Hiking & mountaineering in Gurgl
Nature exploration in all its variety
"Tirol's Glacier Village" makes a true Eldorado for walkers, hikers and mountaineers. Situated at 1930 m above sea level at the heart of the Ötztal Nature Park, Gurgl is an excellent starting point for high Alpine and glacier tours as well as easy hiking adventures at high altitude and cross-border trekking tours. The trails lead through blooming Alpine rose fields, mountain meadows and secluded mountain flanks up to the eternal ice. On your own, with a private mountain guide or as part of the hiking program, a variety of tours guarantees memorable moments. Altitude meters can be conquered not only with sheer muscle power. Thanks to mountain lifts, the Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road and hiking buses you can easily reach mountain trails, vantage points and refreshment spots on the valley's upper floor. Pleasant side effect: Fresh mountain air and cooler temperatures make your hiking holiday a true health stay for body and soul in Gurgl. Highly effective full-body workout on the highest Nordic High Walking Trail also has positive effects on your well-being.
