Summer holidays and hiking - this is the peak for vacationers in Tyrol! All the more in the Ötztal, which offers everything from easy family hikes to glacier tours for fit mountaineers that the alpine altitudes have to offer for hiking and trekking: Alpine hut and alpine pasture tours, theme trails, lake walks, mountain paths and alpine tours - individually or with a mountain guide. In total there are around 1,600 kilometres of hiking and mountain trails, routes, and treks. Have fun and enjoy nature in the highlight of Tyrol!

Experienced mountain hikers explore the Ötztal on the 22 daily stages of the Ötztal Trek and courageous mountaineers climb up to the Ötztal Glaciers on the Obergurgler Hüttenrunde, while pleasure hikers hike from village to village on the Ötztaler Urweg. Families can explore the mountain lakes and torrents on the water runner trails and look up to the icy glaciers. Sölden is particularly family-friendly: On the Almzeit theme trails, hikers of all ages walk from station to station and thus learn more and more about the mountain world of the Ötztal.

In the Ötztal you will find numerous small villages and settlements, but the most beautiful places to spend the night are the hiking villages of Gries and Niederthai or the mountaineering village of Vent. The three villages are particularly idyllically situated and here you can start your extensive hiking tours directly from your accommodation.
