Hiking Holidays in the Tirol
It is hard to do justice to the Tirol region. The region is so varied that words simply are not enough. The Ziller valley, for example, forks off from the Inn valley approximately 40 kilometres east of Innsbruck. It is encircled by countless peaks over 3000 metres high, the highest of which is the regal Hochfeiler reigning over all at 3509 m. There are 25 different towns in the Ziller valley, each and every one of which is worth a visit. Hikers here are spoilt for choice. A total of 1400 km of well-signed trails offering everything from easy to strenuous hikes lead from the valley floor up to the sometimes rugged peaks soaring high above. An easy and quick way to reach the glorious alpine landscape is of course to take one of the numerous cable cars in the region.
A particularly special destination is the lake-filled Alpbach valley, offering hiking trails and fabulous gorge scenery amid delightful villages. Whether you choose the Ziller valley, or the Alpbach lakes; hiking in Tirol is always an experience and, with Landhotels, pleasantly affordable.
