Gohikealps is about Inspiration and Advice for hiking in the Alps. For those of us who don’t live there, travel and sometimes extensive planning is required. This site is here to help you figure out where to go and how to get there.
Practically all the information you need is somewhere online and in books, but its sometimes hard to find unless you know what you are looking for. Almost every valley and town in that valley has their own website and they compete with each other to gain visitors.
Hiking is easy. You just go out and walk. However, hiking in the mountains always comes with an element of risk and there are things which are simply good to know.
Look here for practical advice based on common Alpine sense as well as my own personal experiences. Make informed decisions and control your risks.
And finally, there there is a number of stories from the trail, written by your truly, with a special focus on some of the spectacular longer trails to be found.
There are some day hikes as well as long treks, such as Dolomites Alta Via 2 and the Lechtaler Höhenweg.

Where do you want to go?
If mountains and the outdoors are a part of your way of life, Austria has it all. Even if it may not be quite as famous as neighboring Switzerland, Austria is easily one of the best hiking countries in the world.
Excellent food and wine are a given, as are awesome hiking opportunities. I will focus on the Northern areas such as South Tyrol (Alto Adige), home to the spectacular Dolomites, and the Aosta Valley, where the magnificent Gran Paradiso national park is.
… coming up. I’ll cover all of the countries eventually. Sign up and I’ll let you know when.
