Hikers exploring Tirol on foot will feel as free as a bird - not only on the Eagle Walk, one of the six Great Walks selected by our expert jury. Despite their many differences, all the walks chosen have one thing in common: they offer hikers the chance to get away from it all, discover the beauty of nature and experience a true adventure in the Alps. Most of the walks lead through high-alpine terrain and are challenging, even for experienced hikers. Those who decide to take on one or several of these challenges will, however, be richly rewarded with majestic views and memories for a lifetime.
Trail quality, landscape, accommodation, technical demands and special highlights - those were the criteria used by our expert judges when carrying out the difficult task of choosing six Great Walks from the more than 20 long-distance hiking trails in Tirol totalling hundreds of kilometres and tens of thousands of vertical metres.
