Summit Hikes

Walks through thick forests and lush meadows are a beautiful experience, but there is nothing quite like the feeling of conquering a mountain. As you stand on the summit and gaze out over the surrounding landscape, you realise just what you have achieved. Tirol offers plenty of peaks just waiting to be discovered.

Climbing a mountain is not only a fabulous experience and a sporting challenge in its own right. Many people who make it to the top of a mighty mountain experience a moment of metaphysical awakening as they look out over the valley far below. It is a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, ask new questions and, maybe, even find the right answers. An opportunity to see things more clearly and from a new perspective. The mountain is a place of total peace where you can be at one with yourself and nature. "The mountain is calling" is a saying well known and much used in this part of the world. Most summit hikes in Tirol are challenging adventures in high alpine terrain and require not only experience but also good fitness levels in order to ascend hundreds of vertical metres from valley to peak. Some routes also require hikers to have a good head for heights.
