Trans Tyrol Hiking Holiday Austria

Trans Tyrol Hiking Holiday Austria.  Combine serious wanderlust with a hunger for scenic views, and what do you get? The best long-distance hiking trails in Tryol. From famed to lesser-known gems, these trails are made for walking.

High altitude hiking is a multi-day trekking adventure in the midst of pristine Alpine landscapes. These hikes already begin at an elevated altitude, so walkers can explore Tyrol’s Mountain ranges from an eagle’s perspective as they trek through the Alps. Exploring the peaks on foot offers mountain trekking enthusiasts an intense experience of Tryol’s  incredible alpine landscapes. Fabulous views, satisfying physical exercise and welcome breaks with great food and drink at one of the many inviting mountain huts: Just some of the factors that will stick with you long after you return home from your long distance mountain trekking adventure. Depending on individual fitness and stamina levels, you can divide these long distance high altitude hiking trails into manageable stages and complete them over a number of days: At most mountain huts there is the opportunity to walk back down to the valley and/or access the high alpine trail from the valley.


  • Hotel and cabin hiking tour
  • Mountain castle of Schachen

  • Impressive gorges and balcony paths

Route summary: Quite demanding trekking tour with 5 to 7 hrs walking per day. Walking in high alpine regions. When walking self-guided a good mountain experience is required.

Where you rest your head after an active day is hugely important to us. We go to great lengths to find properties that are unique expressions of the region you are travelling through. Think of them as the charming and intimate garnish atop your trip. 

Whether nestled in the heart of a village or lost in the countryside and surrounded by nature, all accommodations are chosen using a strict criteria of comforthospitality, and authentic charm. We like to use locally run independent small hotels, guest houses and B&Bs instead of the larger “chain” hotels.  All of them are hand-picked, visited, and re-visited by our local partners. On most of our holidays you will be staying in different hotels and their  uniqueness and individual character only adds to the enjoyment of your holiday. You will also benifit with knowledge that your trip is contributing to local economies, and supporting local family run businesses.

You will be welcomed in a double or twin room (2 beds) – based on double occupancy.

Individual rooms are possible upon request when you book; they are subject to availability and incur a supplemental fee.
For biking trips, all of our inns have a safe place to keep bicycles for the night
