Overview

The Adlerweg (or Eagle's Way) is a well maintained and waymarked 300km path traversing the length of the Austrian Tyrol from St Johann in the east to St Anton in the west. It follows established mountain and valley tracks to traverse the length of the Austrian state of Tyrol from east to west. 6 low-level alternative stages and a challenging 8 stage variant are included in this guidebook, with suggestions for a 15 day and 21 day trek. The six easier variant stages avoid the more airy parts, and eight more difficult Alpine Stages provide an alternative high-level trek through the Lechtaler Alps. Each stage is graded for difficulty but even the most difficult are accessible to most experienced walkers, and no special equipment is required. The route is also well served by good quality, well-positioned mountain accommodation and refreshment opportunities.

Meet the Author

Since taking up walking 20 years ago, Mike Wells has walked most of the recognised long-distance paths in the UK as well as many paths throughout Europe. He first visited Tyrol as a tour group organiser in 1999 and has returned there every year since. This is his first guide for Cicerone.
Mike Wells is an author of both walking and cycling guides. He has been walking long-distance footpaths for 25 years, after a holiday in New Zealand gave him the long-distance walking bug. Within a few years, he had walked the major British trails, enjoying their range of terrain from straightforward downland tracks through to upland paths and challenging mountain routes. He then ventured into France, walking sections of the Grande Randonne (including the GR5 through the Alps from Lake Geneva to the Mediterranean), and Italy, to explore the Dolomites Alta Via routes. Further afield, he has walked in Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Norway and even Chilean Patagonia. Mike has also been a keen cyclist for over 20 years. After completing various UK Sustrans routes, like Lon Las Cymru in Wales and the C2C route across northern England, he then moved on to cycling long-distance routes in continental Europe and beyond. These include cycling both the Camino and Ruta de la Plata to Santiago de la Compostela, a traverse of Cuba from end to end, a circumnavigation of Iceland and a trip across Lapland to the North Cape.
