Nowhere else do you get so close to nature as on a multi-day hike through the Alps. It is a unique experience if you climb the peaks by yourself, explore the mountain world on narrow paths and enjoy the magnificent views full of happiness. Between the stages you stop at traditional mountain huts and meet like-minded people with whom you can exchange experiences at a hearty meal.

Framed in the north by the Venice Group and the Großglockner Group, in the east by the peaks of the Schober Group and in the south by the famous Carnic Ridge, East Tyrol is a real paradise for mountain hikers. On 15 long-distance hiking trails you can experience the unique landscape of the Lienz Dolomites, the Villgrater Mountains or the Lasörling Group. There is something for every mountain hiker: families stroll along the Virgentaler Sonnenseitenweg from mountain pasture to mountain pasture, ambitious hikers try their hand at the Großer Törlweg and passionate mountaineers sniff the summit air on the Lasörling Höhenweg.

Choose your favourite tour and experience a unique mountain adventure on the long-distance hiking trails of East Tyrol.
