Trekking on the trails of Austrian Tyrol
from 750 € / p. from 4 to 12 personsInfos & Booking
Here I offer you a star-shaped stay from Sölden in the Ötztal valley (the longest in Austria), with a comfortable pension as base camp. This allows you to discover different panoramas every day, to go to the foot of the glaciers, to climb small and easy peaks or to see them reflected in the many mountain lakes of this valley.
This trip is an invitation to discover a remarkable hiking area.
The highlights of this stay:
- Accessible routes at the gateway to the high mountains.
- A very rich and varied natural and human environment.
- A living mountain in the Tyrolean tradition.
- The numerous mountain lakes.
If you want to hike through Europe, I also propose a trekking in the nearby Dolomites di Brenta in Italy and a little further a discovery of the Balkan National Park in Bulgaria.
