Enjoy an eagle's perspective of Tirol’s most beautiful Alpine scenery. As the eagle flies, the Eagle Walk runs through Tirol – the whole length of the country, from east to west. Viewing the map you will realize that the walk symbolizes a proud eagle spreading its wings all over Tirol.
The 413-kilometer trail is broken up into 33 stages with a total elevation gain of 31,000 meters, accommodating a variety of skill levels and hiking preferences. Divided into 24 stages between Kaiser Mountain Range and Arlberg and comprised of nine stages between Venediger and Großglockner Mountains in East Tirol, the Eagle Walk offers endless hiking opportunities.
Whether you're planning a day hike or a multi-week thru hike, you will find the Eagle Walk to be a great outdoor experience. It offers unparalleled opportunities to explore, experience, and connect with nature. From gentle walks across improbably gorgeous landscape to strenuous treks for peak baggers, there’s a hike available for every level of experience. The Eagle Walk is a long distance mountaineering trail that requires respect. All users should be familiar with basic backcountry techniques, precautions and orienteering skills. Safety is paramount.
Write your own Eagle Walk story
Hikers who have completed the last stage of the North Tirol Eagle Walk or the East Tirol Eagle Walk can put pen to paper and write their story in the Eagle Hike Tour Book. There is one such book at the reception desk of the Arlberg Hospiz Hotel in St. Christoph am Arlberg (North Tirol) and at the Lucknerhaus hut (East Tirol).
