Transtyrol. Hike across Tyrol.
An inexhaustible selection of peaks, mountain trails and cosy mountain huts: the trekking tour on the Tyrolean Trail between Garmisch and Innsbruck leaves nothing to be desired. You cross the national park Karwendel up to the Nordkette, where you float with a cable car down to the Innsbrucker valley. Fresh mountain air, high alpine flora and fauna and great panoramas accompany you on this hike.
Mountain enthusiasts and experienced hikers will feel at home on the Tirolerweg. The eight-day trekking tour through the Wetterstein and Karwandel mountains can hardly be surpassed in terms of variety: wildly romantic mountain scenery, blooming alpine landscapes, snow-covered glaciers and rocky edges frame the journey. Spend two days in the deepest Karwendel mountain range – on the Halleranger Alm. Not only does the Isar spring from it, but the Alm is also home to the 2,331-metre-high Sunntiger Spitze. At the top you will find a peak overlooking the surrounding mountains. A challenging hike to create unforgettable memories!
