It's always good to have a goal- and what better goal to have on a hike than a traditional hut high in the mountains? The prospect of a cold drink and a hearty meal can often lead walkers to discover reserves of energy and perseverence they never knew they had. Here are some of the best hikes in Tirol ending at a mountain hut.
They can be found perched high in the mountains, often clinging like eagle nests to narrow ridges, steep rock faces or the shoreline of crystal-clear lakes – we are talking, of course, about Tirol's mountain huts. Often located high above the trees in exposed locations, they offer the perfect base from which to explore the alpine landscape. Most huts in Tirol can be reached from the valley in a matter of hours via signposted paths and trails. Guests who want to spend longer in the mountains can stay the night high above the valley floor and enjoy the unforgettable sight of the stars twinkling in the pitch-black sky.
