Tyrol: The Otztal Trail (8Days/7Nights)

Walk Austria’s Ötztal Trail, a long-distance walk in the Tyrolean Alps which takes you through the varied landscapes of the Ötztal. Uncover its well-kept secrets promising a truly unique hiking experience. This region is well-known as being home to “Ötzi the Iceman”, a well-preserved natural mummy of a man who lived around 3,300 BC, which was found in 1991. Climb from the lush green valley floor, through dense forests and alpine meadows to idyllic plateaus with panoramic views of the Alps. Stay in the bustling mountain villages of Oetz and Längenfeld and the quieter more traditional villages of Niederthai and Köfels. While hiking between the villages, pass the highest waterfalls in Tyrol, green pastures, the sparkling blue Piburg lake and cross an impressive suspension bridge, connecting 2 of the plateaus. Refuel at the end of your walking days with hearty traditional Austrian dishes such as Kaiserschmaarn and local dried meats, mountain cheeses and a glass of schnapps, if you wish, to help wash it all down.
