Here are some of the best Treks in Europe:

1. Emperor’s Crown Trail, Austria:

The Emperor's Crown is a 65-km hiking trail in Tirol, Austria. It is not super high up, mostly taking you through forests and grazing land. If you are using public transport, you can start from Aschinger Kapelle, Going, or Kufstein. It is a fun hike with different scenery and places to stay overnight, good for beginners in Austria.

2. Alta Via 1, Dolomites, Italy:

The Alta Via 1, also known as Dolomiten Höhenweg 1, is a long, easy, and one of the best treks in Europe. It starts at Lago di Braies in South Tyrol and ends near Belluno. This 120-km route is split into 10 stages, usually hiked from north to south, with options for shorter routes.

3.Tour du Mont Blanc:

The Tour du Mont Blanc hike usually starts in Chamonix, France, then goes through Italy and Switzerland before returning to France. Along the way, you can stay in mountain huts or villages. The trail is challenging but mostly on easy to moderate paths. It is a good choice for beginners in mountain hiking.

4.Liechtenstein Panorama Trail:

The Liechtenstein Panorama Trail, also known as Route 66, is a 42-47 km hiking path in the Rätikon Alps in Liechtenstein. Liechtenstein is a tiny country between Austria and Switzerland. The trail follows the Rätikon ridge, offering diverse landscapes like forests, meadows, and alpine paths. It takes 3-4 days and starts in Ruggell, Planken, or Malbun. We stayed at Gafadura Hut, Hotel Turna Malbun, and Pfälzer Hut. Despite its short length, it's a memorable hike in the Alps.

5. Ortler High Mountain Trail:

The Ortler High Mountain Trail is a tough 120 km trek in Northern Italy, lasting 7 days. It goes around the Ortler Group, starting and ending at Stelvio Pass. This area has big mountains, glaciers, and cool birds like bearded vultures. Surprisingly, we saw few people on the trail. If you like being alone in nature, this trek is for you. It's hard, with long days and big climbs. You need to plan carefully, especially for Stage 4 where you might need a guide to cross a glacier. If you want to see the best bits without the glacier part, there's a shorter route that takes 3 days.

6. Karwendel High Trail, Austria:

The Karwendel High Trail in Tirol is a top hut-to-hut hike in the Austrian Alps. The mountain huts along the way, like Pfeishütte, Solsteinhaus, and Nördlinger Hütte, offer great hospitality and food. In 6 days, you cover 63 km and 7000 meters up and down. You'll see rivers, forests, peaks, and wildlife. The views are amazing, with tall limestone cliffs and distant mountains. We always consider taking friends on this trail.

7. Triglav National Park Trek:

Triglav National Park is Slovenia's biggest protected area, covering much of the Julian Alps. It is named after Slovenia's tallest mountain, Mount Triglav. Most trails in Slovenia are long and take weeks, so we made a shorter 4-day hike to see the best of the Julian Alps. You will see cool places like the Kriških podih plateau, Mount Triglav, Seven Lakes Valley, Luknja pass, and Planini pri Jezeru pasture. The trail is not long, but it's tough in spots, with scrambling and heights to deal with. 

8. Berlin High Trail, Austria:

The Berlin High Trail shows off the best of the Zillertal Alps in Tirol. It's a cool adventure with tough ups and downs, cool mountain huts, and awesome glacier and lake views. It takes 8 days to do the whole thing, but you can shorten it if you want. It is a bit tough, so it's better for experienced hikers. There are some tricky parts and tough downs, but you don't need special gear.

9. Alpstein High Trail, Switzerland:

The Alpstein is a cool rocky area in the Appenzell Alps in Switzerland. There's a U-shaped hike there that starts in Wasserauen and ends in Hoher Kasten, Brülisau. This hike shows off the best of Appenzellerland, like Lake Seealpsee, Aescher Mountain Inn, and Mount Säntis. It's good for fit hikers who like rocky paths.

10.Mount Triglav, Slovenia:

Mount Triglav, standing at 2864 meters, is super important in Slovenia and the Julian Alps. It's on their flag and helps people know where they are. You can climb it from different places like Krma Valley or Lake Bohinj, but the final part is always a tough climb. You can go on a 3-day guided tour which includes climbing Mount Triglav. If you are not into the tough climb, you can take a route that skips the summit. It is good for solo hikers, friends, or couples.

My family was amused by the beauty of Mount Titlis. It was covered with snow as far as our eyes could see. Definitely one of my most favorite moments in Switzerland. We skied through the hill tops and enjoyed the serene views. All thanks to thrillophilia.

If you like hiking as I do, I’d definitely recommend taking this tour up. It's an entirely guided tour along Zermatt, but I’d recommend having prior experience before taking this up. The views are absolutely breathtaking!
