The Venetian High Road, better known as "Venediger Höhenweg" in German, is a popular long-distance hiking trail in the Austrian Alps. This route offers hikers spectacular views of some of the most impressive mountain landscapes in Austria, including the Venediger Group, from which the route takes its name.
One of the best things about the Venediger Höhenweg is the variety of landscapes. The steep mountain passes and rugged trails will test you but you will be rewarded with impressive mountain peaks, glaciers, mountain lakes, rivers and alpine meadows. In short, you can fully enjoy true Austrian beauty on this tour. The Venediger Group dominates the panoramic view with its distinctive peaks, including the Großvenediger, Austria's 4th highest mountain.
All in all, this challenging hiking trail offers an unforgettable hiking experience for nature and mountain lovers. With a little experience and sense of adventure, you can get used to using steel cables here and there and walk around the Grossvenediger.

Please note that private rooms are more expensive and there will be an additional charge for this.
Accommodation at the huts includes dinner and breakfast. We will arrange this for you as well. This allows you to travel lighter and have one less thing to worry about. Bear in mind that lunch is not included, but it can be purchased at the huts. Here you can also buy an array of snacks and bottled water.
