Hiking from Alpbach

Spectacular walking in the Austrian Tirol.
Overview

Surrounded by a diverse and beautiful chain of mountain peaks, ridges and remote side valleys, the scope of walks from the attractive village of Alpbach is almost limitless. There are walks to the upper reaches of the valley or down through the pretty woods and villages, and breathtaking hikes to its higher peaks such as the craggy Standkopf or the dome-like Schatzberg – a name meaning “treasure mountain” because of the mediaeval copper and silver mines underneath it. In addition we will be able to explore the heights of the nearby Rofan plateau with its soaring cliffs and high pastures strewn with orchids and Edelweiss. One of our staff rates this as his favourite walking centre anywhere in the world!

This holiday allows for strenuous days achieving the high places with panoramic views, but also easier days allowing for pleasant rambles and lower level walks to discover the often flower-filled meadows, wide ridges, isolated lakes, hamlets, and the spectacular Kundl Gorge.

Both local and hired transport together with cable cars and chairlifts, which operate from mid-June, are used to increase the scope and diversity of the walks. A Lift Pass is included within the price of the holiday which gives clients unlimited use of the local lifts and buses, even when not walking with the group. We are based near the upper end of the peaceful and attractive Alpbach valley, which has a very distinctive character of its own.
