Rise to the challenge: get back to nature
The Similaun, and other benefits
Similaun Alpine Club: Are you a member, yet?
Holidays in the Austrian Alps are enjoyed by mountaineers, hikers, and cyclists as well as those yearning for peace of mind, but did you know how much the affection is growing? From the first ascent of the Similaun in the Ötztal in 1834, by Theodor Kaserer and Josef Raffeiner, to the gradual development of a classic summit climb, many have made their debut here. Today, the discovery of Ötzi, also known as the Similaun man, is in everyone’s mouths, making the area more appealing to nature lovers worldwide. How apt that your hosts at the Natur- and Alpinhotel Post have created the Similaun Alpine Club: an incentive to your adventures, urging you to climb your first peak, and rise to the challenge. Join on one condition: make sure you ascend the Similaun. Located on the border between Austria and Italy, a 7-hour ski tour from Vent takes you to the Similaun along an easy glacier walk suitable for beginners. For those who prefer a relaxed climb, the Martin Busch hut along the way is a welcome overnight refuge, before assaulting the summit. And after your conquest, don’t forget to become a club member to enjoy its benefits. You can explore the alpine nature with mountain loving people, share experiences, learn about dangers, and free your mind. And of course, enjoy exclusive hotel offers as well as fantastic product discounts. So, heed the call of the mountain, make your debut ascent to Mt. Similaun, like others before, and join the club.
