The "WaiWi" is a multi-day tour that leads through the Kitzbühel Alps in the Pillersee Valley in Austria. I hiked from Waidring to Wildseeloder, the two towns after which the trail is named, in three days in July 2020. 🤗

At first, the trail may sound more like a fun adventure for toddlers, but it shouldn’t be underestimated. Instead of dwarves and friendly pink dragons, crisp climbs, and fantastic mountain panoramas where goosebumps are guaranteed.

The WaiWi is a great multi-day Tour for relatively fit hikers. Over three varied daily stages, you cover 50 kilometres (31 miles) and 3,200 metres (10,500 feet) of altitude difference. You can also choose a more relaxed variant on the first day.

Highlights include:
⛰ The walkable Jacob's Cross on the Buchensteinwand, a popular winter sports destination
⛰ Chamois and mountain pine fields on the Schafel and Kirchberg mountains
⛰ The breathtaking Wildseeloder Lake and the Wildseeloder hut
⛰ Sunrise on the summits of Henne or Wildseeloder
⛰ Delicious Tyrolean feasts at mountain huts on the Winterstelleralm, Wildalm and the
Wildalpgatterl

    It's high time to experience the Pillerseetal in summer too! 🤗 After I went snowshoeing there in January in the fairytale winter wonderland, it is now the finest mountain summer. …

    Even from our guesthouse in St. Jakob in Haus we can spot our first highlight today: the accessible Jakobskreuz on the Buchensteinwand! The motivation and anticipation is accordingly high when we master the first ascent of 600 meters above the "Katzeneck". The sun is burning mercilessly - unlike yesterday - and our shirts are already soaked when we get to the top.

    Leider wartet heute schon die letzte Etappe der kurzen und knackigen WaiWi-Mehrtagestour auf uns. Offiziell soll uns der WaiWi zunächst auf den Gipfel des Wildseeloders führen, aber wir beschließen – einem Tipp des Hüttenwirtes folgend – zunächst die Henne zu erklimmen. Ich wüsste ja gerne mal, wie der Berg zu diesem Namen gekommen ist, aber er ist mir direkt äußerst sympathisch. 🤗🐔
