Hiking in Summer
Hiking is simply a tonic for body and soul. In the Mayrhofen-Hippach Holiday Region hiking trails of various levels of difficulty offer unique panoramic views for leisurely and active walkers; as well as sporting challenges in the valleys, on high-level paths and along nature trails.
The Upper Zillertal is made for Alpine meadow and mountain hikes. There are both easy hiking trails and demanding tours for experience hikers on offer. Long-distance footpaths open up the full beauty of the region and leisurely trails lead to wonderful views and Alpine lodges.
Whether leisurely cycles rides or sporty tours by mountain bike and racing bike - Zillertal has an 800-km network of cycling trails to satisfy all needs. The varied landscape offers cyclists romantic routes alongside tranquil lakes and into sleepy valleys.
Racing cyclists appreciate the Zillertal High-Altitude Road with its breathtaking Alpine panorama. You can also use some of the cable cars with a bicycle - to conveniently reach the starting points for high altitude routes.
Challenging Via Ferrata
