Hiking through unspoilt landscapes formed and transformed by mighty glaciers and the eternal ice. Nature has already found its own way: alpine meadows in full bloom and mountain flowers have conquered the area! Along the entire route you can enjoy picture-book vistas of Großglockner Peak, the Dolomites and Sonnblick Summit.
- Steep mountainsides and lofty ridges are surrounding gorgeous Leitertal Valley. The rear end of the valley, at the height of Salmhütte, reminds of a primeval landscape due to its rushing glacier brooks and glacial polish areas.
- Mighty Großglockner Peak accompanies you all day long. What's more, Glorer Hütte offers superb panoramic views of South Tyrol's Dolomites and Sonnblick Summit located opposite.
- Glaciers, glacier brooks and sandy sediments, alpine flowers, mountain meadows and high altitude pasturelands provide hikers with loads of pleasant moments on this tour. Whistling marmots add to a really unforgettable day in the mountains.
- Prince-bishop Salm-Reifferscheid, who organized the first Großglockner expeditions, built the Salmhütte refuge hut at 2,644 meters above sea level in 1799 – it was the first refuge hut in the Eastern Alps.
- Surefootedness and a good head for heights are absolutely required for this tour which is suitable for children from 12 years. A footpath from Kals leading through Ködnitztal valley to Lucknerhaus or the toll road from Kals to Lucknerhaus are alternative access routes.
