Trail description

From the bus stop at the church in Galtür (1,584 metres), head south into the Jamtal valley and along the Jambach stream on a moderate incline into the valley. Follow the footpath marked "Fußweg zur Jamtalhütte". The first stop is the Schnapfenalpe meadow (1,735 metres), which is reached after about an hour's walk. Cattle from Göfis in Vorarlberg and the Upper Inn Valley graze here. It is here that the terrain changes, with alpine pastures replaced by rocks. Cross two streams on wooden bridges before winding your way up to the Jamtalferner glacier and the Jamtalhütte (2,165 metres). Once at the hut, go round the back and check out the amazing views. The hut is an excellent place from which to climb the dozens of surrounding mountains.

Return along the same way you came.
