Hiking & walking in Alpbach, Tyrol

Hiking and Nordic Walking in the Alpbach Valley

Together with the adjacent Zilltertal Valley, the Alpbach Valley provides an amazing backdrop for walking and hiking trips of any length. On a hiking holiday in the mountains of Tyrol, you will enjoy amazing landscapes and an outstanding, pristine natural environment – you can just switch off and relax.

A hiking holiday in Austria is a good idea at any time of year. Tyrol is worth a visit in summer and in winter alike. Discover all of the special things we have to offer and have an unforgettable stay at our 4*S Galtenberg Family & Wellness Resort.

Explore the gently rolling, grassy hills of the Kitzbühel Alps and stop off at one of the many rustic mountain huts to take a breather along the way. Ask one of our friendly employees about the hiking paths and routes which would suit you best. The mountains around the Alpbach Valley are suitable for everybody.

The highest mountain in the Alpbach Valley, the Große Galtenberg, is always worth a visit, as is the Bögelalm.

Snowshoe hiking and winter walking in Tyrol

On a winter hike through the Alpbach Valley, you will experience the magic of snowy forests, mountains and landscapes as if you were in a fairytale. Our extensive network of hiking paths takes you through the breathtakingly magnificent countryside. Walking and winter hiking in Tyrol is particularly magical in the colder seasons.

Over 20 kilometres of winter hiking paths lead you from the Hotel Galtenberg through the snowy Alpbach Valley. Snowshoes will even allow you to reach places that are not otherwise accessible on foot at this time of year and where you will be able to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the pristine nature.

Whether you prefer to go for a relaxed hike on the spacious hiking paths or go cross-country on snowshoes, the healthy exercise in the clear winter air will do you good and is also plenty of fun. Look for animal tracks in the snow together with your children or simply admire the masterpieces of nature. From strange-looking icicles to frozen waterfalls: There is always something to discover in winter in the Alpbach Valley.

Guided snowshoe hikes and winter Nordic Walking

Guided Nordic Walking trips are organised 5 times a week to help you start the day actively in the winter. Guided snowshoe hikes are available weekly. It gets particularly romantic on the evening trips because we take fire torches along with us to light the way.
