Welcome to a fantastic week of hiking in one of the most authentic alpine areas of the Tyrol. The Gschnitzdal valley bears the title "Bergsteigerdörfer", which is a seal of quality for sustainable tourism, issued by the international association of the Alps (Alpenverein). The valley can be reached by public transport in only 40 minutes from Innsbruck central station, and is situated at an altitude of 1.240 m. The west end of the valley is surrounded by peaks of more than 3000m, partially covered with glaciers, which form the border with Italy in the south and Stubaital in the north.
To have some previous experience in high mountains will make you really appreciate this trip. The selfguided touring packages offers two different difficulty options every day - the red and the black hiking trail.
Choose your setup and speed and be sure there is somebody to talk back to if you need.
All the trails described are marked and official hiking paths, which under normal circumstances are secure to use within their gradiation of red and black paths. Black paths, however demand alpine experience, secure step and no fear of hights. However, one should always be carefull in alpine terrain and be aware of alpine risks such as cold fronts, thunderstorms, landslides due to heavy rain, etc. and the effects of sun, dehydration and hight on the own body.
We collaborate with the Spanish agency Trekking y Avventura and Pathfindertravels from Sweden. We can connect you if you for support in getting plane tickets to the Tyrol.
Please note, that you are moving on own risk in the mountains and in case of insecurity or possible danger please take contact with us, when without coverage turn back or choose an alternative path without taking risks.
