Do you enjoy being in the Tirolean mountains and are you looking for new, secluded places with unique natural landscapes? Then a trip to the Wipptal and its mountain valleys south of Innsbruck is worthwhile. The Wipptal is not only one of the insider tips among hiking regions but is also very easy to reach directly by train. Explore the mountain world in peace and quiet with activities in the fresh mountain air or recharge your energy on the shores of a mountain lake. More than 500 km of marked hiking trails in all degrees of difficulty, various themed trails for families as well as numerous alpine pastures and huts for rustic refreshments form the foundation for a varied hiking holiday with " move under your own power" - the motto of the mountaineering villages. Travel as you wish from hut to hut on high-altitude trails, there are even several high-altitude hikes for beginners to experts in the Gschnitztal and around the imposing Olperer (3,476 m).
