The three regions of Nauders, Tirolean Oberland and Kaunertal Valley are known for their family-friendly walking and hiking. Those in search of tougher terrain will find plenty of options on the Kaunergrat ridge.
One of the most beautiful areas in the three regions is the Pfundser Tschey, a high valley dotted with wooden hay huts and covered in alpine flowers during the summer months. Also well worth a visit are the wetlands of Piller Moor. Visitors interested in local history can learn about how peat was dug right up until the 1970s at the Fuchsmoos moor in the Kaunergrat Nature Park. There is a themed trail on this topic which is also accessible for wheelchair users. Families will enjoy the easy walk in Nauders on the Austrian-Italian border past two lakes, the Schwarzsee and the Grünsee, up onto the Kleiner Mutzkopf mountain. On the opposite side of the valley is the Bergkastelbahn cable car giving quick and easy access to a number of mountain play areas such as the Goldwasser Adventure World. East of the Kaunertal Valley lies the Kaunergrat ridge with its fabulous views, for example from the Falkaunsalm hut above the Kaltenbrunn place of pilgrimage or from the Verpeilhütte hut at the foot of the 3,423-metre-high Verpeilspitze mountain.
