Requirements and general information
The tour mainly covers alpine terrain. You will need appropriate trail running equipment and basic stamina.
Necessary recommended equipment: trail running shoes, functional clothes (also long trousers or shorts with leg warmers), second dry long sleeve, woollen hat / cap, gloves, backpack, rescue blanket, food and water (for all days), garbage bag, rain and sun protection, first-aid kit, head-lamp, mobile phone and poles. Even in the midsummer there could be a drop of temperature, so please make sure that you have warm clothing with you including gloves and cap. Please think about a second long sleeve in case there will be a waiting time in the next accommodation for the luggage.
Your route is recorded for posterity when you enter your name in every hut logbook in the Dachstein Mountains. The routes are well signposted, although the signs could partly be covered by snow. Hence, it is imperative that you take your routing with you. An experienced guide is available to accompany you upon request.
