Stage 2: Johannishütte - Eisseehütte

The journey continues through the fascinating landscape of the high Alps from the Johannis Hut towards the Kreuzspitz High Trail, passing lush green meadows and later rocky terrain. Hikers have the option of a "detour" to the top of the Kreuzspitze Peak with its majestic views of the Großvenediger. Fine hiking and breathtaking views are the reward for a long ascent. The Eagle Walk itself leads to the New Sajat Hut, known as the "castle in the mountains", but it is still quite a way from there to the official end point of this stage: the Eissee Hut.

There are few more spectacular experiences than hiking in the high Alps with their majestic glaciers. Take a "detour" via the Kreuzspitze Peak for some incredible views of the mighty Großvenediger mountain.

Eagle kick

The section between the Johannis Hut and the Sajat Hut is known as the "Schernesschaft" and comprises an exposed ridge requiring hikers to be 100% sure-footed and not afraid of heights. The crossing of the nearby Schernersschlucht Canyon is also a memorable experience.
