) to Clarahütte (2038 m)
We start the day towards the Islitzer Alm (be sure to stop here for coffee and kaiserschmarrn). From here it's just a short stretch to the popular Umbalfälle. Beautiful waterfalls that are also popular with locals on weekends. From here it continues gradually uphill to the Clarahütte at 2038 metres. 
 
Distance: 9.5 km
Ascent: 740 m
Descent: 40 m
Accommodation: Clarahütte
 
Day 3: Clarahütte (2038 m) to Neue Reichenbergerhütte (2586 m)
On the second day of Lasörling Höhenweg, we follow the path back a bit until we can cross the mountain river Isel to continue into the Dabertal.  In June, there is a good chance of encountering occasional snow remnants.  Halfway through, we enter the Höhe Tauern National Park where we reach the Neue Reichensberghütte via a relatively flat path, which is located on the Bödensee glacial lake. 
 
Distance: 10.2 km 
Ascent: 730 m 
Descent: 190 m 
Accommodation: Neue Reichensberghütte 
 
Day 4: Neue Reichenbergerhütte (2586 m) to Bergerseehütte (2200 m) 
Have a good breakfast today, because a tough hike is on the programme. We start the day with a climb to the Göslewand that towers far above the rest. From here we continue our path to the Rote Lenke, some 25 minutes from the Göslewand. This is the transition from the Bödensee to Kleinbachboden. The Rote Lenke gets its name from the reddish-eyed stone deposits at the transition. From here it is only downhill towards the Michtalscharte where we have a great view of the Venedigergruppe. Another short stretch and we reach the sleeping place for tonight: the Bergerseehütte with beautiful views of the mountain lake. 
 
Distance: 10.4 km
Ascent: 610 m
Descent: 1000 m 
Accommodation: Bergerseehütte 
 
Day 5: Bergerseehütte (2200 m) to Zupalseehütte (2340 m)
Today is a beautiful day on the programme to the Zupalseehütte. The first part of this section of the Lasörling Höhenweg runs steeply uphill and immediately takes you over 500 altitude metres. After this, you go to the Lasörling hut which is a lovely place to have lunch and enjoy the view. From here, the trail heads east to where it gently starts to elevate. From the highest point, you have a panoramic view up to the Zupalseehütte.
 
Distance: 11,5 km 
Ascent: 930 m 
Descent: 760 m
Accommodation: Zupalseehütte
 
Day 6: Zupalseehütte (2340 m) to Virgen
The last day's programme includes another substantial descent. No longer following the Lasörling Höhenweg, we directly hike into the valley in Virgen. The path starts with a not-too-easy descent along the Zupal Bach. Near the mountain lake, we pick up the path to the valley.  As you descend, you get further and further below the tree line so you are soon hiking in the forest, which was not the case in recent days due to the altitude. Just before Virgen, you cross the Isel once more as on the first day and your hiking adventure comes to an end here. 
 
Distance: 8.9 km 
Ascent: 100 m 
Descent: 1240 m

Day 7: Departure
After breakfast, you can check out. This is the end of your adventure in Austria. We hope to see you again soon. Greetings!

You don't have much experience in the mountains or you are with your family and/or dog? Then the Lasörling Höhenweg is a great way to get acquainted with the Austrian Alps for the whole family. The distances are relatively short, but it is still a mountain hike on a so-called 'Höhenweg'. So it will be not a 'walk in the park' and you will also pass some more technical sections.
 
Dogs are welcome in the mountain huts along the route. Would you like to bring your dog? That is possible for an additional charge of €40,- EUR per dog. Please contact us so we can make the reservations for you.

COVID-19

Covid-19

The Corona pandemic has had its grip on us, and mountain huts in the Alpine region have had to take several preventive measures over the past two years. In the meantime, the first relaxations in the Alps are noticeable, yet it is definitely still a factor to take into account. Some Covid restrictions that are worth mentioning:

- Don't go to the huts if you have symptoms!

- Not all mountain huts are allowed to operate at full capacity yet, so make sure you book your stay in advance.

- To be on the safe side, always take a mouth mask with you.

- In some mountain huts it is still compulsory to bring your own sleeping bag, in others a sheet bag and pillowcase are sufficient. Your personal travel guide will tell you which rules apply to your route.

- Bring your own towel
