Hiking & Climbing
Leisurely walks in the valley or on a dreamy "Waalweg", short trips to the picturesque mountain pastures and idyllic mountain lakes, exciting trips to cabins and beautiful viewpoints or ambitious mountain climbing to grandiose three thousand amidst a high alpine scenery, the hiking in the Otztal Nature Park is extremely varied and offers something for everyone.
The OTZTAL NATURE PARK comprises all environmentally protected areas in the Otztal. The protected area stretches from the valley floor up to high Alpine glacier regions. Its highest point is Ötztal's Wildspitze peak at 3774 m above sea level. The mountain villages of Vent (cradle of the Alpine Association) and Obergurgl (Tirol's highest parish), as well as Niederthai/Umhausen and Gries/Langenfeld are located right at the heart of the OTZTAL NATURE PARK – making a perfect base for mountain exploration.
