      Hike to the Italian Border

      9.9 mi / 4327.4 ft gain
      The Gschnitz valley is one of my favourite places to hike in Tirol. Not only does it have some absolutely stunning scenery, but I've never experienced crowded trails whenever I've been there. This hike is an extension of another hike I've shared on here, to the Tribulaunhütte. Whilst we did take ...

      Hike to the Lichtersee Lake

      8.6 mi / 2198.2 ft gain
      Park at the large car park (paid parking) for the main Obernberg lake, but instead of following the trail to the lake, take the road on the right towards Haus Waldbauer.  At the end of the paved road, a gravel road bends off to the right.

      Climb Obernberg Tirol

      Whilst Innsbruck is known for being a top destination for world-class sport climbing, many of the most popular areas can get very busy, especially in the summer months. This summer we discovered the small crag up at Obernberg and it quickly become one of our favourite places to climb. The crag is...

      Hike & Overnight Stay at the Innsbrucker Hütte

      13.7 mi / 4511.2 ft gain
      Because the Innsbrucker Hütte sits on a ridge between two valleys, it can be reached from two sides; from the Gschnitz Valley or from the Stubai Valley. We chose to take the slightly longer (but less steep) route from the Stubai side. We parked the car in the village of Neder at the gravel parkin...

      Hike To The Schlicker See In The Stubai Valley

      9.9 mi / 2821.5 ft gain
      In this circular hike starts at the Kreuzjoch top station of the Schlick 2000 gondola and finishes back at the bottom station, meaning that the elevation gain you're hiking is about half of the amount that you'll descend if you follow this particular route. As you exit the lift station, you'll ta...

      Ski at Schlick 2000

      Schlick 2000 is hands down my favourite ski resort in the Innsbruck region. This small and modest resort is often overlooked by many tourists who head straight to the larger nearby Stubai Glacier at the end of the valley. But while Schlick 2000 might be small, not only is it usually quieter than...

      The Sulzenau Hut is a popular destination for hikers in the Stubai Valley in Tirol. There are a few different routes to approach the hut, but for this adventure, we took the route that follows the WildWater Trail (WilderWasser Weg).

      Stubai High Trail Section 4 - Hike from the Sulzenau Hut to the Dresdener Hut

      2.5 mi / 1640.4 ft gain
      We spent the night before this hike at the Sulzenau hut, and woke up early to watch the sunrise over the glacier, which I highly recommend. From the Sulzenau hut, follow the trail as it rises gradually up the valley floor towards the Sulzenau Ferner Glacier. On the route you'll follow a gushing s...

      Hike to the Mutterberger See Lake in Stubai

      5.3 mi / 2624.7 ft gain
      The hike starts from the bottom of the Gamsgarten cable car lift station at the Stubai Glacier, so it's best to park in the highest car park. (Most cars park at the lower Eisgrat cable car so the upper car park should be fairly quiet). If you're arriving by bus, this is the very last bus stop on ...

      If you are looking for somewhere to watch one of the best sunsets in Tirol, then Axamer Lizum might just be that place.
