For many avid walkers, there’s nothing quite like hiking during the autumn months. The crowds of summer have largely disappeared, the wonderful mix of explosive colours, deep blue, cloudless skies and crisp, nostalgic breezes have taken their place and the surrounding high peaks may already have a dusting of snow. Fortunately, there are nice Alpinist Association shelters and refuges throughout Tirol that are open well into October, making it easy to do an overnighter that will be perfect for witnessing the change in seasons...

As varied as the rich flora and fauna of Tirol, it can be interesting to consider the various inclinations and preferences that make us all unique, especially outdoorsmen. People approach hiking differently and people hike for all manner of different reasons, but I have started to notice some broad groups that account for most hiking styles. There are those seeking solitude and there are those who want to push the limits. There are those who want to capture pictures of that perfect moment and there are those who want nothing more than enjoying delectable dishes served on quaint on-mountain eateries. Naturally, there are many exceptions but I’ve found these seem to capture most hikers I’ve come across. What do you think?

The Lizumer Hütte is run by two young guys with a clear vision. Regional produce and traditional values shape their philosophy. This commitment to sustainability covers everything from the meat and milk used in the kitchen, which travels just 150 metres to their door, to the wood used to heat the hut in winter. A real home from home in the mountains where ski-touring novices will find plenty of safe terrain to explore.
