Summit of feelings!
At 380 kilometers of marked trails, you can quickly get up to speed. The „Alpenhauptkamm“ at the southern end of the Pitztal attracts alpinists and walker with countless three-thousand-meter peaks, including the Wildspitze (3.774 m), north Tyrol´s highest mountain. Geigenkamm, Kaunergrat and Wildgrat, and as they all may be, high-altitude trails, alpine tours, hut hike, glacier hikes - the view and the panorama from the summit are as charming as a hut rest. „If all goes well,“ says the dairymaid, who brings a spirits to strengthen, „in one hours down…“Huts, some of them at almost three thousand meters, from base camps for further alpine hikes are promising destinations for day trips. On the pastures of the valley, partly surrounded by hundreds of sheep or countless cattle, one can experience peasant tradition. The mountain trails in the mountains invite you to a hiking day or a hiking week.
