Notes on staying at an Alpine lodge:

  • * Hut sleeping bag: blankets are available in the huts; necessary but mandatory is only a lightweight cotton/silk sleeping bag liner
  • Overnight stay in communal bunks or multi-bed rooms. Double rooms on request possible, except at Hofpurgl lodge and Goisern lodge. The hosts will always try to accomodate travellers who are not used to communal bunks in their own rooms if at all possible.
  • Dogs on request; not allowed in the sleeping areas. Attended stay in the winter room possible, partly dog kennels available, extra costs to be paid on spot.

We recommend travel cancellation insurance.
