From Hochfilzen to the Almenwelt Lofer
The 24-hour hike between Tirol and Salzburg
Have you ever hiked for 24 hours? And that's during both day and night? On the Stoaberg hike you have just the opportunity to do this! Rise to the challenge and spend an extraordinary hike in the dreamlike mountain landscape of the PillerseeTal, Salzburger Saalachtal and Saafelden Leogang regions. In 24 hours, you will not only discover the highlights of the Steinberge, but also the soft grassy mountains around the three different regions. Rise to the challenge of the 24-hour hike and experience an unforgettable tour between Tirol and Salzburg.

The planned route for 2020 can already be revealed. The route starts from Hochfilzen and leads via the Burgeralm and the Spielberghorn towards Schwarzleo in Leogang. After the night break in Soldheim, the route leads via the Römersattel on towards Hirschbichl and via St. Martin bei Lofer towards Lofer. From there, a final ascent to Loderbichl awaits participants in the middle of the Lofer Alpine World.
The Stoaberg hike takes place every year at the end of June at the solstice and has a new route each year. As the route passes over high-alpine terrain, a certain level of fitness, a good head for heights and sure-footedness are required! The Fun Connection mountain guides will safely lead you from start to finish and are also on hand to answer any questions or to help with physical injuries. The 24 hours demand a lot from hikers, but every finisher would agree: the physical exertion is worth it every single time. When you tackle the last kilometres at sunset, your exertion over the past hours is soon forgotten and you can be proud to be called a "Stoaberg-Hike finisher".

Participation fee 2021
Euro 69.00 including mountain guide, food stops, food at the finish and a mountain descent ride in the Lofer Alpine World cable car.
The participation fee is paid at the start! No basic rations are needed!
Shuttle bus - from end to start!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Based on experience from previous years, the shuttle bus will this time also transport people from the finish to the start on the Saturday morning. It was always difficult for participants to find the right time of departure at the end of the hike. In this way, everyone has their car at the finish or can then be picked up at the end. So remember: There will be no bus back to the start upon completion of the hike! The exact departure time will be announced in due time before the date.
For energy-saving reasons we will of course avoid all kinds of special effects, as well as outdoor lighting and projectors.
If litter cannot be avoided, we will do our best to dispose of this appropriately and will take into account the regional waste separation systems. And for this we also hope for the support and assistance of our participants.
Seasonal, regional and, where possible, organic food: At the refuelling stations and during breaks in our restaurants and mountain lodges, you will be treated to regional specialities.
We will consciously use reusable dishes and cutlery as well as glasses, and will buy our drinks in bulk and/or reusable containers. Therefore, we request that our hikers avoid bringing food and drink in disposable packaging.
