We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday, though unfortunately we had poor weather during the first week, when we were walking The High Alpine Way. The first hotel at Reschen is right by the very busy road to the border, had I realised that a room with 'a mountain view' meant that it was on the road side of the hotel, and hence very noisy through the night, I would have paid for an upgrade to be on the lake side of the hotel. The other really noisy hotel was in Malles, where the church bells chimed every quarter of an hour - all night! If you are comfortable wearing ear plugs take them with you. The otherwise excellent route notes began to get a little frustrating when they were frequently telling us to admire the splendid view - we just didn't see it. By the time we got to Himmelreich the cloud began to lift and we fitted in the walk to the Castle Juval on the same day. This gave us a free day, and we enjoyed a trip to Merano on the train, which proved to be much more interesting that Castle Juval - a major disappointment. The picnics proved by our hosts were certainly adequate for our needs, and the stash of muesli bars that we had taken with us went untouched. Being able to speak some German is a definite advantage for this week.
Thankfully the four nights spent at the Goldene Rose [optional extension at Karthaus] saw the sun come out, and we were able to finally enjoy the fantastic views. We walked from the Unterstell cable car to the hotel along the path recommended by Inntravel, which included a steep descent from Katharinaberg to cross the road and then path 26 to Karthaus. We much preferred path 24 which now descends to Tumlhof, via path 28, which isn't marked on the map supplied by Inntravel, but is shown on the Compass series map (on the wall in Karthaus village). The bus stop on the main road is a few minutes away from Tumlhof, and the bus up to Karthaus goes at about 25 past the hour. We spent the second night at the Bella Vista hut (bedding and towels provided) and climbed up to the Austrian border at 3270m the next morning, with lovely alpine flowers along the way and a good view of an ibex. To get to the hut we walked all the way from Vernagt, which took about 5 hours. We disliked the Pfossental Valley, a real tourist trap, especially after the wide open expanses up on the Austrian/Italian border. To make a day of it though we had taken the bus to Katharinaberg, walked round on path 24, now a nice path apart from one very small, tricky section where there has been a recent landslip, and then walked back down the road. We had requested an upgrade at the hotel, and had a very attractive room, with a lovely balcony, the only problem being that it was in the converted roof space, and was very hot - we suggest a second floor room would be a better option.
All the logistics worked really well, linking The High Alpine Way, with time at the Goldene Rose, and a bit of time on our own in Verona. Immaculate organisation by Inntravel who made all the necessary transport arrangements. We would love to see some more grade 3 walks in the brochure, especially ones that we can link together to make a two week holiday.
