A holiday in the Stubai Valley has everything you could wish from a summer holiday in the Alps. The picturesque valley villages, with their window boxes and surrounding hay meadows give way to woodland and high alpine pasture. Here cows roam, the views stretch far away down the valleys, and alpine huts dot the alms. On harder walks the rocky slopes lead to good scrambling to reach some excellent summits. The Stubai Glacier, whose highest point is 3333m, is visible on many walks.

Even with two grades we will never exhaust the almost endless selection of walks on offer. Several of the grade 6 walks take us to ridges and peaks over 2000m, and our grade 8 programme visits mountain huts and peaks around 3000m. We include the Stubai Valley Super Card in the price of the holiday, which enables us to use local cable cars and buses for free. Cable cars to the Kreuzjoch above Fulpmes and the Dresdner Hut at the southern end of the valley open up the magical world of the high Alps to both grades.

Our base is Fulpmes perfectly located in the Stubai Valley. It is just a short journey through the mountains from the beautiful city of Innsbruck which can easily be visited on a free day. Throughout the summer there are various Tirolean evening events and brass band performances to enjoy in Fulpmes.

Our holiday departures on 16 and 23 June will be at a more leisurely pace to allow time to appreciate the flora.

Aktivhotel Donnerhof

We stay in the very comfortable, four-star family run Aktivhotel Donnerhof in the centre of Fulpmes. Elisabeth Villgrater and her team have made us very welcome here for many years. We start the day with a large buffet breakfast, and the four course dinners are always something to look forward to. The hotel has a spa with a swimming pool partly inside and partly outside the hotel, a games room and is very close to a variety of small shops. The hotel also has its own farm. Complementary Wi-Fi is available throughout.
