„Seldom has there been such unanimity among our six ALPS guides during the developing of a tour: Transalp Latemar has to be done by everybody who likes our level 4-tours. Landscape and trails are perfectly combined. On top of that there will be consistently good hotels. Although we use the cable care twice, the tour does not lose its challenge – quite the opposite. For the downhill parts condition as well as concentration are necessary. Every day offers great panorama. What else could you want?“
