The Achensee Sport and Vital Park is a paradise for passionate hikers and mountaineers. The region offers 450 km of well-kept signposted hiking trails ranging from flat and gentle paths to demanding routes up to an altitude of 2.500 metres. These routes lead hikers through a beautiful, varied natural setting and offer a truly unique hiking experience. There is good reason for the Achensee region being called Tirol’s Sport & Vital Park. Nestled between the Rofan and Karwendel mountains is Lake Achensee, Tirol’s largest lake, and a region offering almost limitless hiking pleasures in a unique landscape.
The range of hiking trails ranges from simple flat routes and leisurely family tours to challenging mountain ascents. The Rofan and Karwendel cable cars are perfect for helping visitors to conquer the initial uphill stretch – and they enable visitors to go on more leisurely tours with unique panoramic views of the crystal clear waters of the lake.
The Karwendel Alpine Park, the largest nature reserve in the northern Alps and also a Tirolean Nature Park, is famous far beyond the borders of Austria thanks to its beauty and distinctiveness. Visitors to this unique landscape will discover countless hiking opportunities – multi-day hikes, mountain tours, and much more.
A combination of walks along the lake combined with ship cruises along the car-free western shores of Lake Achensee to the“Gaisalm” mountain hut offer the perfect alternative for those who prefer a leisurely walk.
