Of all the many Alpine areas, few can match the Stubai in the Austrian Tyrol as a venue for a first Alpine season. Shapely peaks, good paths and some of the best huts in the Alps make it ideal for the novice who wants to extend their experience beyond Britain.

This second edition of the guide describes two celebrated routes, the Stubai Rucksack Route and the Stubai Glacier Tour. 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 ? known as the Höhen Weg ? 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.
