Both wild and gentle, the beautiful turquoise water of the River Lech flows through one of Austria’s most beautiful Alpine valleys. The last wild river of the Northern Limestone Alps has shaped the lives of the people living along its banks for centuries. You can go on varied hikes of different difficulty in this pristine and diverse nature. From easy walks to challenging mountain Tours – you can plan each day as you like. Breathtaking views, wild nature and rustic alpine pastures are waiting for you to discover.

In this Collection, we’ve put together 11 Tours that are all unique and have something to suit every taste – whether you prefer to take it easy and taste lots of regional dishes or if you like to work up a sweat by climbing one of the highest peaks in the Lechtal Alps. If you’re not such a fan of travelling alone or if you want to improve your mountaineering skills, you can join one of the many guided tours. Lechtal Guiding, a group of several independent guides working together, offer interesting tours for beginners as well as courses from 23th September to 1st October on a weekly basis!

You can reach the starting point of almost all Tours by bus. The bus line 110 runs about every hour between Reutte and Lech and stops at all the main places along the valley. The only hikes for which a car is handy is the Gramaiser-Seen-Runde, the hike through Hölltal Valley from Bschlabs and the route to the Petersburg Alm from Hinterhornbach. Alternatively, you can also reach the starts with the Lechtal cable cars. You can use these, as well as the buses, completely free of charge with the Lechtal Aktiv Card.

No matter which Tours you choose, you can leave your everyday life behind and make memories that will stay with you for a long time in the Lechtal. What are you waiting for? The mountains are calling!
