There are so many options for being active in this Tyrolean nature park and glacier region. This is ensured by a total of 75 well-marked and varied hiking trails, but also numerous certified mountain guides from the region. Whether it's a laid-back walk through mountain meadows, an adventurous family hike, or a challenging ascent to a summit, you'll find a trail calling your name in the Kaunertal! 

Alternatives to hiking becoming increasingly popular include: mountaineering and especially alpine climbing. The Tyrolean Oberland is also well-known beyond the country's borders for the latter. It's not for nothing that the region has been dubbed a climbers paradise. Feel the Ötztal Alps on various climbing routes and mountain climbing tours, in the truest sense of the word! Sounds great? It is! And possible in so many ways here in the Kaunertal.
